New PSP firmware fixes download bug

Sony eradicating 'free space' error soon.

Sony has said a fix for the PSP 'free space' download bug is coming soon, in firmware version 5.01.

The hiccup, introduced by the arrival of the direct-access PSP Store, revolves around large memory sticks being incorrectly read, according to the US PlayStation blog.

This results in 8GB or 16GB memory stick owners being told they have insufficient free space when, in reality, they actually have rather a lot thank you.

The direct-access PSP Store turned up last week, and finally allows content to be downloaded directly to the handheld rather than through a PC or PS3. We're happy, and even more so because our PSN account works across both Sony systems.
