PSP firmware 3.72 available, doesn’t do much … for now

It’s fancy new firmware time for the PlayStation Portable! Firmware version 3.72 is up and ready for downloading; the installer lists the following features: 

  • You can now set custom themes in [Theme Settings] under [Settings].
  • Support has been added for assigning buttons in [Remote Play].
  • A scene search feature has been added under [Video].
  • Sequential playback is now supported under [Video].
  • Simultaneous playback of content under [Music] and [Photo] is now supported
  • A correction has been made to the settings for some regions.
  • Support for PLAYSTATION Network titles has been expanded.

Nothing too fancy here, save for the expanded PlayStation Network title support. Word on the street is that this update will also tie in with an upcoming PlayStation 3 firmware update, which will allow users to power on their console remotely using Sony’s little portable that could.

No word on when all of this crazy talk will become a reality, but we can’t imagine that this PS3 feature will follow too far behind.
