View Full Version : PSP multi region for films?

Can I make a PSP 'multi region' for UMD films?

No, but Europe and Japan share the same region for films. I've played a UK UMD on a Japanese PSP without any problems, but it wouldn't work on a US PSP.
The PSP has its own region code system:
Region 1 - America, Canada, Mexico
Region 2 - Europe and Japan
Region 3 - Asia
I don't think it's possible to get a PSP to play UMD films from another region. Games are region-free but the movies are locked to one particular region

feared as much :( but at least Japan and Uk are the same.

Japanese UMDs are about £25 to import though :?~:-?~:???: They're really expensive compared to how much games cost over there. You don't hear this very often, but after postage and possible customs charges, it is normally cheaper to buy British films :o~:-o~:eek:
Of course, the American UMDs are about half the price of what they cost over here :roll: I think some import sites sell them for about £10 including delivery and customs :roll:

Am I right in thinking that the games are region free?

Yes they are

Quick note, I think you'll find that the Jap PSPs are region free on the movie side too. I've seen them running US UMD films as well as UK and Jap releases. This might get fixed with a later flash update but for the time being seems to still be true.
