Sony advises US PSPs owners not to install 2.00 update


Sony has advised owners of North American PlayStation Portables not to
install the Japanese 2.00 update.

Although the update will happily install on US PSPs, with few problems
reported, Sony will only be able to offer customer support once it has
been officially released in the USA - something that will happen
sometime in the future.

European PSPs will ship with the 2.00 update pre-installed.

The Japanese Sony site that allows anybody to download the update file
has been updated since its release on Wednesday with the following
warning for owners of non-Japanese models:

"CAUTION: This update is only for customers who obtained PSP
(PlayStation Portable) for Japan which model number is PSP-1000 or PSP-
1000 K. Upon completion of preparing, we will announce update
information for the other countries/areas customers via SCE Group Web
Site or other channels. For theses customers who obtained PSP in the
other countries/areas, please DO NOT update PSP through this web site."

The US update came out before the 29th, yes?

I know a few people 'here' had updated from the Japanese site. Have you
noticed any issues?

True, but my question remains valid: Did any early installers notice any
problems?

Supposedly some people have had some wireless issues, as Japan's
standard differs slightly from the US standard.

Could the story have just been scare tactics by Sony to stop Americans
from updating early?
