UMD Movie region question
Is the region code part of the hardware or the firmware? I wonder if it will ever be possible to watch region 1 movies on my jap psp...
No you can't japanese movies are region 2
he knows that he can't, he is asking if it may be possible in the future. give it time, im sure psp will be a pda in a few months.
So Japanese PSPs definetly region 2? I have some people saying a Japanese PSP won't play region 2 (European) UMDS as its region 1, and some people saying it will :| Seriously thinking about importing one (To the UK)
PSP JAPANESE = REGION 2
PSP USA = REGION 1
PSP EUROPE = REGION 2
UMD MOVIES USA = REGION 1 (NOT COMPATIBLE WITH JAP/EURO PSP)
UMD MOVIES EURO = REGION 2 (COMPATIBLE WITH JAP/EURO PSP (i think))
UMD MOVIES JAP = REGION 2 (COMPATIBLE WITH JAP/EURO PSP (i think))
That is what DVDs are like so I presume that is the way for UMDs
Is there any homebrew-programs that lets you play European UMD on a American PSP ?
Is it like it reads the regioncode at the start of the disc? Have anyone tried to swap disc while loading movie ?
It is possible, just flash the Firmware 2.0 us on your jap PSP, it works perfect, i have a us psp with 1.50 jap firmware, now it plays the european movies :-)
I have tried that on my JAP PSP and it did nothing. Still cant play US movies. Can play Australian movies though.
PSP movie regions cannot be cracked as of now.
I just know that the games do not have any region coding on them...even if it says it does. Playing TOCA 2 Region 2 on a US PSP and Bleach on US PSP.
Anyway, you could always rip it and remove region coding and put on your MS =P
