General Comments
I bought the Sony PSP - Playstation Portable when I was in Hong Kong and haven't been able to put it down since. In the value pack box, you get the PSP, headphones, remote control, memory stick, manual, case, wrist strap and charger. I can say that the battery lasts around 7hrs on a full charge, if you are playing games, but of course the battery discharges faster if you are playing videos. I have also downloaded a few mp3s onto the memory stick and have played them with no problem. I have yet to try a converted DVD, but will in the near future. The games are superb and Ridge Racers has brilliant graphics. Not to mention the fantastic screen, which is clear and large. However, there are some defects with my model. The "L" button sometimes gets stuck if I push it hard and also, there is one dust bubble under the screen, although I really had to look for that. All in all, a great piece of machine for a very reasonable price, considering the features. The PSP has a lot of potential, but it depends if anyone will experiment with it. Compared with the DS, the sales war will be close, but I think that the PSP might just edge it with its functionality and design.

Hi there paven, the PSP you should receive is a Japanese version. All the games bought in UK are compatible as they are region free. As for the movies, I believe that both countries are of region 2, so the movies should work. And for the MP3s you download onto your memory stick, they will definitely work!

Cool, I'm glad your enjoying your PSP and Japan. Laugh out loud, I can remember going to Japan as a kid. It was really cool, but at least it's snowing here in London! Thanks for replying and enjoy!!

Hi jamster1432, thanks for taking the time to read my review!!
<br>The Sony PSP that I bought when I was in Hong Kong had actually been imported in from Japan. I have had no problems with playing games so far. According to reports, the PSP is region free with games, meaning that you will be able to play games from anywhere in the world.
<br>
<br>However, if you want to purchase movies to watch on your PSP, they are region locked. But, Japan and UK have the same region, which means you can play movies from Japan and UK on a Japanese PSP.
<br>
<br>Hope this helps, enjoy your trip to Japan and your PSP :)
<br>Jonno
