Sony moves 250,000 new PSPs in 4 days

Hmm… perhaps Sony isn’t so screwed after all. 250k units moved in four days is pretty respectable. They sold just over that amount of the original PSP in Japan in all of July and August.

Good for them. I hardly want to see Sony go away. I feel that they’ve historically contributed significantly to the CE industry and that they probably still have a lot of cool stuff left in them. Wasn’t that long ago that I didn’t consider anything but a Sony TV. Hell, I have one sitting in my living room that refuses to die (so I can go out and get a huge ass LCoS, of course!)

Neuros Recorder 2 owners — Do not upgrade your PSP to Version 2.7

Bad Sony bad… Sony’s latest firmware upgrade causing problems with Neuros’ RC2 product.

Sony has recently offered a firmware upgrade for the PSP from Version 2.6 to Version 2.7. We donÂ’t think Sony did this on purpose, but, for now, PSPs with the upgraded firmware wonÂ’t play files recorded with the Recorder 2. A second result of this issue is that any files you may have recorded previously with the Recorder 2 would need to be converted to play on PSPs having the upgraded Version 2.7 firmware.
