    Hi,

    Probably a simple question to answer but i am going to States in about 4 weeks, am i able to buy games and movies in the states that will work on my UK PSP ?

    I have never been sure if they will work or not and read mixed reports on it too ?

    Can anyone help ?

    Cheers

    Games will work as the psp games are not region locked. However, US UMD movies will not work on a UK PSP, as they use the same region coding as DVD's (so US region 1, Europe region 2, etc)

    Cheers for the reply, excellent news, hopefully can pick a few games up for the PSP, didn't realise that about movies though i suppose it makes sense with region code but i thought it may be different with UMD's.

    Cheers

    I've got a US PSP and it plays games from anywhere. As far as I can tell the opposite applies - you should be able to play US games on your UK machine.

    With regards to movies, I've bought one from the US which obviously works fine. It's supposed to be region locked for movies, but the UK copy of Spiderman 2 given away for free by Sony works perfectly. I don't know whether or not this applies to all UK films though . . .
