Sony prepares PSP firmware 4.00 with Google Search, little else

While the upcoming 4.00 firmware update for Sony’s PSP isn’t the sea change we’d expect from a .00 software release, it certainly adds an attractive feature to the mix. The handheld gaming device will now be endowed with a native Google Search client, allowing you to search the web to your heart’s content, storing up to 20 searches in your device’s history in the process. Great, but what about, you know, more features? The addition of Google Search is certainly appealing, but with something as momentous as firmware version 4.0 hitting the table, we’d sort of expect a bit more excitement. This is still relegated to the rumor pile, so we suppose Sony might have a bit more up their sleeves for the official release, but until we hear anything to the contrary we’ll remain just a bit disappointed.
