PSP Web browser

Your PSP has built-in 802.11b wireless capabilities. High-speed, portable Internet access is literally at your fingertips.

The first section of this tips shows everyone with Version 1.01.52 of the firmware how to access the browser in Wipeout Pure for its intended use, and points you to the basics of redirecting the browser to one of the several PSP-designed web portals that open up these browsers to the full Internet, as well as many of the other hacks covered in this book.

If you are running Version 2.0 of the firmware, skip ahead to the Version 2.0 section to learn all the ins and outs of your browser.

Version 1.x Firmware
This introductory tips is going to point you to a few of the existing PSP web portals you can find online, and show you the basics of tricking your PSP into letting you surf the Internet via an embedded browser in Wipeout Pure. Here's what you'll need:
  • A PSP
  • A copy of Wipeout Pure (supposedly, a Japanese game, Derby Time, also features a built-in web browser and could be used for this hack; I haven't tested this)
  • An accessible wireless (802.11b/g) access pointck
  • An active Internet connection (broadband preferred, if not completely necessary)
