Sony continually updates their PlayStation platforms, which leaves some users frustrated when newer games don't work on their old systems. Sony has recently introduced a new firmware that, in addition to giving you the ability to watch TV episodes and movies on your PSP through your home wireless internet connection, also allows users to play PS2 games on their PSP systems. In addition to the new firmware, you'll need a Sony PSX system to upload the PS2 games.
