    This is very very interesting.
    Didn't know that the PSP has taken off faster than the ipod did when it first started out. :shock:
    Download it now. Its pretty cool. The concept is great. I wish Sony can capitalize on this downloading movies from the internet idea. Download it and let me know what you think.

    Not that surprising considering the differences in price points (first ipod was $500?) for the products to which they are comparing psp.

    Oh didn't know that. I read somewhere that the ipod so far has sold like over 25 million. Is that per year or lifetime?

    Lifetime most likely, sales were fairly slow at the start. I think they sold a couple million the first year, but they sold almost 5 million in the first quarter of this year (listed as a >500% increase). I don't know how well the cheaper units have been selling since their introduction.

    Does anyone know if the new firmware adds support for WPA-PSK network protection for the PSP?

    My network has a WPA-PSK code and i'd hate to have to change that to WEP just so i can connect a PSP.

    Support for WPA-PSK (TKIP) was already added in 2.0
    2.5 adds to that with a WPA-PSK (AES)

    So basically, whatever security you have in your home wireless, you should be able connect to it with PSP without modifying the settings.

    I used to connect to my WiFi with WPA-PSK (TKIP), but lowered it to WEP because I Wipeout Pure game doesn't support WPA.
