  I can say that Sony has no plans to open up the PSP to homebrew apps. On 
the PS2 and PS3, there is Linux, which gives you close to full access to 
the box (although on the PS3, the RSX is still locked out).

  I am starting up a program for North American universities to have 
access to full PSP dev kits.  Once the program is in place, I will let 
people know.  The program is already running in the UK (contact me if you 
want to know which universities are currently participating).

I just got my hands on a PSP and I was start thinking
about the potential of this beatiful piece of HW for 
"serious" music making. In particular the porting of 
the PD engine on it, it would be
fantastic. I'm in documentation phase ;-)
Maybe starting from GGee PDA PD port and Cris McCormick
PD for Gp2x could be an good point.. Anyone interested? 

As far as I know, at least for the PSP, 
Sony was always resistant in running unauthorized 
code (homebrew apps) on their HW by continuously
releasing firmware updates that basically correct 
the bugs used for firmware downgrading. 

Mark, I know I should not ask it, but the temptation 
is so strong now that we know you are working for Sony ;-) :
Do you think Sony attitude on this will change in 
the future? Can you say something about this? 
I can understand Sony 
is worried about game piracy but at the same time this 
is braking an incredible amount of good software 
Best regards,

Alberto Zin
