What Sony can do is, make two official PSP's. One specifically for promotional media and licensed games, and the other one specifically for developers and homebrewers.
- One (White) PSP will be up to date with the latest FW, and will ONLY play licensed software & UMD's. Nothing else would be included in the FW, other than the neccessary options to play UMD, and settings/info for your PSP. NO music, NO Photos, NO browser. It would have Wi-Fi, but only for offically licensed software.
- The other (Black) PSP would still be up to date with the latest FW, but only let you play homebrew apps made by any developers who wish to make their own games for PSP. NO UMD slot for this PSP. It would also allow you to add photos, play music, use web browser, your own custom themes (wallpaper). It would also have Wi-Fi, but more easier to sue for people who make their homebrew apps online. :)
This way, Sony can STILL win, and WE can win at the same time. Sony will still have one of their PSP's that they never intented to have homebrew on, and the warrenties would still be valid on it (this would be the white PSP), while the other PSP (black PSP) would let us to have anything we wanted on it. Sony would make money on both of the PSP systems from the buyers, and we would still be able to play homebrew on the more customizeable PSP. :)
Even though, this is already (technically) possible now, since we have the downgarder and everybody has 1.50 on their black PSP's now. But that's not what I'm talking about. For example, if Sony released a 3.00 FW, both PSP systems would be updated to 3.00 FW. However, there would be 2 different 3.00 FW's. One 3.00 FW for the black customizebale PSP, and the other 3.00 FW for the white PSP that would only play licenced games.
Do you see what I'm talking about? Both PSP's would be up to date on the latest FW's. Yet, one PSP would be only for homebrew & media (photos, music, web browser, themes), and one would be for only Sony licensed software.
