Ive been wanting to get hold of a psp for ages now because they arnt coming out in the UK until september.

Does anyone know why this is???

Ive been so close to getting one off ebay but im not sure if its a good idea as i want UK games to work with it.

Will the US psp play UK games and umd's when they eventually come out over here??

Is anyone here selling one on ebay by any chance :confused:

Thanks :)

The US PSP will play the games fine but the Movies will not be compatible.

I believe they are stocking up on the quantity and working on new firmwares prior to release. The UK release might get the 1.53 revision (current version is 1.52).

But honestly who knows... maybe they just don't like Europe much?

Yes the PSP is region free when it comes to games.

Sony are as guilty if not more so than all the games companies in overlooking Europe. The market simply is not as lucrative as the US market, where you have a large nation with similar demographics and roughly simialr spending power. The European market varies wildly and sometimes requires language work.

Why they couldn't just release stuff in the UK when its out in the US, I have no idea though...
