Question about Sony PSP (Piano Black)

1 Answer

Need HELP about the psp update version.

Hi !

I don't know much about any of the game systems but I have a PSP (PayStation Portable) and I got a quick simple question about it for anyone that do knows....

I just got the new game "X-Men origins Wolverine" and as I turn on my psp and press start to play the game a message came up saying

The system software of your PSP system is version 5.20.
To start, you must update to version 5.30 or later.

Is it a good idea to change it to version 5.30 or is there any other way to play the game without changing the version?

I have 3 other games and I just want to make sure I'm not making a mistake that will not let me play any of my other game I had another psp before and I did change the version on that one and it kept on freezing and I couldn't find out the problem so I mailed to the sony company to fix it and they mail me back a new psp which is the I have now. I don't want a repeat of the issue I had before.

Thanks

Hi, firstly you will have to upgrade the version to play the game and secondly a upgrade is always a good idea, it will speed up, your psp and fix any bugs in the previous firmware and you will be able to play any games you have.

PSP not loading game


Hi,

I guess you must have updated your psp to more recent version while you were online. This i guess is one of the reasons why your psp games on your memory card is not showing on the screen.

You'll need to check the version your psp is running at the moment by going to System Setting > System Information, and you'll see the version that your psp is sunning on. Most versions above Version 5 might not play games on your memory card. You'll have to use umd's to play games.

PSP wont play games


To play game on your memory stick you'll need Custom Firmware installed such as M33/OE on your PSP, else if you play a UMD. The last CFw Update is 3.71M33-3.

What is version on your PSP? (on PSP Menu, move across to the "Settings Menu". Scroll down, select to "System Settings" > "System Information" and you should see version of your PSP.)

Here's, how to install CFw Guides. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back a detail should you need additional information. ^_^

The first check the version you are running on psp, >> Go to the PSP Menu and move across to the "Settings Menu". Scroll down, select to "System Settings" >> "System Information" and you should see version of your PSP. If the UMD has a high version than ur console, u need to update ur psp.

see at my blog for psp update guides.
