Hi guys!

Hope you can help me out with this question. Are games region encoded just like DVD's? I hope not, 'cause PSP games are much cheaper across the border than in my own country.

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Some games are, such as Midnight Club 3:DUB Edition. And more games coming out will be, you just have to research before you buy one.

Hello and welcome.

Before I read Constantines posting I would have put my hand on my heart and said no games are not regionally coded :shock:


Constantine... can you be sure on your posting because this is news to me :?:

Thanks for the image and for your help, Constantine!

One of the reason I asked the question is that I could not find any region specific information in any online shop for any PSP game.

It would be nice if someone could point out a site of webpage that does give this information... :roll:

In the meantime I will keep looking and post my results if I find any useful information.

I have no clue what website you would be looking for, but I found that clip in a magazine and I scanned it to prove to Juggler.

This means that Sony has gone back on their word, that all games will be region free.

I got it from the newest Game Informer magazine, which is rated #1. Not that ratings are everything, but that would be a major mistake.
