PSP firmware update incoming

Preps system for new music service.

The PSP firmware is getting an update, Sony has confirmed, in preparation for the new Qriocity music service.

A post on its PlayStation Blog explained, "This is a minor update that prepares your PSP system for the upcoming launch of 'Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity' – a new, cloud-based, digital music service from Sony that will give music lovers access to millions of songs stored and synchronized through the cloud.

"In addition, the Media Go application for managing PSP downloadable content on your PC will be updated with enhancements to the user interface and advanced photo editing tools."

Sony hasn't announced a date for the update yet, but it's due "soon".

The irritatingly-monikered Qriocity was unveiled in September, with Sony boss Kaz Hirai insisting: "Services 'powered by Qriocity' will revolutionise the way that users play, listen, watch, share, communicate, learn, discover and create their digital entertainment content.
