What are some of the advantages of upgrading to firmware 2.0
There is no Topics about it, i already tried search
Oh here is one advantage, you make sony happy.
The background feature is AWESOME compared to PSPersonalize. I heard the avc format for videos is much better than mp4, but i havent switched over yet so im not sure. The web browser is pretty handy if you use WebAIM alot because hotspots are pretty abundant. If you dont use homebrew alot, 2.0 is definately the way to go. :)
i havent updated, but downloading music pics and videos directly is what im excitied about. if ftp works, then ill set up my own server to download and replace crap. now i can just download then watch episodes of my fav shows! (when i update)
1. You get to change backgrounds, which you will never see while playing games anyway.
2. You can play a better video format than MP4. Not enormously better but a little.
3. Integrated web-browser. Fun I guess if you're close to WIFI hotspots, but a little difficult to "freely" browse, sicne ther eis no keyboard and no Flash/Java support. But what's there works.
That's about it.
I'm sticking with 1.50 anyways, since we will probably see an AVI player that will play so many more formats (you see more DivX/XviD movies o nthe web than MP4/AVC or whatever). And personally I don't care about backgrounds or browsing without a keyboard. That's just me though.

ATRAC3 on pro duo best feature.
I'm fine with PSPersonalize. Wallpaper isn't all that important. I'm fine with .mp4. It's not that bad. I wouldn't waste space or battery life to play music on my PSP, so a music format with higher compression rates doesn't matter to me. And I don't give a damn about a web browser. So, 2.0 means pretty much nothing to me.
Unmentioned, but if you want to play Grand Theft Auto Liberty Cities or Burnout Revenge, you're gonna need 2.0. I don't care for the Grand Theft Auto series (too much wannabe Sims crap) and Burnout Revenge is just another PS2 port, so, I'm not worried about either.
Who really needs it?
Me since i use my psp as an atrac3 player on my 512 stick, but then agian i also have a 1.50 psp. lolOriginally Posted by dumas1000
Umm exsqueeze me i dont think GTA is in anyway like the sims u dont have to do anything to your character to keep him alive he can go hungry and nothing will happen....Originally Posted by dumas1000
It wont be at all like the sims, hes just trying to make it seem stupid to make 1.5 look better. ;) Some people would rather DIE than lose their massive rom collection, and i respect that. Me? I feel like giving up 2.0s features to play emulators i played on the pc before i got the psp seems....silly.
Advantages? Hahaha. I went from 1.50 to 2.00. Worst. Decision. Ever. My friend still has a 1.50 PSP and I want to see if he'll trade it for my 2.00 tomorrow...
I really do want it, on the other hand. I often find myself away from home wishing I could instant-message my friends or check PSPupdates. Also, I listen to music often on my PSP. However, since I've only got a 256MB stick, I wish I could have more room a lot of times. Thus, the better audio compression formats are something I'm looking forward to. I also don't want to lose any more space on my card from videos, so AVC compression is another feature I want. And the wallpaper function... well, call me a wussy all you want, I know that no one's ever reported having messed up his/her PSP using PSPersonalize, but I just don't like having a homebrew program flash my ROM. It also voids your warantee, and I don't want that to happen. Also, the 2.0 wallpaper function will let me use full resolution images. This is yet another plus for me. I also really do want Burnout Legends, as I loved Burnout 2 and wouldn't mind if Legends is based on the three PS2 titles. You're also forgetting about nearly ALL the new PSP titles. There will eventually come a time where EVERY game requires a firmware upgrade, and I hope you understand that.Originally Posted by dumas1000

After using my buddies 2.0, I personally can't think of any reason to upgrade my 1.5. If you are into using emulators and homebrew programs you may find that 2.0 is a very far cry from a spectacular upgrade.
And then there's the issue of immidiately losing certain *cough*games*cough*
One thing I can agree with though. I really don't care about homebrew and emulators.
N64 and Psone emus would be cool, but I don't personally believe it'll ever happened.
SNES, NES, Genesis. Who really cares? I don't.
Finally someone who feels like i do lol (markaman and dumas) Genesis and snes were a nice add in, but come on $250 to play the 20 or so games i played on those systems is retarded. The wallpaper function is awesome if you cant make up your mind like me. I got about 40 on my memory stick right now. And the browser, i like it alot more now that i know how abundant hotspots are.
And SkyfireKirin, sucks to be you, you shoulda thought about that before you updated. ;)
Those 20 games are more than you could be playing right now. At this moment there's very little need to update.
Any games need 2.0 RIGHT NOW? Nope.
At the moment theres very little advantange for someone who has 1.5. Those with 1.5x? Go ahead and upgrade.
I personally wouldn't upgrade when there's no pressing need to (I refuse to update for a browser with an ON SCREEN KEYBOARD, and 2 media formats Im not likely going to be using. Oh, also never used PSPersonalize so I don't care about the backgrounds.)
Am I saying people who upgraded are stupid? No. You wanna update go right ahead. Noones going to stop you from doing what you want to do.
Exactly! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:Originally Posted by azt3k

i think i would stick with 1.5 cause i get to play somegames that i havent got the chance to play. I could care less and play a new game but....their is nothing TO play...
Until something GOOD comes out like Burnout legends, SSX Pro Tour, Worms, Final Fantasy, and some other good RPG's
Ill stick with 1.5 to keep me going :ROFL:
You wont have to hold on much longer, i like rpgs and i cant wait for poplocrois :)
i cant wait for LCS its gonna be the bomb! :dance: :dance: :dance:
im not goin to get that game its just goin to be worse than san andreas u cant get planes and u allready no the environment u cant go into as many shops and the environmentis goin be smaller i think its guna be s*** personally
Oh, really!? Then, that settles it. 2.0 is teh rock!!! When I'm done with Pokemon Silver and get a larger stick, then I guess that I'll just update cuz' I love atrac.Originally Posted by SovietSlayer
I have 1.5 and am transferring ATRAC3 to my stick as we speak...er...typeOriginally Posted by SovietSlayer
