Using the PSP as a web browser round up…

pspslash.jpgThe Playstation portable has only been out a few days here in the states and there is already a really cool hack for it- using it as a web browser. There are a few ways to do this and here are a couple- all require (for now) the game “Wipeout Pure” and redirecting the traffic via a proxy. Wombat Mobile has a great how-to here for Windows users… and here’s one if you have a FreeBSD machine- roto/moxy have some info. While I don’t think this is any scientific indicator of success- the portable gaming console that has the most hackers will “win”.

    I’m anxiously awaiting a browser from Sony and I hope it’s more compatable with regular web standards than the Wipeout browser is. For people using the Wipeout browser who would like a portal but don’t have a server to set one up, check out It lets you make a personalized PSP portal “home page” without having to have a server of your own.
