The PlayStation Portable will soon receive another firmware upgrade according to Eric Lempel, Director of PlayStation Network Operations at the Official Playstation Blog.
Version 5.5 of the PSP software will introduce an Information Board on the PSP system’s XMB (XrossMediaBar) interface. Those that have a PS3 may already be familiar with this feature which displays news and updates from the world of Playstation in a scrolling ticket in the upper right hand corner. Now with the PSP you will also be able to read up-to-date information about upcoming games, new content at the PlayStation store and other news when you’re at a wireless hotspot.
Other features will also be introduced including Memory Stick improvements, Internet searching for games from the XMB and a trial of Trend Micro internet security software for PSP.
No date has been set for the update as yet. For more information on the update head over to the PlayStation blog.
