I'm still not seeing how practical it is to buy a PSP. Theres a lot you can do with it, but newer games are also coming out with firmware patches (or so I've heard), which means Sony is trying to stay one step ahead of the hackers. So really, to play new games AND play ROMs, Divx, etc, you need 2 PSPs... which is about $500 worth. It's just not worth it, unless you're dead set on not playing PSP software.
From what I remember, you can still play "images" of the games that require an update on 1.50 and 1.51 firmwares, as people found some way to jump over the upgrade data by patching the "images". Which means you can play any "image" you want, but no new original game anymore.
NOW IS TIME TO THE 68000 Z80 AND SH-2 HEART ON FIRE !!
