It's not as bad as it looks. I'm sure there's plenty video game stores in Italy, at least some of them should be able to repair your psp. And seeing psp having the same construction for the whole word you don't have to worry about them not having spare parts.
i hope so... thanks for all the answers you gave me!
yes, they give me a warranty, except on a psp with dead pixels on its screen. that's my worry, because many psp users had that problem...
You shouldn't have any problem now. My jap psp came with firmware 1.5 as default, meaning it wasn't the first batch out of the factory. The problem with dead pixels was mainly in the early stage of production (I would say november-january), with psp getting firmware 1.0 as default.
