i just updated my psp firmware to 2.0 (FUCK ‘HOMEBREW’) and i’m posting this from my psp internet browser.

now my psp is no longer as useless as jessica chobot.

oh and no props to sony of japan for being slow as fuck and only putting the firmware online 16 hours into the day. this thing should have been up at midnight. fuck you very much sony.

this fucking thing needs a proper keyboard thing though. this update took me 20 minutes to type out.

  1. did it take you 20 minutes to get up to the point where you said 20 minutes or 20 minutes for the entire thing? If its the latter than my calculations suggest that the entire post took 25 minutes and 51.3 seconds to input.

  2. I still can’t decide whether or not to upgrade mine. I love the roms, but internet access at any hotspot would be nice. Decisions, decisions.

  3. the browser display is surprising sharp. thought it takes a while for sites that have lots of images to load up. and occasionally, if the site has TOO many images, it’ll just say “there is not enough memory”.

    oh and looking at hi res images is also out of the question. “there is not enough memory”.

    the site will still load up though. you’ll just have a couple of broken images here and there. no big deal really.

    oh and hey! tabbed browsing. and it saves all your logins and passwords. plus bookmarks. and you can save files and stuff (jpgs etc) to your memory stick.

  8. wireless?

    it’s a handheld. there are no wires. of course its wireless.

  9. I guess this moves the PSP to the top of the handheld world.

    #9 | Comment by kiko — July 28, 2005 @ 12:41 am

  10. psp can eat shit. handheld of what? games? what games? it’s a handheld of anything BUT games. sony fails at making TRUE handheld gaming machines. sony can go to hell just like jessica chobot.

    nintendo is king.

    all hail nintendo.

  11. For a moment I thought you preferred the PSP over the DS. My bad.

    Today at 7:00 pm ET/4 pm PT, Jessica Chobot on Attack Of The Show. When is Justin going to be on tv like Chobot?

    #11 | Comment by kiko — July 28, 2005 @ 12:53 am

  12. Hey, longtime lurker, first time poster. I was stupid enough to buy IGN Insider because I wanted some of their game guides — which are USELESS, by the way — but I read Chobot’s latest article. She is a dumbass. There was better writing in my high school paper. Her column goes on and on and on and she breaks just about every grammar rule imaginable. What’s REALLY annoying is that she consistently addresses the reader in a patronizing tone. People over 35 shouldn’t write about videogames unless they’ve been there through all the changes from 2600 on up. She obviously bought the Sims for PS2 and thought it was the greatest thing ever.
    I join Justin’s crusade! DIE DIE DIE!

  13. you thought wrong #11!!! fuck psp.

    i cant stand having to recharge its lame ass battery every 4 fucking hours.

    anybody who bought a psp is STUPID. i only bought it so that i can rip the piss out of it, and justifiably so, because i own it.

    the day i’ll be on tv is the day i’ll get to slap jessica chobot across the face live on air. which is unfortunately never. but one can dream.

    and see!! i told you jessica chobot was useless.

    kingofmonkeys has seen the light.

    and more people will once my super secret jessica chobot project is completed!

    #13 | Comment by Justin — July 28, 2005 @ 1:02 am

  14. You want to be like her. Admit it!

    Your super secret jessica chobot project is that your are going to have a sex change operation and plastic surgery to look like Chobot. Then you are going to kill her and take over her life. There I spoiled your plan.


    #14 | Comment by kiko — July 28, 2005 @ 1:26 am

  15. I used to be called jessica chobot, then I changed my name after that cunt became famous!

    #15 | Comment by WP_LeGeNd — July 28, 2005 @ 1:35 am

  16. Am I the only one around here who likes her?

    #16 | Comment by kiko — July 28, 2005 @ 1:39 am

  17. face the facts: nobody likes her!

    in other news, here is the list of improvements the new 2.0 firmware added:

    (This applies to UMD Video)

    # Input modes were added to the on-screen keyboard.

    but all that still doesnt change the fact that the psp is an overpriced piece of shit handheld gaming device, one that has games that nobody actually wants to play, or buy; instead, prefering to play roms of 15 year old classic emulated NINTENDO games on it.

    conclusion: psp still sucks compared to ds

    #17 | Comment by Justin — July 28, 2005 @ 1:59 am

  18. the fact that it’s wireless is awesome. i might have to get one. but yeah — i’d prefer some sort of foldy-keyboard first. and let’s face it — having two screens is better than one. even if you can’t really do anything with them.

    #18 | Comment by starryfever — July 28, 2005 @ 2:14 am

  19. But she’s on tv and you are not. Only people with huge fan base appear on tv. Would you feel different about her if she would have licked a DS instead of the PSP?

    Btw, the psp may be a few great games away from overtaking the ds. Fact?

    #19 | Comment by kiko — July 28, 2005 @ 2:19 am

  20. I should post her entire articles on teh intarweb so that no one will buy IGN Insider. you are the king, Justin! If for no other reason than you got to talk to Mandy Amano based on a website you created in a few minutes, you are a legend.

    Tell me where to report and I will fight this war with you.

    #20 | Comment by kingofmonkeys — July 28, 2005 @ 2:28 am

  21. #10 is dead wrong.

    Ash is king.

    Hail to the king, baby.

  22. Justin, if you can git on the funny box with the talkin’ pictchures, you could slap ChoSlut across the face with yer weenie.

    That would be some fucking funny ass shit if’n ya ask me.


    #22 | Comment by TheChef — July 28, 2005 @ 3:51 am

  23. what and idiot.

    obviously you know nothing about firmware.

    Did you know you can play over 15 downloaded umds.

    There is a browser in wipeout. and there is a new browser out that works without a game.
    VNC? ever heard of that.

    no more playing roms like 30,000 different roms.

    #23 | Comment by flushingcomic — July 28, 2005 @ 7:50 am

  24. who do you think i am? jessica chobot? i’m no noob. i know everything. 1.0 and 1.5 allows you to play ‘homebrew’ or ‘backups’ which, really, is just another way of saying pirated games (most of which dont even run that well, what a shitty job at emulating the psp does). those faggots that are trying to emulate the DS on the PSP? idiots. is that what people on web forums mean when they write things like “NINTENDON’T IS TEH PWNED”?

    says the maker: “it is currently running at about 4 fps and no sound it only runs a few demos and metroid intro and there is currently no controls” awesome! that’s why i don’t bother with shitty emulators.

    i have wipeout and the browser in it is SLOW AND SHITTY. and that japanese browser in that japanese game? shitty and japanese. vnc? vnshitty. homebrew? mostly shitty.

    and again, i didnt spend $250+ to play 30000 games that i already played and completed over 15 years ago.

    #24 | Comment by Justin — July 28, 2005 @ 8:27 am

  25. well your not the only 1 justin.

    althouh i have played alot of the pirated games of the ms and whay do you mean by dont run well.

    they run the same as if had a umd.

    did i ever say i liked nintendo? sure i like some games.

    the psp games out now arent that good. unless you like racing games, and i dont.

    why do you really need to go online with your psp, and you can do it fine without upgrading.

    Can you honestly say that the 2.0 is better than a 1.0 or 1.5,

    you cant use the excuse that if you wanna play the most new games and shit on it, cause there isnt any games that dont run without the new firmware. and we will bypass the 1.51 and above firmware checks, its a given.

    hacking is fun.

    im not here to fight you really.

    but if you really think that 2.0 is better thats your opinion.

    #25 | Comment by flushingcomic — July 28, 2005 @ 8:50 am

  26. oh yeah i’ve actually been on tv a couple of times before. was in a commercial that never aired. had a bit part in some tv show playing a businessman guy. also played a date rapist type person on another show and appeared as a junkie two different times in two different unrelated episodes on the same show (they all had standalone storylines). this was all in 2003.

    i hate being on camera. never again. i only did it because i was on the production crew and the network we were shooting for needed more actors so they used me. at least i got paid. and i got to have teh offscreen implied tv sex with that chick i supposedly took advantage of.

    #26 | Comment by Justin — July 28, 2005 @ 8:50 am

  27. So you won’t buy the Revolution then?

    Psp browsing is strangely amusing. (O_o)

    #27 | Comment by Crackpot Live — July 28, 2005 @ 8:52 am

  28. #26 i was talking about emus. loaders are a different story. as a multimedia device, it’s fairly decent. but as handheld gaming system, it’s no GB/GBA/DS.

    i’ve spent more time fooling around with things that the psp isnt supposed to do more than i’ve actually played it the way it’s supposed to.

    and of course i’ll buy the revolution! you wont get any extraneous bullshit with nintendo. none of that mp3dvdhddsupercomputerps3hd price increasing crap. you want an inexpensive pure games machine you buy a nintendo.

    and then you buy a ps3 and an xbox360 too so you can shit on all them equally and not come off as a stupid fanboy.

    /would rather play 15 year old nintendo games on a nintendo machine. viva la revolution!

  29. well, it’s midnight here and NO PSP UPDATE!! MOFO’S AT SONY!

    #29 | Comment by RegisteredPedophile — July 28, 2005 @ 12:07 pm

  30. you can download the update from the japanese site manually and then transfer it to the psp via usb cable. thats how i did it.


    i dont think you can use the network update on US PSPs to update your firmware… yet. the japanese firmware works on US machines though.

    #30 | Comment by Justin — July 28, 2005 @ 12:15 pm

  31. I just saw Chobitch on AOTS again…. she somewhat apologized for hating on nintendo, then talked about her gaming… “Yea I stopped PC gaming for a while at the original Unreal Tournament.. then I got into MMORPG’s with FINAL FANTASY ONLINE.” I shit you not she said FFO maybe 3 times. Its called Final Fantasy XI (11) you stupid fucking fake bitch, not Final Fantasy Online.
