The PSP Go officially launches today and to prepare everyone for the next generation of handheld technology, Sony is readying firmware update v6.10.
Freshly detailed over at the PlayStation Blog , this latest update should be downloaded "to ensure full compatibility with MediaGo and with all PSP titles." Key features will include SenseMe channels, which is the new – and previously described – music application for the PSP "that uses Sony's proprietary 12 Tone Analysis technology to evaluate music tracks that have been imported from Media Go application on your PC to your PSP." Basically, this neat little feature separates and organizes your tracks into 12 different channels. The Media Go enhancements are also on the way – watch that video to learn more – and the PlayStation Store for the PSP and PSP Go is also getting an overhaul. Lastly, they tell us about "Tethering," which lets us use a bluetooth mobile device, like a mobile phone, as a modem to connect your PSP to the Internet. How sweet is that? Oh, the PSP sure has come a long way in just a few short years, and we have no doubt that Sony will continue to push the envelope in the realm of portable technology. They kinda have to, at this point; the competition in the form of the Nintendo DS won't sit on its laurels, either.
We're wondering how many people remember the early days of the PSP, and if they have good memories, they should be able to compare that time to what we have available today. …pretty damn big leap, huh?
