Hi there I recently bought a v1.52 PSP from Virgin, so I'm a newbie to this, so please bear with me. A friend at work is recommending the downgrade to 1.5 so u can play games from your memory card, but I've been told that this invalidates the warranty. So my questions are: What are the chances of all future games not working on v1.5? A knowing my luck, the downgrade won't work and I'll be left with a dead duck.... Do you need 1.5 to play movies or can u convert them to the correct format (MPEG4?) and stick them on your mem card? I only see myself playing 3/4 games max anyway, so that cost won't be prohibitive. However it would be great to watch movies that my friends have already downloaded, before deciding whether to buy them. So I guess I'm asking, is the chance really worth taking? Thanks for your help!
