More Commercial Dumps

- Been away for awhile, so sorry for the lack of updates, but plenty has been happening, including:

- NeoGeo Pocket emulator for the PSP

- Also emulators of TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine and SEGA Master System/GameGear with Neo-Geo and Sega Genesis emulators coming soon.

- 6 new commercial games have also been released onto the Internet by a person/group going by the name of Dynarox, (apparantly using a tool leaked to him that belongs to the Paradox release group,) who also claims a loader is coming soon, probably in the form of a BIOS update for all versions of the PSP, which should allow you to play the games from a Memory Stick.

- We have added a UMD Movies page listing all movies currently available for PSP. IGN have a list of other UMD movies coming soon.

JavaScript PSP Browser Keyboard

- Here is a JavaScript PSP Browser Keyboard to make entering URL's on the PSP in the Wipeout browser much easier.
- And how about this for an idea? Using USB host devices as mass storage for the PSP. Good idea for those of you with high capacity MP3 players with USB Host capabilities.

More Downloads To Grab

- Much of the homebrew software has been quickly updated recently. We now have emulators for NES, SNES and GameBoy Colour, so those of you that bought a PSP instead of a DS and are having some regrets, maybe these will help :)
- Also available: PSPE Elf Interpretor v0.6. Might not sound like much but this is a PSP emulator for PC! Big news!
- Check out PSP-Hack's download page while ours is under construction to grab this stuff.
- In E3 news: Wipeout Pure and Fired-up will have downloadable multiplayer and demos for the PSP. So you will be able to play multiplayer games with one UMD, much like the UMD swap hack but without the trouble. Part of the game will be uploaded to the second player's PSP via wireless, much like the GBA does (but without the wireless).
- The first Gamma Packs for WipeOut Pure have also been released. Check here for the JAP version of the game while US players can grab the files from the official site,

- Sony claims New PSP titles will include a firmware version checker/updater and also release update v1.51 to JAP users.
- This site is going to have a redesign soon, so expect a Software section to appear for all this stuff.

PSP Rentals and GameShark Media Manager

- Blockbuster have now announced they are going to rent out PSP games in stores. Gamefly has gone and done the same with their service.
- Mad Catz has unveiled the GameShark Media Manager for PSP. It will be a bit of PC Software to make the converting and transferring of pictures, music and video to the Sony PSP that much easier. It should be released for $30 and could be a big seller, in my opinion, since the masses have no idea about howe to do this sort of stuff normally.

Dead Pixels

- Sony have been erecting a Giant PSP as a billboard to run demos on a huge screen for the masses to enjoy. At the moment though it has a few dead pixels :)
- The European launch of regularly sized PSP's has been pushed back to September, but that may be a good thing judging by the situation in Korea right now. Around 20,000 PSP's have been sold so far, but over 4,200 customers have complained of dead pixels and wireless troubles. Many have also claimed Sony's PSP customer care to be pretty crappy. With luck, these problems will be ironed out as the manufacturing process matures.

First Commercial Dumps Appear

- Exciting news announced at They confirm the ability to launch your own code from the Memory Stick.
- Even better, they have the NFO files of the first PSP games to be ripped! That's right, the PSP games have been cracked already by a group named Paradox, although there is still no way to play them just yet. The information in these ISO files could be useful to coders however.

PBP Compiler and IM On Your PSP

- Now released is the ELF to PBP Converter, the first App to help compile PSP games to run from the Memory Stick. This will not be useful to many people just yet, but it does signal the start of true homebrew development for the PSP. This site should be getting much busier soon!
- And for those that had not spotted these links on this site before, AIM and MSN are now useable on the PSP, (from the guy that bought you IRC on the PSP). All require the WipeOut Pure browser.
