The thing with the psp is that it plays games from all regions , but movies only for a particular region. So a jap psp for instance could play all games but only movies for the jap region. Similarly the US psp would play all games but only movies for the US region.

So in all probability the shopkeeper might have bought a few jap psps and is getting the movies for them only from the US or something like that. which is why he would say that it plays only games and not movies.

i bought a logitech casing-costs around 3500.guess there are cheaper ones but this one is a good quality case and,more importantly,was the only one available with the dealer at that time!!!
i bought the colin mcrae rally 2005-cost 2400 bucks.nfs underground 2 is also a good one.no idea about the latest games available

Guys visited a shop where the PSP was priced at 19.9k with 1 year warranty and it is a value pack. Now did not check the grey price in person but had a talk over the phone that the value pack is for 11k and the std pack is for 10k grey. Didnt bargain.....will meet and post the final price next week.

As per the games...there are only a few good ones in india....in hyd whr i am.

BTW now the value pack comes with some Soccer game and no spiderman 2 movie!!! Y aint the movie there, i thought it was supposed to be there!!! Now that dissapointed me :(

Guys I was propbably the first PSP owner in india and after which i bought 3 more PSPs the white 1 coz its 2 sexy and the US one coz i wanted 1 for another region and a Black japanese one as i broke my first one and even own the ps1 and ps2 so being a major Playstation Freak its time i get some things right here.
1.Each and every PSP have the same functions.
2.Games from any region can be played on any PSP.
3.Movies can only be played on PSPs in the particular region.
4.Yes pirated games are available for the PSPs and can be procured from any Peer - To - Peer softwares and from torrent sites but can only run till firmware version 1.5.
5.PSPs have Created Programs, Application and Games which are known as homebrews but can only run till firmware version 2.6.
6.The latest verion of firmware out for PSP which just came out is Version 2.7.which includes Flash and RSS feeds for the internet browser and WMA support under the Music section.
8.The PSP does have a virus known as PSP Brick which can brick your PSP which as the name suggests spoil PSP for doing anything and well if the PSP does get the virus then u can use it as a brick.
9.There are various magazines which are made for the PSP which can be seen on the PSP.
If anyone needs anyother information on it then just ask

Ahah!! How could I have not seen this thread?? I've been the owner of all the PS's starting from the Playstation one to the Playstation 3. Latest acquisition is PSP. Black edition. I bought the high end pack, which came with 1 gb card and f1 '06. Bought off 4 more games and one movie UMD. I really don't mind paying 1500 per game or 2000 per movie UMD. Its cheaper compared to the PS/PS2/PS3 games. And I'm also happy it cannot be pirated. I've been a original game buyer ever since the start. I won't downgrade ever. I'm happy with my f/w.

^ Do try Ridge Racer 2, and Need for Speed MW 5-1-0. Ridge Racer 2 is one of the best games to play if you're a lover of 'drifting'.

Well it doesnt come with tuner cars where you can customize it like NFS MW.. But I do like it. MW is little harder, the cops are too strict in the game lol. More strict than the PS2 MW.

I'd rank:
1) Ridge Racer 2
2) NFS MW 5-1-0
tie) Burnout Dominator
3) WRC
4) MotoGP
