PSP Firmware 6.30 Now Live

The PSP’s latest firmware update, 6.30, is now live, bringing PSN Plus support and more, to work with the PS3’s 3.40 firmware update. While the PSN Plus is a PlayStation 3 service, the free Minis and PlayStation One games that are given with the subscription are also playable on the PSP, after the 6.30 firmware update.

At 31MB, the update not only adds PSN Plus support, but games can now be grouped and displayed in folders based on format under [Game].

The groups shown are:

  • PSP (PSP games)
  • Minis (PSP/PS3 Minis)
  • PlayStation (PS1 classics)
  • PCEngine

The PCEngine and NEOGEO folder options have been available on the Japanese PSN for some time now, but whether this means NeoGeo games and more will be available on the US PSN store, like Japan’s, remains to be seen.

We’ll keep looking for additional features and will update you as they are found.
