    Hi All

    Ive had my PSP for just under a week now and am loving Ridge Racers.

    Just wanted to know, the UMD Movies and Music are meant to be region locked, but in Japan they are Region 2 and ive heard the UK ones are region 2 also

    is this true, plus dies this mean that UK gamers can watch vids on a jap psp?

    cheers

    Europe, including France, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Arabia, Japan and South Africa are all region 2. Japan is NTSC which is a issue for old TVs. But this isn't a problem for the PSP. I see no reason why we can't purchase UK UMD discs and play them OK.

    I think all the PSP games are region free too, and it's pretty much a guarantee that someone will hack the firmware or produce a disc or chip that will get rid of any region protection
