    I need a decent game for my PSP. I love racing games and can't wait for GT4 - in the meantime I have thought about Ridge Racers or WipeOut Pure - not sure which to buy, I can get either of them for less than £30 from Canada, and I have some bids on Ebay USA, but I can also get them from CDWOW (£27.49 inc postage). CDWOW would be my safest bet, but how can I tell if they items are stock and where they are from USA/Japan?

    Also which is better for a games racing fan? I like Rage Race, I loved the original GT on PSOne (not as keen on GT3), and I have never played a WipeOut :eek:

    What do you reckon? From what I have read both titles are excellent.

    If you get wipe out you will able to do the browser hack so you can surf the internet on the psp, done it myself and its pretty cool, can even check my gmail account :) i would think the cdwow games are jap spec looking at the screenshoots on the site.

    When ordering from CD-Wow you don't pay any customs, something about the shipping routes they take.

    It's interesting. Definitely has a Tetris leaning to it, quite hard to "switch gears" but with a bit of practice I'll be ok!

    Definitely worth getting hold of, especially as it's by the designer of Rez.

    Really? I love Rez and I am hoping and waiting it will arrive on PSP, this sounds interesting!

    Hmmm, now three choices Lumines, WipeOut and Ridge Racers :confused: which to buy????????????? At least from the responses I know CDWOW are offering USA versions, but what about "Dynasty Warriors - PSP" is this not Jap only?

    Dynasty Warriors is a "New Release" on EBgame.com (American Electronics Boutique) so, no it's still a USA release!

    I guess if you want a racer then it's probably Wipeout for more "depth", RR looked more impressive though.

    Puzzle game - Lumines is really the only one at the moment and it's growing on me - just have to shake the "Tetris" rules out of my head!

    Better hurry - they're saying GTA ships 15th May :)

    jasonjbj, i have just writen instructions on how to setup the psp for surfing on my site @ http://www.psphardware.co.uk then goto psp portal.

    The only thing you need to change is the primary dns to 67.171.70.72 and leave the secondary to 0.0.0.0 as me psp portal dns is not working yet.

    That was the same dilema I found myself in, something worth thinking about though is that with wipeout there will be downlloads available soon, tracks, skins etc. thats what swung we. Wipeout is an amazing game although I'm on the lookout for Ridge now aswell, for when I get too frustrated at the Wipout higher classes, damn they get tough :rolleyes:

    Could you send me the url/link for CD wow for these games. I can only see the uk based site offering the games for £29.99, which i guess is only after the UK official release.

    thanks
