Despite the rumors swirling around that the next version of the PlayStation Portable (PSP) will be announced on January 27th, Sony has announced on their official blog that they're not forgetting about the current generation of PSP out there in the wild. Unfortunately, Sony's being pretty tight-lipped about the update, providing a bare minimum of information on their site to announce the firmware update.
The newest firmware is v6.37, and details are non-existent. Sony has classified the update as "minimal" one, and only allude to the fact that the update will improve the overall system software stability during use of "some features." No explanation as to what they're talking about, or what features they mean, but it looks like the system should get at least a bit smoother in daily operation, if nothing else.
No timetable as to when the update will actually be launched, either. Just "soon." Will Sony include any special surprises? We'll just have to wait and see.
