anyone know where i can buy jap movies, i can only seem to find us ones
Try looking at http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-14-71-bb.html looks like they have some
Who will pay £20 + p&p for a umd movie. The price has shocked me. Anyone paying that is either rich or mad!!
Yea i never took notice of the price tbh but there same at http://www.lik-sang.com/list.php?nav=over&category=312&
they are but expensive be better of buying a decent sized memory card and convert some dvd's really
VG+ tend to have most usa umd for £13-£18 delivered which is cheaper but when look at dvd price you may aswell get dvd and convert to a memory card.
Wow, liksang have them for £26 + p%p + customs. That will be well over £30.
I wont be buying them until they are sub £10. I have a R2 so cant buy the cheap R1's but i am sure we will see the prices plummet very soon.
If only we could get them anywhere .
Ever heard of ebay, if you want one so badly you can go there and there are always people with stock.
Just buy a 512mb card which can hold a full movie in decent watchable quality, in fact 2 movies if you really arnt bothered about quality but it is still watchable.
Yeah, currently awaiting delivery of one of the Hong Kong supplied ones from e-bay.
From what I've read though I thought you need 1GB to get good quality video? Looking forward to getting the 512 one anyway so I can start experimenting .
you need a jap psp to play jap umd MOVIES... because the movies are region coded unlike the games
At the moment i have a 256mb until the prices come down a bit then i will get a 1gb. I can fit about 1.5 hours of watchable video. For most people it is not good enough quality but for the timebeing i am happy with it.
This is one of the main advantages of getting a region 1 machine. I got three films for £5 each shipped from DVDsoon. They now have well over 100 listed on there site, with discount most end up around £7 delivered.
If you want to watch UMD films on it Region 1 is definately the way to go.
do not recomend dvdsoon to people mate, i know people who have yet to recives stuff from em some months down the line
Well I got a PSP console from them for £105 shipped the UMD films mentioned for £5 each and around 50 Dvds for around £3,50 - £4 each.
So I will recommend them
All delivered no problems. Yes some delays up to a month or more in some cases but what do you expect at those prices ?
i have just bought a psp from canada will i be able to play umds from DVDsoon Thanks
Yes Canadian PSP is region 1. It will play movies from DVD Soon. Make sure you dont get the VF ones (Version Francais) They have French writing on the packaging (Although the PSP stuff seem to come with two covers anyway)
cheers is dvdsoon the cheapest place for games and movies
Certainly not for games because of the import duty situation. MovieTyme seems to be about the best currently, £25 a game delivered and they are sent from the UK.
vidogameplus.ca are also good and work out around the same price, they mark down to try and avoid customs. Personally I would go with Moivetyme for games at the moment.
For region 1 UMD movies you wont get them any cheaper than DVDsoon currently I would say.
what should i do buy the jap one or wait for 3 months and gat an american one and if i get a jap one can i play multyplayr games with my freinds a game like coded arms ?
Afaik games are ubiquitous, only the umd's are region encoded.
