D'oh, thought the thread said PS3.Bad_Boy said:rofl...thats funny.
you gotta be one dumb fool to beleive the psp aint coming till 2006, IMO.
The XMB (Cross Media Bar, the name for the UI) supports six or so languages out of the box. Besides region coding for UMD movies and music (but not games), the only difference between the Japanese PSP and the North American PSP is the default XMB language setting. You can just set it to English and all will be well.Blauman said:I would have imported one but is everything going to be Japanese when teh US games start coming out. I know the games themselves wont but the UI is in Japanese right? or can you change the UI language?
highly doubt it. like i said above, about a month or so away we will have the NA psp, in march.FishHead said:edit: PSP should be coming out in rougly 3-4 months IMO, maybe even 2.
That's only true depending on the game. Some import games have practically no Japanese in them; action games especially. I've imported Biohazard (Resident Evil) games for several years now and they all had more English than Japanese. Racing games typically have more English than Japanese as well.Bad_Boy said:the japanese games will have mostly japanese words. the american games will have american words.and you cant change it as far as i know, you can just change the language of the home menu screen, not the game.
Is there even a UDM disk writer on the market? I don't think Sony will sell them as blanks (It's their format, and I doubt that they want to shoot themselves in the foot by giving us means of piracy from their own hands).Emret said:Will we be able to record our own udm discs?
I'll look around b/c I can't remember right now. They also have Samsung signed on to make PSP LCD's and the test I saw compared a Sharp model to the Samsung and it wasn't pretty.Terpfen said:I don't see why they would change screens. Sharp would be pretty damned angry to lose out on that market (Sharp currently makes the PSP's LCD.) The only problem Sony's having with the PSP is manufacturing the GPU, not the LCD.
Where'd you hear this?

The only real problem you'll face with Japanese is the specialty games or RPGs. I imported Shenmue for the experience of the atmosphere and pure dialogue (The Japanese voice acting sounded 100X better than the English dubbed version), but couldn't read a word of it except for the title.
I did not say all.the japanese games will have mostly japanese words.
For the most part, games you might want to import (games that will be popular here) are either mostly, or all English. Obscure little games (dating sims, etc) and RPGs will be all Japanese.Bad_Boy said:like i said...

Eh, figures. I was excited that Sharp had made the LCD screens, and what does Sony do? Switch.brentsg said:
UMD, not UDM. And no, you won't. There's a reason why the PSP uses the Memory Stick Pro Duo.Emret said:Will we be able to record our own udm discs?
I believe that there was a comparison video at one time but I can't find it. I wouldn't be surprised if those were different since the hues tend to differ. The Samsung seemed to have a blue push in that pic.Bad_Boy said:Those are just sample shots for the LCD screens, it has nothing to do with whatever these shots are taken from an actual PSP or not, if they were taken from psp's we dont even know if it was different brightness levels. No one knows for sure yet.
