Latest PSP firmware contains ISO loader

Besides unlocking the PSP processor to its full speed (see our previous coverage), the latest PSP firmware (v3.50 & v3.51) contains another file that seems to be preparing for games running off memory sticks.


The file in question is called np9660.prx and appears to be an ISO loader. It was discovered by homebrew coder Dark-Alex. The question that remains is: what is the ISO loader for? Everyone wants it to be the beginnings of downloadable games, but it could be something totally different that has no real affect on the games we play from UMD discs.

I don't get it, is this the Sony firmware or the custom OE one by DAX?

There going to dump UMD and go with download only.. Well probably not but its a bad guess at the least. they need to stick with it some of the latest games have been sweet. Played BIA on my flight home to the uk this week. 6 hours didnt seem long enough.

DAX was going to build the no umd functionaility found in sonys 3.51 firmware into his next hacked firmware release named 3.51OE (Open Edition)

Unfortunatley he has since left the scene and there does not appear to be a coder skilled enough left to continue his work.

At this point in time anyway

You can already play downloaded games off the memory stick though. For example, I bought Hot Shots golf off the PS Store and transfered it to the PSP. It's like running a game off a hard drive.

Yes, although if they wanted to phase out the UMD they would need a way to easily use the current titles without too much hassle.
