    I am in Tokyo, PSPs are everywhere, some used for about 150 - what am I looking for to be able to hack? Also - any suggestions on where to go to get games, preloaded memory sticks or the like?

    Well for starters, you'll need a PSP that is firmware 3.03 or lower ;)

    If by games you mean ISO's don't bother, It's against rules.
    Also if you live in USA Used PSP's are cheaper here.
    Also don't buy memory sticks from eBay they are likely to be fake.

    to make things easier 2.80 or lower. 3.03 isn't really enjoyable, having to buy something to downgrade it is an ass.

    Think about it this way,
    If you buy a cool white/blue/silver any other color besides black PSP in japan. It bricks, You cannot do the walmart trick

    However, in Japan, the heartland of Sony. I would assume their PSP's would be above 3.03 for sure. If you wanted to buy a used, I'm sure it would be nearly the same as it is over there and here.

    agianst who's rules? your allowed to talk about ISOs in this forum, how to rip em, how to put em on the PSP. your just not allowed to link to where to download them.

    Just look for a psp 2.71 and lower if you dont got a unpatched GTA:LCS and if you do got one you look for one 3.03 and lower just make sure it aint 3.30 by mistake

    the way i see it, if you're in Tokyo now, you should be out playing pachinko, fondling geishas and maybe just maybe trying out the AMAZING arcades that are there. ever hear of rumbling hearts? go find it, soak in the society and if you need to get a psp, find the most extremly awesome looking one and if its over 2.81, whatever, take it apart and put the pieces on your original. now get out there and chase some tail!
    I can't stop coming!
