I wasn't talking about that. I was talking about if i surf the web ON MY psp will i get the virus or spywares. When we surf the net on our computer, we can get them, but can we get them if i surf on my psp?

Yeah he's right, a virus is a virus... If you can browse the internet on your psp you can get a virus on your psp. Spyware, Im sure there is some out there.

Yes you can some viruses have been specificaly written to format you PSP and totally make it useless.

ZDNet has an article about this.

A new Trojan horse claims to help make PlayStation Portable run homegrown software, but instead the malicious code turns Sony's game player into a useless "brick."

The malicious program, which Symantec has labeled "Trojan.PSPBrick," is aimed at a crowd of "modders," or people who seek to hack the portable device so that it can run custom code and official game cartridges.

Check out the full story.

I see no reason why you can't.
