General Information

When was the original PSP released in North America?
The official North American release date is March 24th, 2005.

What is the price of the PSP?

Highlight the desired image and press 'X' Press Triangle, and select the 'Set as Wallpaper' icon (the second icon from the left on the top row). Then proceed through the prompts.

Where can I get the current Firmware Update?
The update may be downloaded via any wireless internet connection (make sure your Wi-Fi switch is enabled)*. Alternatively, you can download the update via the PSP Website and put it into the 'GAMES\UPDATE' folder on your PSP*.
*To install the update you must have your PSP's battery charged to the appropriate level.

What type of video formats does a psp support?
The PSP system supports the following video and movie file formats:
MPEG-4 Simple Profile (AAC)
H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Main Profile (CABC)(AAC) and Baseline Profile (AAC)
MP4
MPEG-4 Simple Profile (AAC)
H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Main Profile (CABC)(AAC) and Baseline Profile (AAC)
AVI
Motion JPEG (Linear PCM)

PSP region code:
  • PSP-1000-Japan
  • PSP-1001-US/North America
  • PSP-1002-Austrila/New Zealand
  • PSP-1003-UK
  • PSP-1004-Europe
  • PSP-1005-Korea
  • PSP-1006-Hong Kong/Singapore
  • PSP-1007-Taiwan
  • PSP-1008-Russia
  • PSP-1009-China


What PSP model do I have?

PSP-100X This is the first PSP model the Phat

PSP-200X This is the second model the PSP Slim

PSP-300X This is the third and most recent model also known as the PSP Brite




Should I get a Sony PSP or a Nintendo DS? That's a personal decision you need to make for yourself. The PSP offers better graphics and a superior multimedia experience. But the DS offers two displays and a unique touch-screen gameplay experience. We recommend taking a look at the game libraries for both platforms to see which system has more games that you'll enjoy playing.

How long will the battery last before I need to recharge? The PSP battery generally lasts for three to six hours while playing games and three to five hours while playing video.
What are the differences between the original PSP (PSP-1000) and the new slim PSP (PSP-2000)? The new PSP is 20 percent thinner and 33 percent lighter than the original. Internal system memory has increased from 32MB to 64MB, which helps speed up game load times considerably. The new system also has a new video-output port that can you can use to connect the PSP to a TV if you have the appropriate AV cable.

What are the differences between the PSP-2000 and the PSP-3000? The PSP-3000 is the same size as the PSP-2000, but it has a built-in microphone and an upgraded LCD screen that features a wider color range and improved response time that helps reduce on-screen ghosting. The video-out also supports output to older interlaced displays.

Can I trade in my old PSP for a new one? Sorry, Sony doesn't offer any kind of PSP trade-in program at this time.

Can you tell me what PSP accessories work with the original (PSP-1000 series) and which ones work with the slim (PSP-2000 series)? Here's a peripheral compatibility list from Sony:

1000-Series Only
  • Headphones with Remote Control (white/black) (PSP-140)
  • Battery Charger (PSP-191)
  • PSP® Traveler Case
2000-Series Only

"Hardmodding" or "Pandorizing" a Battery - A method in which you physically open a PSP battery up and cut/solder a certain pin in order to place the battery into Pandora or Service Mode. Not all PSP batteries are supported, and some batteries can be bought that are already modified.
