A user on the 1up forums contacted Sony regarding homebrew, heres his email:
I am well yet another PSP owner .
I just found some sites which allow games to be downloaded and then copied into Memory Stick .
Unfortunately i have not been able to run them .
All applications and games were homebrews .
Is there any geniune reason for this ?
To be more specific
Is SONY trying to prevent users from running freely available homebrews .
Hoping for an early response .
The response from Sony was typical and to be honest no company such as Microsoft, Nintendo or Sony will ever publically say that Homebrew is good but heres the response:
