Surprise, surprise. It looks like Sony is yet again unprepared. A while back it was announced that Europeans would be able to register their Playstation Network Account before launch. That got postponed. Later on after that it was announced, that we would be able to register PNP accounts via a PC worldwide on Friday, November 17th. Well folks, that day is here. It has now been posted on ThreeSpeech that this has been delayed. So, once again we have a delay.
Remote Sign-Up Delayed
Now, concerning PSP firmware 3.0. The PS3 launched on November 11th in Japan. We were all hoping to be able to use the PS3 and PSP together, assuming that 3.0 would be out then. Well, it didn't come out then. During a Live Chat last Friday, Sony Inside Guy announced that 3.00 would be out "At PS3 Launch Time" and "Sometime in the next week". It's the launch and it's been a week, but our PS3s are still the only ones with that magical Remote Play and Playstation Store icon. Will 3.0 come tonight? It's possible, but with Sony's past history, I now am doubtful.
