Video podcast support is coming to the PlayStation Portable thanks to a firmware update Sony published in Japan on Thursday. The update, which pushes the PSP firmware to version 2.80, allows the PSP to receive video clips through RSS feeds from blogs and other websites. Sony first added RSS and podcast support in November 2005 and expanded it in April this year. Additionally, the firmware update adds compatibility for the .3gp audio format used by some mobile phones, and greater access to content stored on Memory Stick memory cards.-- Now the PSP does video podcasts
The PSP has taken some ribbing, but Sony is clearly maintaining support for it. I lump it into the same hardware category as the 360 - this first revision feels a bit rough, but the next generation of it might be well worthwhile.
