Sony updates PSP to 6.10 firmware

In sync with today's launch of the PSP Go, Sony today launched its version 6.10 firmware update. The patch gives all PSPs a new SensMe feature which, much like most Walkman players, sorts music by an automatically generated mood or genre, such as "extreme" or "dance." In a special twist for PSPs, though, SensMe can use the clock to set the mood by the particular time of day. The interface is also much more visual with large album art and a pseudo-3D interface.

PSP Go owners specifically now also get Bluetooth tethering. The feature will let the handheld borrow the Internet connection from a nearby device that supports sharing its online access, such as a smartphone's 3G link. It's not expected to be viable for gaming with current phone technology but will let PSPs browse the web or download games without having to be in range of a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Alongside the firmware, the MediaGo sync software has been updated to 1.2 and provides a much more iTunes-like interface for buying and transferring games, music and videos to PSPs. As before, it can backup these titles. The software remains free and works with all PSPs.
