The psp scene is probably the biggest console homebrew scene ever. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but the truth is, the homebrew sucks. Why? Because, the psp community is pretty much a bunch of different people getting together with no vision at hand! Without a vision or goal, it drifts aimlessly!
How should the psp scene be? First off, it needs to be more open source. There is far too much proprietary homebrew out there! But when people do go open source, idiots who don't actually understand open source make their own releases of that homebrew!
What we need is two simple things!
1) A better understanding of open source!
What should happen when someone releases something as open source (under gpl of course), is that other people help to improve the code. By improve, I mean tell the author or maintainer what could be done better by giving them better snippets of code to improve a function, to add features, etc. Then they decide whether or not to include it, and if the decided it's good/doable, then implement it, updating the current development release with the new code.
2) A vision!
We don't need 500 stupid button testers or 800 audio converters or 4583490732 xmb editors! What the psp needs is better applications! It needs a powerful audio player! It needs a powerful video player! It needs a better image viewer! It needs a complete and total replacement for the xmb! It needs better online integration! Better homebrew distribution system! It needs better games! Better browser! Better text reader/editor! It needs better homebrew!
The psp homebrew scene should be committed to providing the best possible homebrew, to eliminate the need for Sony's junk! It needs to work together to create and further projects devoted to completely replacing the xmb with applications that can do just about everything!
If the scene worked together as a whole and got organized, it's completely possible to eradicate the need for Sony and save the psp and it's homebrew scene!
