Sony released a firmware update for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) which finally allows the interconnectivity between the handheld device and the PlayStation 3.
However, it has emerged that the gaming giant may have slipped a little unannounced bonus into the package. Gaming sites are reporting that Sony has included a CPU clock upgrade in the version 3.50 firmware upgrade currently only available to North American users.
The clock upgrade will increase the down-clocked 266MHz CPU back to the full pre-release 333MHz.
An increased clock speed should pave the way for a new batch of more hardware-demanding games.
On Sony's official US website, the only confirmed upgrades in the version 3.50 firmware update are new communications settings and an RSS feed channel, and the Remote Play functionality enabling the device to connect to a PS3 over the internet.
