Some news from french site pspgen about a new anti-copy firmware i presume coming from Sony.
Heres the english to french translation.
You undoubtedly noticed, if you are in the search of a new PSP in this moment, that the retailers have consoles available less and less. Difficult to today find a pack 2Go or even a white console. This pseudo shortage has been the result of the absence of delivery of console by Sony for several weeks and the fall in the prices of the packs. By putting the question with several persons in charge for stores, we found an answer common that Sony would have given them: “we prepare a new console with a system anti-copy on the mother chart and we will deliver the consoles as soon as available”. The date given by the Japanese firm is “current of this summer”. Although nonofficial, this fact was collected near different signs with like goes back to restocking second fortnight of July. This short-term date lets think that this new model of PSP will not be a PSP 2 but just a revision of the current version. Then intox on behalf of Sony to reassure the retailers, or reality? This should find its response in the days which come. As of reception of the new PSP, if they arrive, PSPGen will make a disassembling in rule of the animal to allow you more. On the other hand, as Sony regards the homebrews as hacking (No how!), it could be thus that this system also tries to prevent the launching of those. This is thus likely to deprive all the future owners of PSP of the joys of the homebrews. In any case, if all that is confirmed, a thing is sour, the second-hand market will make a jump ahead… and the prices of the current PSP too. At least, while waiting for that the scene finds a solution with this problem
My view is wait and see personally, rumours until proven otherwise
