Ooo, guys. I just came from the store and was looking at the PSP Boxes.
There's now a letter R O_O...I didn't see any Q's...which is weird because the last time I went to the store all they had were P's.
Anyways...I'm guessing letter R is either 3.30 or 3.40...
I ordered a white psp from game.co.uk, it arrived this morning and it was a K with TA-082
I noticed this too. Just came back from my local Target and they had only R PSP boxes. R definitely sounds high like 3.40 probably.Originally Posted by shortboy
If anyone can confirm what firmware comes pre-installed with letter R PSP packages, I'd really appreciate knowing for sure.
You should just buy it.
You can downgrade it.

I just bought a psp. it was the media manager edition. (contains 2 gig card and a voucher to download the media center software). From the outside u can't see what letter ur buying. Cuz there is an extra cover (box) over it. When i openend it was an R - edition.
R = 3.40

Thanks man, I'll put them in a spoiler.
Your welcome . Are the pics okay? I called like 20 stores today like in whole holland there sold out. But then my musicstore on the corner just had one left, so i bought it :). btw. one shopowner told me that sony is working on a fix for downgraders so thats the reason they stopped shipping. But i guess its just speculations.Originally Posted by Abe_Froeman
So R is 3.40 I guess. Wow. PSP's must be selling fast lately because not too long ago I was seeing K and L box codes.
Off topic, it was just reported that 3.51 firmware update has just been released in Japan. It probably patches the Lumines exploit.

pics of brand new white psp:
letter R packaging (was 3.40):
white psp (already with metal gear casing):
close up view (already upgraded/downgraded/upgraded to 3.40 oe-a):
I went through the PSP boxes at my local Wal-Mart and at my local Circuit City and saw some PSP's that didn't have the label that tells the psp version?? Can anyone give me some information on these labeless PSPs??? Thanks!!
NONE of the boxes actually tell you the version, they just have a code that matches.Originally Posted by Guilmon
it is most likely K (the bundle with ATV game and a movie?)... 2.71 with TA-082 (which is downgradable).
Today I picked up a brand new Australian PSP base pack marked with the letter P and a copy of Lumines. Came with 3.11 installed as expected. As soon as I got home I downgraded to 1.5 then up to 3.51 M33 no problems!
I went to a target today and they had around 20 psps with S on them.
3.50 may be in stores now
Interesting.. I'll keep an eye for confirmations. thanks
Personally, I think it more likely to be 3.51 but we'll see in time.
Huh, maybe fresh stock from the manufacturer(s) contain 3.50. It doesn't really make much of a difference, as they can be downgraded.
EDIT: Hey, Neil; I think this part of your guide is a bit out-dated:

Can you confirm that with a picture?Originally Posted by HakFoo
****, so that mean there already getting updated in Texas
i bought a psp at best buy today and it was an S
i've been desperately trying to find out which fw it is and finally gave up and opened it so i'm posting pictures to hopefully help others=]
this is an awesome forum by the way! thanks=D
Hole ****, thanks for the heads up. Should be added to the guide
Yep, the S's are flooding the stores now, luckly I found one R at Kmart It was the only R left, the rest where all S. For those who want to buy a PSP, buy it NOW before the 3.51 and 3.52 make it to stores!

That won't happen for a while.Originally Posted by psphb
I got back a new boxed 2.80 from sony after returning my bricked 2.81 (L).
The 2.80 didnt have any letter written on its label.
It was a core pack btw. Identical to my old box except the color theme was different. The background on the box was white instead of black.
I'm glad you find our forums useful. Thank you for your confirmation.Originally Posted by silverflame44
well just got my new psp yesterday, tried to find a 3.50 or lower but didnt have any luck on dat, so had to buy a 3.51 with a letter T on the box, just lettin you guys know, thinkin this should be added on the list, and at the bottom where the 3.51 n 3.52 are to edit that they can be downgraded thru pandoras battery since this post comes out when u google this kind of info :)
