Some people have asked why do I need the Internet to listen to PSP music files? Well, you don't need the Internet to listen to music files if you've got MP3 stored on your PSP's little memory stick which has tremendous capacity; comparable to say a iPod Nano, depending on the size of your stick. Right now they go up to to four gigs, but they're always working on higher capacities. What you might want to use the Internet for is to listen to Internet streaming on your PSP, which has been available since the firmware 3.80 update. And there, you can simply go to your network tab, and you can download one of two Internet radio players, most notably SHOUTcast, which have many genres and you can listen to music on your PSP on the go. You can also now download music straight from your PSP from tracks that you've ripped, and you can go onto websites through the built in browser on your PSP and download music directly to the PSP, which is of great convenience. That has been added since the original release. So, while you don't really need the Internet to listen to music you can certainly use it to enhance the functionality of your PSP and have a a really nice music experience.
