no thanks, i will stick to 1.5 firmware & all my homebrew apps. :D

"But how do you play all the latest games?" I here you ask...
easy, i just use software that emulates 2.5/2.6/2.7 firmware & still get all the features.

If anyones interested in downgrading their PSP 2.5/2.6 firmware to 1.5 just PM me with your email address & i will send you instructions on how to do it.
