Hey guys and girls I want some advice on buying on buying a new PSP Slim. I've had my original one for over 2 years now and to be honest I lost complete interest on it, only use it as an mp3 player. The release of the new slim model though made want to buy a new one solely on the fact that it has a better D-Pad (huge fighting games fan ).
For a while I've been considering buying the Final Fantasy VII (Limited Edition) "pack", though considering that you only get 3 things with it (PSP, charger, game) as opposed to the value packs you get in the US or Japan its pathetic and costs £145/$285. Europe doesn't get much love from game companies but Sony really takes the biscuit!
Well anway I thought instead of wallowing in self pitty I'd just import a value pack from the US or Japan since the rates are good for the moment. Whilst looking at some sites I came across the new PSP 1-SEG value pack, which is released on the 17 of this month and contains a blue PSP, TV tuner, 1 Gb card and cables.
Before I buy one though I want some advice:
1) Will the custom firmware work on a Japanese PSP?
2) I havent kept up with the PSP homebrew scene for a while now, does the Neo-Geo emu work on the slim?
3)Anyone know if the tuner works outside Japan?
The only reason I'm buying a new psp is because the emulators, couldnt care less about the games on it (even the new FF). Also if anyone knows a good site thats ships to Europe would be appreciated, since Sony has barred almost everyone from shipping their consoles to the UK . Any advice appreciated :)
