    Not sure, but you can play games from the USA, only the movies are region specified at present.... there currently isn't a software hack that I'm aware of that will let you change region settings, but someone on here might know, there has been a thread on PSPMOD that talks of a hardware hack versus software, its a modchip and that modchip can change region settings, but I haven't seen it out yet....

    Also if a hack "Homebrew" software is available or becomes available, it might be good to know what firmware you have since currently all but one homebrew is not support on firmware versions 2.5, 2.6

    The one I am referring to is a GTA Hack.

    EDIT : What JSH said below

    if you are on 1.5 there is a WAB homebrew that lets you change/bypass region settings for UMD video watching

    why do you insist on using such profanities?

    and i heard of a utility, its basically a whole program, can run .iso's and play UMD region free, cant remember what it was called though..

    I baught my psp from ebay, later on found out it was a Jap version, so i went to the nearest junior high school and played the first kid outside with a psp.(Burnout via game share)I asked him to see if he had any dead pixels he said "You might run away with it" i gave him my wallet, he then gave me his after he saw my credit card, turned around switched the memory card and hit default on his and my psp walked away with my wallet and mine American PSP. Now i can watch US umd's.

    P.S. Fuck down grading

    i think he's bragging that he stole a kid's psp from him and left him with his jap one...?

    i have umd emulator v0.8 but i don't think it helps me play my region 1 dvd
    do i need to get fastloader or another homebrew entirely to enable me to boot a region 1 umd on a region 2 psp?

    apologies for being a newb but there is conflicting information here (some says no region 1 movies on region 2 psp's, others say that all you need is the right software).
