Thank CHRIST for that: PSP firmware update 6.39 coming!

PSP owners may be feeling sad that they’ve missed out on at least seventeen firmware updates since the PlayStation Network went down, but do not despair!

Sony has confirmed that update 6.39 is coming soon, and you’re all invited to the update party. Hallelujah!

The main point of the update is to allow users to reset their passwords, although it also includes “system software stability” improvements. Mostly however, it gives you the opportunity to sit and watch the PSP slowly updating itself, after demanding that you charge it for an hour because the battery died while it was switched off.

The good times are back!
