    So i understand the whole 1.51 and up cant run homemade apps. My question is, do the stores in North America carry PSPs with 1.51 and 1.52 FW installed? Or just 1.5 and then you have to manually upgrade to 1.51 or 52 (which, as i understand isnt a good idea if u want to run an emulator)? Or is it just chance, and you could get any of those versions?

    You really picked a wrong time to buy a psp. If you ask me, The best way to know if the psp you are about to buy is:

    Look between the top right side of the barcode and he 120V text. If you see nothing in between, or an A, you are good to go! But if you see a B or a C, Do not buy it.

    edit: I thought Sony ships the same psp's to North America. There are still v1.5 psp for sale at stores in Canada, I think it's the same in the states.

    how'd people get 1.5 in the states? My friend and his brother who just got PSP (here in Canada) about 2 weeks ago both got v1.5 from a Toys R Us

    did they do a recall of all the 1.5s?

    All the ones being shiped at the moment have 1.52 but some stores like my local target still have some 1.5 left. You can check in the store with this

    Like I said in another thread. I went to Target like a week ago and they still had v1.5 PSPs. They had them in a glass case so I could see the sides of the boxes without bothering any employees. Then again, I live in rural Indiana. The tech-savy demographic the PSP is aimed at isn't exactly the majority here.

    Yes, the newest PSPs are probably shipped with 1.52. No, the 1.5 PSPs were not recalled. If you find a store like the Target I mentioned that still has their initial launch shipment then you can still get a 1.5 in a store. If you do get a 1.51/1.52 then wait til they crack 2.0 and then upgrade.
