    Thinking of buying a Jap PSP. I have been reading that firmware 1.50 is the best as this enables Homebrew. What is Homebrew?
    Also can anyone recommend any Jap sites to buy from?
    Thanks In Advance :)

    Nope, once you upgrade you are stuck with it, that is why original v1.0 JPN PSPs are selling for more than PSPs with newer firmware.

    Load times for one, apparently the load times are shortened no end. BIG bonus!
