Default Is the psp region coded?

I searched the net for quite a while, and it seems that most say it is, but only for movies. But I have found sufficient evidence to show that I may be wrong. For instance, Sony's say on the subject went from "No region coding" to "No comment". The big problem is that I can't afford an American psp, but on places such as ebay, you can find Japanese ones for $180 for the full set, and most also come with a game. If anyone knows anything, it'd be great to share.

As far as I know. The US version is region coded for everything and the Japanese version is not. So if you picked up a Japanese PSP then you can play games all over the world. If you pick up one from the US, your screwed in the importation of games.

US = Coded
Japan = Not coded

Yeah, its region coded. That's why sites like IGN and stuff have been warning people from importing a PSP. Cuz American games aren't gonna work on it, until a, lol, boot disk comes out for it. -_-

Well thanks... although we now have another group evenly divided... which doesn't exactly clear much up.

i say support the kamikazee japs...they need your help more than the american super conglomerates.. plus you probably prefer being able to play games from all over the world dont ya? and the boot versions of games usually come out within a month or so after the actual gets released in the states.

http://psp.ign.com/articles/593/593861p1.html

The artical above says that a US UMD can be played on a Japanese PSP. It says nothing about the movies or if the US version can play Japanese UMDs.

At least this has been tested so that we know that the Japanese one is region free so far.

This raises a new question entirely: Is it worth saving 70-odd dollars, but possibly giving up one of three functions? Granted, one buys the psp for games, but things like Advent Children are not easily passed up.
