PSP has the bomb: a web browser

Poor Playstation portable owners - they had to wait a whole 24 hours before they could browse the Internet on their handheld's wifi connection. We STILL don't have this on the DS. I'm sure we'll all a little jealous - but we can take some comfort in the fact that this isn't a unique homebrew app running on the PSP - but rather an exploitation of an in-game artifact.

Wipeout Pure for PSP has a feature that lets you access updated content online (such as grabbing new textures or levels). This feature has been exploited to allow browing with some measure of control.

The scales are tipping.

This is quite a useless feat. In order to view a web page, you have to create a local redirect in the WiFi network to send the PSP the wrong web page. The browser doesn't support much functionality(not even frames). However, it is still something fun to mess around with if your bored.

Well actually now you can set your dns to fugimax ip and the wipeout Download will link you to his portal page/google. Oh, and text entry DOES work. Javascript only works for alert boxes afaik.

This is still pretty admirable. I'm glad I got my PSP! ^_^
