PSP Password Firmware Update Coming...

Yesterday, Sony has announced a new firmware update for PSPs that will hit "soon," allowing us to reset our passwords and hopefully access the store which is also supposed to come back up today:

Hi everyone. A new PSP system software update, v6.39, will be released soon. With this update, users who need to change their PlayStation Network password will be guided through the process. Also, system software stability during use of some features will be improved.

So, free up some MemoryStick space (and my, how they've grown) and get ready to join the rush in downloading your free games, at which point I reckon the store will crash again for a few more days under the weight of demand.
