Just don't upgrade the firmware to 5.50 if you want homebrew anytime soon. They've already patched the exploit (and it hasn't even come out yet... HEN got delayed, it might be another week until release).

Yeah I figured, but I went ahead and got the latest update for it anyway. (that start-off firmware was only like 4.-something or other) Homebrew would be nice sure, but as I said it's kind of an extra for me, as I'm going to have my hands full playing the multitude of JP games I have my eyes on. (and that's after I'm done with Crisis Core) I realize it might be some time before they hack the 5.50 update, but I'll be playing these PSP games for a while until then.

Well you clearly stated that the main reason you bought a PSP is to play games so the cw is really a plus for you. The video format is not a big problem i know a very good program that make very good conversions and fast.

I never had a problem so far and the PSP screen is made it so you can hardly see mpeg compressions

I'm sure people in the Middle East, Africa and Oceania region do not know English that well according to you.

Yeah, I made the Pandora Battery myself. Prying the cover open was a pain, but other than that, the procedure (cutting one trace on the circuit board) was simple.

Probably because English is the informal universal language of international business and online worldwide social communication.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, and there he was claiming that :-

"Even most Europeans don't speak English outside of England. Much less "the entire world"."

Edit: I'll stop this discussion now. Even though I feel you're very wrong, it's not as if anything I say will change your mind. I just want to say that you really should try to talk to more people from other countries. So you can be less ignorant of the world.

Ehm there is an even simplier answer to that question... it is a game distributed in England. You know... the country where the english language come from...

If you go in Spain you see the same thing written in Spanish, if you go in France you see the same thing written in French, if you go in Italy you see the same thing written in Italian. In any case it says "Europe" and not Italy France Spain and so on because the restriction only applies to Europe, but that doesn't mean the whole Europe gets the same package.

The only things that is always written in english is "Licensed for sale only in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Oceania." because this is an international statement, but that's the same as "made in". All the rest is translated.

Umm I don't think it says "Licensed for sale only in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Oceania." because this product is in English. It is available in these area regardless of their ability to speak English because of the DVD region code (the picture of the Globe with a 2 underneath it).

That's what i meant to say. Maybe i wasn't really clear.

If you take a game from Spain, Italy, France or Germany, you'll find out that for the most part they are translated in the local language, however the statements related to international laws are always in english. But that's certainly not because the locals are fluent english speakers, those parts are not meant to be understood by the mass, but you can bet the part where it says "for personal use only" IS translated, as well as the manual and the game script itself.

International version (left), korean version (right). Do you think the international version was release specifically for England and North America?

It certainly isn't released for Europe. My best guess is that it's for the Asian market, where there are several countries where english is very well known (Singapore and Hong Kong above all)

As mentioned by Jan-poo before, business dealings involving more than one country are almost always conducted in English. International trade laws are written in English. So yes, and "International" version of a game would have English labels. Regardless of their distribution. English is the universal language in the BUSINESS world. Whereas a "Korean" version involves just one country. So of course it's in Korean.

However, the business world is not even remotely related to the normal world of game players. And you just can't equate them.

Generally, you never want to update PSP official firmware. It's mostly all anti-HB patches and rarely if ever does it give you any kind of new features.

Don't know if this was ever brought up in the thread yet. There are alot of "Undub" versions of games floating around on the net.
Essentially, its the english game hacked to have the japanese voices instead of the english ones. Sometimes it'll feel a little funny when the localization has changed some lines around, as the text onscreen will be completely different from what you hear the characters saying.

You have to have a hacked PSP though, as you're basically running a backup/pirated copy, and even if you do own the game, its still kind of in the grey area. Unless you own both versions of the game, you'd be kind of playing a backup + half pirated game cause of the language files from the other version.

(Hope I didn't break any rules, just throwing the information out there.)

About Undub's - No, I don't think we can post any links to them here. They definetly fall under piracy.

That being said, if you don't mind the fact that you would be pirating, undub versions of old PSX one Jrpg's that are notorious for horrible dubs ( Grandia, Xenogears ) are out there and work.
