    Question PSP regioning question

    Hello my fellow psp hackers, how are we all??

    Ok so just a few questions on the above subject.

    First of all, does regioning exist with the psp?? With the pricipal regions (NTSC and PAL)

    I bought my psp in New Zealand, and being that as it is, the psp would be PAL, now lets say i want to download a PSX game, to play on my hacked psp, does it matter if I download a PAL region game or a NTSC region game? This may seem like a stupid question to some, but it is one that just popped into my head, as I dont want to download gigs worth of games (such as FF ones) and then realise I wasted quite a lot of time, and have to start again.

    And seeing that i have a hacked psp, does that liberate region restrictions or does hacking your psp not change anything in that regard??

    Anyway if someone could answer these quick questions for me it would be very much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Ironfist

    U can play the games regardless of their region on any psp. In other words, region of the game doesn't matter.

    Ok sweet, thats good to know, strange though, why would regioning exist for psp's then? Or is there only regioning for psx games for example? And not psp specific games?

    Thanks for the reply anyways

    psp regioning is for video/music UMDs

    and the look of the XMB
    japs XMB has a TV icon for use with the seg1 tv adapter

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    The PS3 is the same way as the PSP, the games are region free.

    You can I think reregion your PSP via Pandora + MMS, but I heard that it is not such a good thing to do.

    Also, if you have CFW, you can select a "fake region" in the recovery menu.

    If you look up a couple of posts to iamafreaks response, you will see that region of the game doesn't matter, hacked or not

    EDIT: Sorry dude, if you were meaning with the music and video umds and not games..........if thats the case then just ignore my reply and have a good day
