    It wont work. It will give you an error.

    This makes me tend to believe the region coding is in the firmware :)

    Really? I would have never figured that out. J/K! Yeah, t is in the frimware, thats wut tells it not to run a Movie from a different region. And at pspupdates.com, they said the US 2.0 is set for the 27th. Does any1 know if $ony has announced the SURE release date for 2.0 US?

    That's just a rumor I have going around. The region coding could be hardset in the unit and not on the firmware.

    sorry for this stupid question, but im new to all of this.
    I imported my PSP from japan, so does that mean I'll have to get the Jap version of the update? (and just change it to english langauge)- or get the US version?

    I'm guessing Japanese version - ofcourse since I have a jap PSP, but I just want to be on the safe side and not mess it up.

    That is correct! You can only install the JAP update. The US update would fail.

    Not that DUMBASS! He meant the region coding being in the firmwarwe might be a rumor.

    ACtually, now that I think of it, the UMD drive could have the ability to check region coding from the movie UMDs. Like the encryption on the UMD movies have a region encryption and the drive detects if its the correct one or not. But here's the thign! Why would $ony want to disallow us t import movies? Yet, we can play imported games?
