Tuesday, 12th April 2011 12:49 GMT By Stace Harman

Bored with the current version of the PSP system software? Looking for an update to spice things up a bit? You’re in luck: Firmware v6.38 will be arriving “soon”.

News that a PSP system update’s incoming has been spied over on the US PlayStation blog.

The update looks to be a vanilla one, with Sony saying: “System software stability during use of some features will be improved.”

Slightly more exciting, is the news that a Media Go update is due this week, which will add support for Sony’s new Xperia mobile phones – PLAY, arc and neo – as well as WALKMAN devices.

    Hope the Xperia Play gets PSN connectivity, PSP games should be a must have by the time PlayStation Suite arrives.

    i was going to get the Xperia play….but not anymore. I went into Verizion last night, asked the store manager about it. He told me that the phone would be $499.99 with a new 2yr contract and $799.99 out right (no contract). Then the plan would be from $60-$90……fuck that really.

    That’s just ridiculous. I do reckon I could find it for $0 upfront on a $49 per month plan for 24 months. American providers are a joke, do you guys still get charged for receiving messages?

    yes…but thats why the plan is so high. For unlimited text its $20 by itself. If you do unlimited talk and text, thats $60. Then being that its a “smartphone” you have to have the unlimited data plan which costs $30/mnth. So all together to have unlimited everything, its $90 + taxes and service fees (by the end of it, some people spend $100 -$120 per month for one line). But there are basic plans like 500 minutes and 200 texts for $45 and then still, you have to have the unlimited web for $30… out here.

    You guys get much better internet plans though. On a wireless broadband deal we would only get 8gb per month on a $40 plan, & only within the pass couple of years have we gotten decent home broadband deals. My home ADSL2+ broadband deal gives us 120gb quota & it includes line rental & unlimited calls Optus-to-Optus all for $79, only a year ago we were getting 30gb of quota for the same price so we upgraded to the $129 deal that gave us 120gb of quota because we feared the 15cent per MB excess usage but suddenly we were given 1tb of quota & that is almost impossible to use so we saved $50 & went back down to the $79 deal because 120gb is more than I could imagine myself ever using without torrenting 24/7.
