PSP Price in Malaysia

Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) Value Pack
Some were asking about the Sony Playstation Portable(PSP) price in Malaysia. I don’t have the info in hands, so I ask for them in local newsgroup.

Here is Mark Ng‘s reply:

Yep, both US and Japanese versions are available. Japanese version costs around RM1000 or less. The US one is about USD$200 more(RM1200+).

Some shops are even carrying UMD Video. Most of them are Region 1.

Avalaible in Imbi Plaza, Sungei Wang, 1 Utama, MidValley Megamall and lots more.

My two cents

Seems like PSP is not as expensive as I thought. Check out PSP hacks for more things you can do with a PSP.

Update: PSP is more affordable nowadays, which is under RM1000.

    PSP is cheaper from importer then getting it from Sony Malaysia. Couple of months ago, I was in a casual meeting with a local game distributor in charge of some PSP titles under their main brand company, the person said that Sony Malaysia will officially launch PSP somewhere in the middle of this year and with expected price of 1.6k.

    Kinda overprice…besides, everybody knows that even Playstation2 are much more expensive in Sony Wings then normal shops.

    A local store at Malacca sell at RM1090. Whereas both XBOX and PS2 is selling at RM799. I think the price is reasonable now.

    The new disc format – UMD – key mission is to prevent imitation. But how long can it stands to be original, no one can tell :)

    Hi guys/gals,

    I’m new here, just found out this blog through the search engine. Because I’m looking for the price of PSP in Malaysia. I’m in UK now and UK will release the PSP in Sept 1 cost abt 199 pound. I heard my friend said PSP already had in Malaysia and cost only RM200++…well I think he is cheating. Anyone know the exactly price?


  6. LcF June 29, 2005 at 9:31 am #

    Straffic: yup, your friend bluffed you. The PSP in Malaysia is around RM1000(145 pound) to RM1200(174 pound).

  9. jax July 21, 2005 at 7:03 pm #

    does anyone no how much a psp game costs in malaysia?

  10. chong August 9, 2005 at 4:44 pm #

    ok.. i’m local (Malaysian) and let me answer all of your questions here as I’m interested to buy one too but too expensive. PSP Value Pack price is around RM1299 here and the game price is ranging from RM250 to RM300.. Who could possibly afford to buy such an expensive game in Malaysia..? No pirated UMD disc yet in Malaysia. But now you can play PSP games via memory stick.. One thing in mind that you need a big capacity of memory stick in order to play the games. 1GB of memory stick from Sandisk costs around RM600 over. Expensive? Yes!! It is..

    Hi everybody!

    I have a friend going to Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

    What is the price for Sony PSP Value pack in Kuala Lumpur?

    Where exactly can he buy one in Kuala Lumpur?

  12. Chong August 23, 2005 at 9:46 pm #

    The cheapest PSP I can get in KL is RM1100.. I believe any shopping complex in KL you could manage to find one… even smaller complex also you could get it, like Selayang Mall, Ampang Park etc.. There are two version, US and Japan.. Japan version is cheaper than US…

  13. ks August 24, 2005 at 3:44 pm #

    The killer application for PSP is multi players wireless gaming. But you should also be careful when buying the UMD disc. You’ll not be able to detect the other player who are playing the same game in different country version (US/Japan)

  14. Derek Lim September 1, 2005 at 12:57 am #

    I’ve just visited Hong Kong and Taiwan. HK is selling about RM1000 plus for a Japanese version without game. Taiwan, on the other hand, you can get a PSP with a game (GOLF) for around RM900 plus. Much cheaper compare around the region. Seems like all electronic goods are prised reasonably there.

  15. Leiv September 2, 2005 at 10:01 pm #

    I just returned from KL, and the price of a value Pack in Sungei Wang was 700 MYR.

  16. chong September 3, 2005 at 12:34 pm #

    I can’t believe that the price is dropped so tremendously.. Any idea what’s the current price of 1GB memory stick from Sandisk?

  17. ks September 3, 2005 at 8:40 pm #

    MYR 700 for value pack? Which store???

  18. Leiv September 3, 2005 at 10:15 pm #

    I cannot remeber the store, but in fact I asked 2 stores both said same price MYR 700. If you are in KL will be easy to find

  19. chong September 4, 2005 at 5:40 pm #

    Went to Sg Wang just now.. Could you pls tell me which store that is selling PSP for RM700 for value pack? The RM700 is only includes charger and the device. The value pack around Sg Wang is about RM830 and 1gb of memory stick is RM450.. And there is one store saying that their PSP is version 1.0… means 1st batch.. hmm..

  20. chong September 6, 2005 at 12:07 am #

    Bought the PSP for my sis from Sg Wang.. Cost RM1330.. It includes one Value Pack, 1GB memory stick, one UMD Demo Disc (to be used to boot certain games in ISO format).. I’m sure the RM700 one is not a value pack..

  21. fLaMe September 7, 2005 at 4:38 pm #

    Guys can u pls help me?? Are there imitation games for PSP in Malaysia yet? Im staying in KL area…. Pls tell me A.S.A.P.

  22. jason September 7, 2005 at 5:21 pm #

    hey….i have a psp too…..and its from singapore(PSP1006-K) but i bought it here….the value pack cost about RM1150….

  23. Knome September 8, 2005 at 2:16 am #

    Hi guys, im going to be in singapore at christmas time, any idea of what the price the psp will be? Cheers

  24. chong September 12, 2005 at 4:28 pm #

    RM1150 for a value pack?? Too expensive and you have been conned. As for imitation games, pls search it from the net and eventually you would find a way..

  25. ks September 12, 2005 at 5:29 pm #

    Could you share where to get the free games EASILY?

  26. chong September 12, 2005 at 5:46 pm #

    Hi ks… I really doubt where did you get your value pack for RM700.. Pls give me the location and the name of the store if it is true…

  27. ks September 12, 2005 at 5:59 pm #

    hi chong, it wasn’t me who got it at 700. i also want to know where to get that :) i never expect a free lunch. i usually pay for my food, haha…

  28. Knome September 13, 2005 at 2:59 am #

    Hi guys,

    As i asked before…

    im going to be in singapore at christmas time, any idea of what the price the psp will be?


  29. chong September 13, 2005 at 6:43 pm #

    Hello my friend… Christmas is still long way to go… How could anybody predict the price of PSP in another 3 months time. 3 months ago the price of PSP here was about RM1500.. Now is RM850.. I’ve read quite a lot of things about PSP and I found out that the price of RM850 in Sg Wang is consider quite reasonable comparing to Taiwan, Hong Kong and other asean countries. .. Why go to Singapore to buy? Let’s say you manage to buy one in Singapore for SGD350, here is about RM750… What if it’s faulty after playing it for less than a month? Ya, you can always go back to the shop in Singapore.. You save RM100 but you are taking a risk… Worth it?? Then do it… I got no interest in knowing the price in Singapore.. Unless it is less than SGD250… Possible?? Of course not…

  30. shelbybaby September 14, 2005 at 11:17 am #

    i’ve found this site EXTREMELY useful as i was shopping for a psp as a gift for a friend and i knew nuts about these sorta boy toys. the discussion here has absolutely given me a crash course on everything to do with psp purchasing. i just bought him one in 1Utama (this store beside TGV cinema) for the price of rm1199. its the new asia version (not japan or u.s) so its better in terms of dvd viewing etc or so the fella told me. its a value pack that comes with headset, pouch, device, charger, batt and 32mb card. i probably shud have gone to sg wang instead but that place gives me the creeps. so thank you all. i think he liked it a whole lot.

  31. straffic September 14, 2005 at 4:22 pm #

    Haha…Look like you guys all talk about PSP. My room mate bought the PSP and I borrow it to play for a week. Actually, we r now in UK. UK sold it at 179 pound value pack. No game included. He He bought the Ridge Racer cost him 34.99pound. Wow damn expensive to have this big toy. Well, it is nice to have it. The screen is big, bigger than Gameboy LOL, color absolutely fantastic very clear and vivid.
    Disadvantages:- only 32mb memory. So, if you want to watch movie you have to get 1GB memory and convert the file name to AVI.

    Anyway guys, how much it cost a UMD games in M’sia? UK look like very expensive to buy a UMD games. Err better buy PlayStation 2 much cheaper and have pirated games LOL…Of course i know PSP can bring u around to play it, but it is too expensive for me to buy. Maybe, wait until th price drop haha..

  32. johnny September 15, 2005 at 7:25 pm #

    Hi, I am from Malaysia.I would like to let everyone know about the current price for PSP in Sungai Wang.

    PSP JAPAN VERSION BASIC RM700 (firmware 1.51 and above)

    PSP GAMES RM 150 TO RM 200
    PSP UMD MOVIE RM 120 TO RM 160

    SANDISK 1 gb memory stick RM 380

    *only psp with firmware 1.50 and below can play emulator and games on memory stick.

  33. chong September 17, 2005 at 9:54 am #

    Just bought my PSP Japanese version 1.5 for RM880 (could get RM860 but stick RM450) and Sandisk 1GB stick for RM380 in Sg Wang.. This is my advise to all the Malaysian in KL.. Buy gadgets (including PSP / HP) only in Sg Wang or Low Yat and make comparison from every store around before buying it.. How could one staying in KL doesn’t know that 1 Utama’s gadgets are more expensive?? sigh…
    Straffic!!.. You said one game 34.99 is expensive?? Here the cheapest one is RM160… If one game here is RM34.99, I’d buy original games and would never play pirated.. I don’t earn much, just about RM1500… So one game takes me about 13% of my salary… This is what we call EXPENSIVE!!!.. One set of PSP (including 1GB stick) takes me about 85% of my salary.. This is what we call EXPENSIVE!!!.. sigh…

  34. Straffic September 17, 2005 at 5:04 pm #

    Wow Chong you bought PSP only RM880..some more include 1GB memory.That’s cheap in Malaysia. Here is like 179 POUND..and only 32mb memory. if u don’t convert of course here cheap lah. But, if i convert of course here EXPENSIVE lah dude. It is around RM1230++….and the game here is 34.99 pound so is around RM240++….get it….
    Yoh dude u at least earn some money from ur salary, me didn’t earn anything…i got to save in order to buy it…i think i will go back to M’sia buy rather than here…
    Anyway, have fun with the PSP…i’m almost finished the Ridge Racer game. Quite nice the racing game. Recommended!!

  35. Kenny September 18, 2005 at 3:11 pm #

    erh…i have a question here….i plan to buy a psp next month…and i was wondering if there’s dead pixel on the psp sold in malaysia? i won’t wanna spend my money on things that is not perfect…and is there anyway to get a cheaper 1G memory stick… coz my fren told me that he got it for 180++

  36. johnny September 18, 2005 at 10:55 pm #

    I suggest you but a new psp because sometimes dead pixel can cause a lot of problem when playing games.
    So far the cheapest 1gb sandisk memory stick pro duo I get is RM 365.

  37. Kenny September 19, 2005 at 12:38 am #

    thx Johnny.i got another question to ask…can i actually fit the whole dvd video in the memory stick pro duo? how big the file will be? izzit true that i can barely fit one dvd video only in the memory stick?

  38. LcF September 19, 2005 at 12:47 am #

    Kenny: since PSP support MP4, you can encode the DVD video into MP4 format (which is much smaller size) and store in memory stick.

  39. johnny September 19, 2005 at 11:40 am #

    Actually,the size of mp4 format depends on the video and audio quality.If the video and audio quality is best then you can not fit it in a 1gb memory stick.

  40. chong September 19, 2005 at 9:23 pm #

    Nothing is perfect… Ya.. my newly bought PSP got 3 dead pixels.. Some more the screen got few dots (not eraseable)… I can accept it if it doesn’t give me big problem…
    I recommend you all to use the PSP Video Express (free) to convert videos to PSP mp4 format… Use the google search engine and eventually you would manage to find it.. This program will let you know the size of the output video b4 you start converting it.. Look around in the net especially forum and you would find out a lot of answers…

  41. johnny September 19, 2005 at 9:53 pm #

    Chong,if your psp got dead pixel then go and exchange because most of the shop allow to exchange within 1 week of purchase.

  42. chong September 19, 2005 at 10:43 pm #

    According to the user manual (i downloaded it from the US site as mine is in Japanese language), the dead pixels are normal… Read the following extracted from the user manual..


    “LCD screens are made with highly precise technology, but in most cases, black spots may appear, or red, blue or green may remain on the screen. This is not a malfunction.”


  43. Kenny September 19, 2005 at 11:39 pm #

    erh…but didn’t u guys check whether got dead pixels or not during the time u purchase it ? To tell the truth i won’t accept even when it had only 1 dead pixel…some of u might hate me….but i’m one of those perfectionist…i can’t help it….sigh…

  44. chong September 20, 2005 at 11:03 am #

    I’m also particular about those things but when the user manual said it’s normal, means normal!!! Unless you want to be abnormal…
    Pray to god that no one or yourself would scratch your PSP otherwise you would not have a peaceful night because it’s not PERFECT anymore… Unless you buy a new one….
    Bear in mind.. Nothing is perfect…

  45. psp rocks September 20, 2005 at 4:51 pm #

    i’m using the australia version 2.0.i bought it for like 399 man.i didn’t know malaysia so cheap.but they say those shop change all the things inside the box 1.all i know is v 2.0 cannot store games inside the psp.but i can go online with 2.0.can anyone tell me whether i can store games inside and where do i get the program and games?

  46. chong September 20, 2005 at 11:37 pm #

    Currently you can’t do anything with v 2.0… You should have known this earlier on b4 buying if you wanted to play ‘free’ games…

  47. johnny September 21, 2005 at 12:17 am #

    I would to inform everyone about playing psp games on memory stick.Currently the best loader available is fastloader 0.7 which only support firmware 1.0 and 1.50.fastloader will let you play about 90% of psp games.(about 60 psp iso).However some psp iso size is more than 1 gb so better buy original psp games than buy a 2gb memory stick.
    Here is the list of games which iso more than 1gb:

    To know more about the psp iso, please email me at

  48. Kenny September 21, 2005 at 12:42 am #

    i know nothing is perfect… but don’t u think it’s a little not fair when u pay the same price as anybody else and what u get is not as good as what others got? both my frens have no dead pix on their psp and what makes me deserve to have one with dead pix ?

  49. chong September 21, 2005 at 1:17 am #

    Bear another thing in mind… Nothing is fair…

  50. chong September 21, 2005 at 1:24 am #

    Another alternative loader is dev hook… It doesn’t need an UMD disc present in the drive… I love dev hook more than fastloader… I’d play all my games using dev hook unless few of them using fastloader when the dev hook failed..
    I remember there have ripped version for Tiger Wood and MLB_USA where you can fit it into your 1GB stick.. As for Midnight Club, I’ve downloaded the rip kit but haven’t got the time to test it out…

  51. Ron September 21, 2005 at 2:25 am #

    hi guys…i’ve got a question in my mind that i have to make sure before i buy a psp , can anyone tell me wats the difference between US ver and JPN ver of psp y their price is so much diffrent? izzit true that JPN ver can only play japan games and US ver can only play US games? i’m confused

  52. manu September 21, 2005 at 3:01 am #

    hi guys i am living in australia and the current price of the psp here is about $397. i am planning to buy it on christmas could anybody tell me whats the price of the psp in malaysia and which version is better japanese or us in perfomance

  53. hisyam September 21, 2005 at 1:33 pm #

    psp in malaysia is alot more cheaper. around rm800, well not alot cheaper but still.
    “which version we can watch pirated movies or play pirated games.”
    please support original. don’t buy psp if u want to get warez games.

  54. ah beng September 21, 2005 at 5:45 pm #

    so from the price above, the firmware 1.5 is more most people are getting this to be able to play pirated (more like, downloaded) games via mem stick?

    i saw on another forum where you can downgrade it from 2.0 to 1.5. that means you can get the newer versions. other than firmware, are there any differences between them?

    also, which version is better (JAP, US, ASIA)? what are the pro/cons? im thinking of getting JAP because i like Jap products! ( i can have english as language on it?? )

  55. ah beng September 21, 2005 at 5:54 pm #

    dear mr.ron :)
    from what i know, the Jap,US, Asia can play any games (it is region-free) so you can play jap, english, games.
    only the dvd – movies are region locked. you can only play dvds from Jap, or US, or asia. much like real (original) dvds.
    but movies aren’t so great on psp, the main thing is games. so doesn’t mean its better to get your local PSP. you can watch downloaded movies on your mem stick anyway, which is free too (anime, porn, downloaded-cinema-quality-movies. yah yah)
    but im not sure on other features too. like warranty and language. someone need to tell us.

  56. johnny September 21, 2005 at 11:35 pm #

    japanese version psp can change it menu language to english and other language.regarding the downgrade firmware,I found out from the internet thaat it is fake and the current project has stop due to some reason.

  57. chong September 21, 2005 at 11:48 pm #

    All of the questions about PSP games, movie, converter, loaders, rip kits and other homebrews software were answered in

  58. LcF September 22, 2005 at 11:43 am #

    Dear all, please do not discuss about pirate game here.

  59. hisyam September 22, 2005 at 11:56 am #

    thanks LcF. im getting sick of people discussing pirated psp games.

  60. ah beng September 22, 2005 at 3:39 pm #

    ok, no piracy.
    i want to know which version most people are getting and why. (either new or old firmware) and also (JAP. US or ASIA).
    btw, would it be cheaper to get it overseas, like Hong kong or Japan? or where is cheaper?

  61. fLaMe September 22, 2005 at 5:08 pm #

    Can anyone tell me how to put videos in my PSP?

  62. PSP Australia September 22, 2005 at 5:41 pm #

    im in australia and wish to purchase psp from overseas…..what websites would you recommend to purchase online??? and what version???(Jap, Asia, Us) any websites in singapore that you know of?

  63. ah beng September 22, 2005 at 8:03 pm #

    i’m also in Austtralia and looking on the internet, i heard some ppl saying that their JAPAN and US psp is able to play australian dvds. that is a region 1 and 2 able to play region 4.
    im thinking of getting a JAP because, then it can play region 2 and 4.
    from what i hear, there isn’t much difference in all the versions apart from the region lock for movies. only hear some rumors saying JAP is better.
    i think if you want to watch movies often, get one according to where you purchase the movies.

  64. VK September 23, 2005 at 11:13 am #

    i say bullshit
    it’s either he got them illegally or its a scam.

  71. Jo September 29, 2005 at 5:10 pm #

    It doesn’t matter which region you get, in the end the PSP can be hacked to suit whatever you want. All it takes is a simple emulator and you can play classic Genisis games, or GameBoy games on your PSP, same thing with playing movies – like how you can crack your DVD drive to play any region.

    In the end it’s all the same hardware, save for the chip suppliers.

  72. Bill September 30, 2005 at 3:10 pm #

    For those who are living in Melbourne. There is a shop in the carlton are selling PSP set for AUD 340+. I’m going to go check it out tomorrow with my friend and will post details later. All you have to do is give EBgames the contact for that shop and they will beat the price that’s offered by the other shop. I say that’s pretty fair o.o-b I’ve been shopping around for months now to get my PSP *drools*

  94. squall October 15, 2005 at 4:18 pm #

    [edit: no pirate game discussion]
    …And anyone sure that online games are actually SUPPORTED here in Malaysia?do we have servers?if we do how come online games(e.g ff Xi) for ps2 doesn’t seem to be availale here?

  95. ms October 16, 2005 at 9:11 am #

    reply for “hey guys, i would like to know, that if u can play multiplayer games online using pirated psp games? ”

    To be honest, I doubt you can..but you can always try..
    you see,malaysian people tend to buy pirated games..that’s why they are not able to play online games for most of the PC games..just to name some: CS source, battlefield2, guild wars etc…Yes, I’m talking about the PC games..but i reckon it would probably be the same for PSP..pirated games = mostly no online features…so, it’s all about compromising…
    do you all know that malaysia and china are the countries pirating most softwares??
    If you dont believe, here’s the source..
    Buying stuff in malaysia are really risky, I can say..

  96. ms October 16, 2005 at 8:01 pm #

    reply for “And anyone sure that online games are actually SUPPORTED here in Malaysia?do we have servers?if we do how come online games(e.g ff Xi) for ps2 doesn’t seem to be availale here? ”

    they dont have servers mostly because there are no demands. for example, to play ff 11 online, first, you’ll need a non-pirated game, a network adapter, a 10 gb harddrive..and also you’ll need to pay every month..not many ppl in malaysia are willing to pay this much money to play it if there is no demand..there will be no servers..

  97. Hafiz October 16, 2005 at 8:41 pm #

    i think we cant play ff 11 online. Coz malaysian ISP not support it !

  98. Krawl October 24, 2005 at 8:55 pm #

    Hi guys, im in Melbourne right now,going back to Msia by early Dec. Been dying for a PSP, but i need to know the price. Unfortunately im feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information here. First of all, if you buy PSP value pack u get all that stuff that was listed before. what if you buy PSP (not value pack)? what will you get? Just PSP and charger?

    Secondly what is firmware? In Australia i heard its 2.0 and in Msia its 1.50. Whats the difference and what can each version do/cannot do? If i were to buy it back home, i would still end up buying games from Aussie so i need to know if i can still play Aussie sold UMD games.

    i dont care about movies cause i dont wanna watch on a crappy small screen so if anything i would probably load movies from the PC. Thirdly can i still play wireless with friends with different version PSP and firmware?

    Fourth is, i heard one of the versions(Jap/US) have better screen quality, is that true?

    Either way i would prefer to buy PSP in Aussie cause its guarenteed to be original(dont completely trust sungei wang people), but if the price in Msia is too good to be true then i would buy it back home. SaintAngelius, where exactly is that shop selling for AUD340? can give me the specific address and shop name? Either way the curent price here is AUD399 which is almost RM1200 for value pack (i think they only sell value pack here)

    if someone could pls take the time to answer all my questions it would really help me a lot to make my final decision. Than you guys!!!!

  99. Krawl October 25, 2005 at 12:10 pm #

    Oh and one more thing, the PSP’s sold in Aussie are PAL format. So besides Australia which other countries can i buy games from? Can i still play games bought in Msia using a PAL type PSP?

  100. Th3 z3d October 25, 2005 at 2:27 pm #

    i need to ask….. when buying a psp… does the made in ‘somewhere’ make a difference even if it is a japanese version? and.. whats the good things about the new firmware? PLEASE….

  103. DenSha OtaKu November 1, 2005 at 3:46 pm #

    hi all…after reading all of the forums…now i know that it is a headache to look for the right price for the PSP (esp in malaysia)….is it true the cheapest PSP price in malaysia is at sg wang/imbi ??….cause im thinkin of gettin one…..n im still confused to choose whether jap,us or asia ver??

  104. nicholas November 2, 2005 at 3:11 pm #

    get a us version will let u enjoy more choice of umd movie…coz most of the hollywood movie…blablabla…like spider man…resident evil…the hostage..war oh the world r in region 1…us version…if u like watching Po-Rn…or anime…get a jpn version…n it will b cheaper…for asia ver…u will get warranty from sony asia…coz asia oficial psp is asia version…my recommend is get jpn v..coz it’s cheaper than others….

  105. DenSha OtaKu November 3, 2005 at 1:24 am #

    thnx for the recommendation….i think i go for jap ver…im in a tight budget anyway….cant wait to get this year bonus…

    Hey everybody like I said before were can I buy a PSP in Singapore im currently over there can anyone please post were I can find a cheap one!!


  107. Tyco November 5, 2005 at 9:29 pm #

    Lucky Plaza in Orchard Rd has good prices. I bought for my son yesterday and they are asking S$250 (LOWEST) for console +charger alone + 33MB card. Many shops will ask S$300 or so and cannot bargain.

    The shop I bought from was on the right side (CK Tang side) along the corridor on the lower level. We kept asking for US version but the salesguy seems to know his stuff and said does not matter about version for games (true) but for movies, then there is region lock. The unit we got had firmware 1.51.

    Total cost of Value Pack + hard case + Media Manager USB cable was S$490 and I calculated that I saved at least 40% on Malaysian price. S$1.00 = RM2.30.

    Now back in KL realise one thing… should have got him a memory stick also. 33MB is meaningless! Can only put some songs and not even games. Hardware is definitely cheaper down there so buy as much as you can afford.

    I’m not a PSP fan myself but I can appreciate that it is an impressive device!

  108. zaim November 9, 2005 at 5:24 pm #

    I juz Heard that the psp is selling 4 RM600++ at sg wang plaza. Do u guys know how much it is in holiday plaza jb

  111. axillez November 15, 2005 at 8:21 pm #

    I have been reading all your replies and I am even more confused..
    I need to ask something..
    I found an offer on the internet for US$ 155.00 /unit from a shop in Indonesia!!!
    How can this be true??? It smells like a fraud to me!!
    If you dont believe me just take a look here:
    What do you think?

    this has no doubt been answered before but anyway. i’m living in the UK and travelling to KL next week. I would like to get a PSP at a good price but need 2 know a few things.

    Where 2 get it from?
    How much should I pay? Price in the UK is still ยฃ200 (about 1300 MYR)
    What type to get?
    Should the warranty be worldwide?
    What can I/can’t I buy/play on it from the UK if I buy in KL? this is the main thing – I don’t want to not be able to get anything for it when I get back home.

    Thanks very much

  129. mamboandrew November 28, 2005 at 9:22 pm #

    also, another question – sorry!

    If I have a UK? PSP can I play games/movies that i buy in malaysia?

  130. Ravi November 29, 2005 at 5:28 am #

    The psp games are region free so any game will work on any psp but the movies at the moment are region coded. Your warranty will only be valid in Malaysia. Good Luck. What abt prices guys what are the average game prices there like?

  131. Wilds November 29, 2005 at 1:10 pm #

  171. cslee January 20, 2006 at 11:35 am #

    Hi all, I think you guys should go to the Sony Style at The Curve and have a look of those PSP packages offered. To me the price quite reasonable. Range from 1299 to 1699, some with free games, some with free Zorro pack (which I think must have), some free 1g mem stick and value pack. Ceramic white is available now.

  172. cairel January 21, 2006 at 12:39 am #

    cslee everyone knows that things at sony style is damn xpensive. (emmm wonder if you work with them ahaks!!! :p)

    anyway i survey for a PSP at sungei wang today :-

    standard pack RM700
    value pack V 1.5 RM800/RM830/RM900
    MS Stick Pro 1GB RM300/RM320/sony style sold @ RM345
    D/load Games One for RM15/RM20
    A Disk contains 15 D/load games RM50

    A shop at level 4 offer me

    value pack V1.5(RM900) + 1GB MS Pro(RM320) + 3 Disc of Games “45 games” (RM120) + screen protactor for RM1350 i think its still xpensive but thats the only shop that sold a compilation of games :)

  173. cslee January 21, 2006 at 10:29 am #

    Cairel, if I work with Sony, I will get cheaper than that :P.

    Anyway, thanks for the info. In fact I am still searching for the best deal. I am looking for something like white PSP+1gb+free game (UMD)+software bundled+screen protector. will try to search in Sg. Wang.

    I think most of the games offered there are for 1.0 and 1.5 only right?

    What is the firmware version for the ceramic white PSP?

  174. eds January 21, 2006 at 11:34 am #

    hi ppl.
    wats the price difference between the ceramic white and the black psp?
    is the cecramic white better or just a different color?
    wat does the standard pack and value pack have?
    cairel. wat sort of games do they have in the disc of 15 games?
    are they the good games like gta and sims, or lousy ones?

  175. Nash January 21, 2006 at 9:50 pm #

    Hi there!
    I’m in Taiwan at the moment and I’m contemplating on buying a psp. Is the Taiwan version the same as the version found in South Africa?
    Please help!!
    See ya!

  176. cairel January 23, 2006 at 1:17 am #

    Just bought mine yesterday, wohoooo!!!! ahaks!!

    Paid RM1300 using credit card, ahaks!!! i got PSP value pack (Black) + 1GB MS pro (with pre install Pro Evolution Soccer 5 & Dead to Right) + screen protector + 1 game gear pocket + 1 13 in 1 game disc (codes armes/dead to right reckoning/harry porter & goblet of fire/kingdom of paradise/lumines/ madden NFL 06/medievel resurrection/mercury/namco museum/need for speed most wanted/smart bomb/spiderman2/toca racer driver 2)

    I think its the best deal i got. bought it at xbox store@ level 4 of sg want (walk towards Metrojaya of BB plaza)

    Only 1.5 & below can play the download games. So they still sell 2.0 & 2.5 version.

    Sametime i also bought one original UMD games for RM140.

    And I think white & black is just a colour different.

  177. TT January 26, 2006 at 12:10 am #

    Ok, I was in Malaysia last week, went into Sugai Wang, BB Plaza, Low Yat, etc. Best place to go is Sugai Wang, here are the indicative best prices from my scan around the shops – Standard console RM800, Value Pack RM900, Value Pack plus 1GB MS Pro Duo RM1150 (all prices based on firmware 1.5 black model only). Ceramic seems to be available only in firmware 2.5/2.6, prices are pretty much the same as the black. Happy shopping!

  183. FLC February 3, 2006 at 10:44 am #

    does anyone know if I got a deal , I bought a PSP ver 1.5 and a 2 giga memory stick.. for RM1200

  184. cslee February 6, 2006 at 9:07 am #

    Just be careful guys, make sure what you pay is what you get, unless you don’t mind, original parts come with higher price tag. some may offer you cheaper price, but they may give you non original parts like charger, batteries… or higher games price.

    I went to Sg Wang last Sat, full original Giga Pack from RM1030- 1150. Try if you can get cheaper price after the PS3 launched. ๐Ÿ˜›

  185. LcF February 6, 2006 at 11:37 am #

  188. LcF February 8, 2006 at 1:06 am #

    firmware 2.5 does NOT play download games.
    it is hard to get a PSP ver1.5 nowadays…

  189. FLC February 8, 2006 at 7:36 am #

    i heard a guy name fanjita already created the homebrew for firmware 2.5, it’s a matter of time when downloaded games can play on fw2.5

  190. Steve February 9, 2006 at 12:40 am #

    if i buy psp fw 2.5 later can modify to play downloaded games right?

  191. FLC February 9, 2006 at 8:05 am #

    they know how to hack 2.5 and 2.6 already, but loader will not come out so soon as fanjita said, he will take all his own sweet time to do it… anyway heard that the PSP2 gonna come with a microdrive…

  192. dumdeedo February 11, 2006 at 9:23 pm #

    Just a question, are most PSPs sold in malaysia JAP versions with sharp screens or US versions with samsung screens? anybody had any problems with dead pixels from the units bought from sungei wang so far?

    looking to buy… just curious… :) Thanks in advance! :)

  193. zero March 10, 2006 at 4:23 pm #

    i just bought a 1 gig memory stick which cost rm260.the dealer said there is original and pirated memory stick.i decide to buy the original sony 1.the pirated 1 around rm200(if you know how to negotiate with the shop).

  194. ks March 10, 2006 at 6:10 pm #

    hey zero, where did you get that original 1G MS?? that’s cheap!!

  195. zero March 11, 2006 at 11:12 am #

    i get it from the shop that i always purchased the psp should be the cheapest in shop is located at the main entrance level of sungei wang,in front of the entrance of parkson(not the entrance at the mobile phone teritory).The other entrance at the back side of plaza(where many game shops are located).The shop is in front of the men toilet.Sorry i forgot the name of tht shop but it is a corner shop.(‘_’).Beside tht,i think the price at low yat is not reliable after found out tht i can get a better price at offer me rm280 for sandisk 1 gig ms.(sandisk cannot be more expensive than sony original)

  196. zero March 11, 2006 at 11:20 am #

    NOTE:the price for virtua tennis:world tour has drop to RM130.

  199. Philip March 21, 2006 at 3:06 pm #

    I got an offer from Holiday Plaza (JB). PSP 1.5 (black) JAP version + 1 gig MS, 60 games= 6 cds + eloader = RM1.3k … What do you guys think? Worth the 1.3k?? Or are there cheaper deals out there at the moment?

    I’ll be checking prices at Sim Lim (sg) and Lucky Plaza (sg) tml.

  200. LcF March 21, 2006 at 10:54 pm #

    Philip: it is hard to find PSP 1.5, isn’t it?

  201. petrakhus3d March 22, 2006 at 11:51 am #

    good info here.
    i think should wait until the price drop. im planning to have one PSP.

  202. FLC March 22, 2006 at 1:06 pm #

    i think RM1.3 can get u the 2GB memory stick,… i bought mine in Kulai, johor

  203. Philip March 22, 2006 at 11:51 pm #

    Hey. LUCKY PLAZA (SG) IS CRAP! DUN EVER GO THERE!!! Bloody Ah Bengs wanna cheat money.

    I went Sim Lim today, the cheapest pricelist i found.
    PSP 1.5 (value pack) = $430
    2GIG MS = $176
    1 Game = $60 – $72
    USB cable = $45 (WTH?)

    The outlet i found outside SIm Lim Square (beside Sim Lim Tower)
    PSP 1.5 (value pack) = $439
    2 GIG MS= $170
    1 game = $60 – $72
    USB calbe = $10

    PRICES AT LUCKY PLAZA ARE ATTRACTIVE! BUT!! Be REALLY careful with what you choose. Not everything is real. damn it.

    I haven’t bought a PSP yet. Still thinking either i shld get it at holiday plaza (jb) or sg. Any comments? Oh ya, what are the things to check before purchasing one? I dun wish to get cheated.

    I’m looking for a PSP 1.5v (frm japan) original, with a 2 gig MS. budget under RM1200.


  204. FLC March 23, 2006 at 10:10 am #

    if u convert the price , it’s more expensive… and don;t bother about the accessories given in the value pack… pretty crap… u can use any headphone with it, the pouch ..ouch…not nice.. but most important thing must have the screen protector sticker…

    the PSP alone now around RM799 and 2 GB memory about RM400 but let me tell u, most memory stick out there are fake now… so i think no point buying orginal since u might got cheated… just get MS on the cheap and ask for warranty.

    I bought mine at RM1200 , PSP + the 2GB memory stick… and 1 UMD game RM90 (this UMD disk is for the purpose of booting, some loader needs it but now there’s a new loader out there no need UMD disk, I think devhook GL)

    forget about the CDs they are offering, you can download almost all the game they offer on the web… just make sure they install the Firmware 1.5, please check version before leaving , and ask them to install the latest fastloader, UMD emulator and devhook, other than that, u can learn more from internet, once u got your machine,… visit I’m in there with nickname FLC

    Another thing to note…. dead pixel or stuck pixel…. I got mine with 1 stuck pixel… according to the internet, still can accept, but more than 5 don;t accept… if the dead pixel happened to be in the middle, don;t accept , ask to change

  205. valeron March 24, 2006 at 9:11 pm #

    FLC….where did you buy yours?….curious…..i think it is a good deal…..thanks in advance….heh!!!

    im from india and will be in KL, malaysia in june, can someone please tell me where to buy from psp 1.5 black, 2gb mem, ******
    thanks in advance

  212. Sam May 3, 2006 at 2:07 am #

    well….I’m a malaysian but now i’m currently in USA to study.

    a value pack with 1GB memory disk with RM 800 is a bull shit.

    i bought my psp(value pack) cost $260 plus tax and it just have 32mb memory disk.i didn’t see before a pack that has 1GB memory in there before…dont lie. 1GB memory sold separately…

    when i bought this psp,it has a version of 2.0 and now is 2.6 since i have bought a new game and it will recommend to upgrade in order to play the game.

    btw a 1GB memory here cost around $60-80 depends where u buy it.i know the prize with drop sooner or later but i wont buy it now.too costly.btw i think 256 or 512mb is sufficient to me.. a saved game just need about 256kb(the highest i have now)

    i currently have 5 games and will buy the newest game that will be released on May 25 that is Monster Hunter Freedom. Tomb Raider release on the same date but i wont buy it since this game is too easy.(not challenging,low rated as well) also on PC and PS2

    if u have any question pls email me…i hope we can compare prizes in Malaysia and USA…i will be coming back on this coming summer…miss my parents though.=)

  213. Sam May 3, 2006 at 2:13 am #

    oh btw..what is the psp game cost in Malaysia??can u list up some for me?

    thanks alot. really appreaciate that


  214. ks May 3, 2006 at 10:46 am #

    Sam, there is a pack that comes with 1GB MS. It’s called GigaPack instead of the normal Value Pack. Try to do a image search on google and you’ll get it.

  215. Berd June 22, 2006 at 6:08 pm #

  239. AngelBear December 18, 2006 at 9:54 pm #

    Hihi… i’m from penang, malaysia..
    i plan to buy a psp, can anyone explain to me how many version they have in market?
    i m confuse…
    seems there are V1.51, V1.50, V2.5….
    which one is the lastest one?
    what’s different between them?
    which one is worth buying…


  240. jocelyn84 December 19, 2006 at 3:24 am #

    hi angel bear ,

    if u wan to play downloaded games best get original 1.5 version cause if u wan to play games at 2.7 version u can use a devhook software (which u install in ur memory stick) to play.2.7 version can sometimes can’t play other games plays in 1.5 upgrade the software version so that they can stop hackers from cracking it. now only 1.5 and 2.7 have been crack. becareful when u buy psp from dealer cos they might change ur headphone , battery and charger for an imitation. Memory stick for sony original 2 gig is rm350 . pls look at sony official website to see how the stick look like. the imitation for 2 gig has a red color front label which is a 512 mb upgrade to 2 gig… this is nnot original….

    Be carefull.. ask for a original regardless of the price.. pls check ur bar code number to know where the console come from… check ur website cos different code bar show different region…

    when u buy psp be prepare to spend money… all console need at least 1 ORIGINAL UMD to play downloaded game and devhook software…

    jocelyn from penang

  241. AngelBear December 19, 2006 at 8:14 pm #

    hi jocelyn84,

    1.5v + 2GB MS + 2 games = rm1300
    at Megamall, Prai

  243. jocelyn84 December 19, 2006 at 10:37 pm #

    to angel bear.

    pls visit…. it another forum where they talk more of psp…

    what type of brand is the memory stick… which region (country ) that the psp console come from? games is it a umd or they download for u ? for me i see it expensive… if u come to kl , especially sg wang you might be cheated well there as well cos sg wang is famous for that…unless u have an expert along with u.. as i said be careful of ur console being given either total original or partly…pls do take time and do ur research on psp before u get it …

    most important is get the total machine purel orignal regardless of price… buy value pack … if possible get scan disk for a memory stick. it more expensive… at least a 2 gig or more…

  244. jin_chick December 20, 2006 at 8:54 am #

    hi…i also psp feverist..
    i yet to buy 1,but confuse where to buy…

    and i wanna reply to gerliez,pink psp is selling here at about rm 1090 basic pack..
    i wanna ask 1 question: do anyone have problem with console? often brokedown or rosak then send to claim waranty?

  245. jin_chick December 20, 2006 at 9:52 am #

    and also another question…
    whats the price difference in buying a value pack at gaming shop and buying at sony wing or sony official shop?
    what are the pro n cons?
    do ppl buy at sony shop?

  246. johno December 20, 2006 at 10:46 pm #

    Hey 241jocelyn84 (post #241)
    Come on, there’s another h@ck which works with 1.5v best and even the TA-082 motherboards, and it doesnt need a umd in the drive at all. But the catch is, only 80-90% of the games work. If you do your research well, you will know what I mean. Disclaimer: I am not encouraging pir@cy, so u need to have to buy the umd to play the umd.

    And the red label at the front does not mean it is a fake mem0ry stick, please go check ebay for their fake mem0ry stick guide. Here’s the link.

    If you dont know anything, then dont say anything.

    jin_chick, I have been using PSP for almost 1 year now… and this PSP is 1 hell of a product…. I dropped it 3 times.. and 1 time my toddler threw it… and it’s still fine… I was expecting worse as the memory stick jumped out… when I dropped it on the road… but it is working fine… what a product… and about the price… better get it from individual shop… and no need value pack… just but the console and get a 4G memory.., I’m using non orginal memory and it’s still working fine *touchwood*

    last month i went to sungei wang with my friend. he just bought the white sony psp 2.71SE with 2 gig high speed(not original) and 3 ISO games (total package=RM1130). Please remember that some seller will give you non original headphone with remote control, Pouch and handstrap. i have to check out the package coz i have a psp too that i bought from Singapore. Be careful to any seller in sungei wang coz my friend has been cheated after he went back home, he found out the strap and cloth has been removed. Fuckin shit to all of you claim to be Sabahan and speak fluent malay. i have to tour all around there to check out the original box and the package. if you wanna buy a memory stick, make sure u get the Sandisk memory stick or get it from sony dealer. i will recommend that if you wanna buy psp just check out the package from Please Remember don’t buy any sony psp that got firmware 2.72 – 3.2. you won’t able to play ISO game(original umd game format can be transfer to memory stick)

    I’m would like to buy a PSP but I’m new so please help me ………
    Is there fake PSP in the market ? How do I know I’m getting an original set ?
    What’s the difference with the Japan and US version ?
    What is UMD used for ?
    Can non original memory stick cause any harm to the PSP ?
    Does the PSP come with warranty ? I have been asking a few shops in Penang and they say it does not come with any warranty. Is this normal ?

  271. prawn September 26, 2007 at 5:49 pm #


    I’m looking for the psp lite in malaysia. Anyone know the price? Haha. Hopefully not that expensive :)

  272. hanarumitryogi September 30, 2007 at 6:23 am #

    Hi guys,
    I went to sungei wang yesterday.

    I found out reasonable prices like:
    RM 800 – RM 880, you get:
    – Console (ver. 3.4 / 3.56, modified)
    – Adaptor
    – Battery
    – Soft Pouch
    – 4GB memory
    – Screen Protector
    – and, they can put ANY download games you like.

    Oya, and for the PSP Slim and Lite,
    I found it around RM 780 – RM 1080.
    But you only get console and adaptor.

    Quite OKAY, right the prices?? :)

    But not every stores that’s gonna sell PSP Slim and Lite really understand about console and games.
    Like when I asked one store, they said they will sell it next week,
    but when I asked store next to it, they said they will sell it next YEAR,
    and, when I asked the store next to it, they sell it already!!
    Sounds stupid huh?
    I even almost got in the fight with the shopkeeper. Wew.

    Hope I can help you guys with the info.
    Take care!

  275. Playboy October 2, 2007 at 4:26 pm #

    hello there guys,i’m a 14 year old Malaysian boy.I’m a PSP hacker.Before any of you guys buy a psp,make sure the psp is around RM700–>RM900.If it’s 900 and above DONT buy it.Many Malaysian shop owners cheat n00bs.(No hard feelings).If they sell you a psp with firmware 2.00–>3.52 and they say “i have to downgrade your psp to 1.50 and then upgrade to custom firmware.This will cost about RM200” DONT buy from him.PSP fat’s are very easy to upgrade/downgrade.If you don’t want to wase too much money,go to a shop and ask for OFFICIAL firmware instead of custom firmware(they charge more for custom firmware).try getting a psp with firmware 3.50 or lower.And make sure you buy a UMD-original game-of LUMINES 1.This will allow you to downgrade to 1.50 and upgrade to custom firmware in a snap of a finger.For more help come to and click the “live chat”.I’m a staff member there and i can asure you maximum service.From Playboy….Peace

    answer me please.


  297. Playboy November 3, 2007 at 10:32 am #

    Orivpeace,the region of your psp doesn’t matter.All UMD games(No matter Japan or America)work like a charm on all psp’s.Only UMD video is a problem as you need the correct region to play the UMD.It’s not a problem on custom firmware psp’s as the fake region can be switched easily in recovery mode.

  298. Mycado November 8, 2007 at 9:10 pm #

    Guys,try getting a psp slim with cfw and ORIGINAL memory stick for RM800.You can get it in Plaza Masalam(shah alam,beside Concorde hotel).Fake memory stick can cause bricks especially when flashing.Fakes are good for iso’s,but not good for flashing/hacking.

  303. sniper_cr3w November 10, 2007 at 1:47 pm #

    go to Summit , ground floor got BCB bank rite ?…. the shop is opposite the bank , silver X is the name of the shop , if i’m not mistaken ….. phone number 0380230281 – Ah boy ….

  307. sniper_cr3w November 11, 2007 at 2:35 pm #

    No big deal mycado …. for zoobank – Custom FW 3.71 – M33-3 and sony 3.71 is the latest firmware …ask shop dealer … go for custom FW is much better … can do a lot of things …

  308. zoobank_93 November 11, 2007 at 3:58 pm #

    how much is it .where can i get at a good price.i hope also when buy no need to upgrade or downgrade.i just want the psp itself,charger,baterry,adapter and a 4GB memory or 2GB memory so is it cheaper to get it that stuff only?

  309. Playboy November 12, 2007 at 7:51 pm #

    zoobank,Try getting a fat psp with either 1.50 or custom firmware.(3.40oe-a or 3.52m33-4)3.71m33-2/3.71m33-3 is a little buggy as it contains many prx bugs.The 3.72-HX firmware sucks too.So try getting a 3.40oe-a or 3.52m33-4 psp.Summit or Plaza Masalam is my opinion.For more info,visit us on IRC chat.

  310. zoobank_93 November 12, 2007 at 9:27 pm #

    by the way how much is it at place where anyone knows can get the cheapest price for just the psp itself,charger,baterry,adapter and a 2GB the 1.50 or the 3.40oe-a or 3.52m33-4 can play games both using the cd behind the psp and the memory stick?

  311. Mycado November 13, 2007 at 2:34 pm #

    wut is fw??any different between fw3.71 and sony 3.71?

  312. Playboy November 14, 2007 at 1:39 pm #

    fw is the firmware of your psp.It’s the version of your psp.Sony release newer firmwares for bug/features/security updates.And your questions “3.71 and 3.72”’s basically the same with a few bug patches.If you’re on a slim,you need another fat psp with 1.50 or custom firmware to make a Pandora’s Battery to install either 3.60M33 or 3.71M33-3.If you’re on a fat psp,you need another fat psp with 1.50 or custom firmware to make a Pandora’s Battery to downgrade your firmware to 1.50 then upgrade to custom firmware(i recommend 3.52m33-4).Only then you can play pirated games.

  313. Mycado November 16, 2007 at 3:13 pm #

    sound so complicated~anyway,thanks~

  314. Playboy November 22, 2007 at 2:09 pm #

    Guys…Do any of you guys sell bricked psp’s?..I really wanna buy some..In KL or Shah Alam.Thank you.

  315. PSP-Newbie November 26, 2007 at 3:27 pm #


    I’m looking to get a PSP before Christmas. found this useful forum and would appreciate your advice.

    I checked out price of PSP at some shops in Summit USJ and Sunway Pyramid over weekend. The total package for PSP Small & Lite is:

    PSP console, battery, adapter – RM650-700
    4GB memory stick pro duo – RM150-190
    UMD original game – RM120-150 (need this as boot disk to play downloaded games on memory stick. Alternative is to pay for a some firmware upgrade which will cost RM50, but then can only play 90% of the games)
    TOTAL – RM950-1000

    Best deal I got is RM950 for PSP, 4GB memory stick pro duo + 1 UMD original game, plus screen protector and casing.

    Is this a reasonable price range?

    Appreciate your feedback and advice. I just don’t want to get conned. Thanks.

  316. eow November 28, 2007 at 11:39 am #

    Hi Guys! Im from Philippines. My officemate is going to malaysia this coming week, and i’m asking him a favor to buy me a PSP slim. Would like to know if how much would the psp slim cost in malaysia, and where can he buy? I would really appreciate your reply. Thank you in advance.!! =)

  322. Phoe December 3, 2007 at 10:57 pm #

    Hi Mike. I would Advise your friend to get it from Sungei Wang If he is going to KL. There, you can get the modified version for about RM820 and above (Bundled with the 4GB Memory Stick) :) i just went scouting on the price 2 days ago. If you were to buy a non modified one, you can actually go to KLCC Sony Style (3rd Floor) where they sell it for RM799 (Battery, charger and Console included.)

  323. Playboy December 4, 2007 at 8:58 am #

    As i said before get 3.52m33-4,3.71m33-3 is suitable for piracy(games on memory stick) but it’s a NO-NO for hacking.3.52m33-4 and 3.40oe-a is the best for hacking in my opinion.

  324. Playboy December 4, 2007 at 9:04 am #

    And this reply is for eow,the best way to get an iso game to run at full speed is to BUY an original UMD and change several settings in recovery mode.This settings include:
    No UMD:disabled>>>>3.40oe-a
    No UMD:Either the Sony or M33 Driver>>>3.52m33-4

    Certain games like Gta Lcs,Fifa 08,require higher speed.Only newer custom firmwares support this feature,3.40oe-a,3.52m33-4,3.71m33.
    Go to recovery mode/cpu speeds and change the CPU speed in UMD/ISO=300.

    Playboy advises: to go into Recovery Mode, you will have to turn OFF your psp (hold the powerswitch up for 10 seconds). Then hold the R-TRIGGER and while holding it turn your psp ON.


  325. Playboy December 4, 2007 at 9:07 am #

    Mike,i would say that psp slim’s come cheap in Plaza Masalam,Shah Alam Section 9.They sell already hacked psp slims(3.71m33-3 done with the Universal Unbricker).But i’d rather get the fat psp as it’s much more suitable for hacking.Silims are good for piracy but they aren’t good for hacking.If your friend isn’t the “hacking” kinda type,then get him a slim :) ,To make him feel better,download and install PTF themes for him,it’s very simple.Just place the PTF in PSP/THEME.

  326. Leem December 4, 2007 at 6:52 pm #

    hmm… i think im going to get wat i want this weekend =D
    a hacked psp slims(3.71m33-3 done with the Universal Unbricker)
    Thx for your info Playboy =)

    erm… wat is a PTF themes? a homebrew app.?

  327. -z- December 5, 2007 at 3:21 pm #

    hi people i am doubt of something….

    4gb memory stick high speed pro duo

    and 4gb memory stick pro duo…

    both not original..

    do they have differences?? .. thanks..

  328. Playboy December 6, 2007 at 10:03 am #

    PTFs are themes which SONY created.They made a PTF theme maker which allows users to make their own themes.PTF themes are simple themes and it’s very easy to install unlike the Rco/prx themes that were commonly used on previous custom firmwares.And it’s NOT a homebrew application………Let me ask again,do any of you guys sell bricked psps?,i really need some for experimenting purposes..i need it before my school starts..Next year got PMR :(

  329. Playboy December 6, 2007 at 10:08 am #

    -z-…There is no difference actually.It’s just used as usual to cheat users.I adivise you to get an original memorys stick as it peforms better compared to fake sticks.Fake sticks are horrible for hacking as they can corrupt a psp while flashing.But for iso purposes…the pirated stick oklah. ๐Ÿ˜€

  330. Leem December 6, 2007 at 1:02 pm #

    Next year PMR huh @@” which mean u r juz 14 years old kid =X
    damn… nowadays kid are so good on this kinda stuff.
    im 20 oledi~ juz started to understand a PSP console LOL~
    Playboy, i bet u r going to be a PSP technical or something like tat XD

  331. Playboy December 6, 2007 at 5:04 pm #

    Hahahahaha Leem…xD

  332. elle December 6, 2007 at 9:50 pm #

    Im going to get psp slim @ KLCC(convention center) this weekend. PC fair starts from tomorrow (7th-9th)! hope i can get a good price. Playboy- u said version 3.71 is good for piracy..not for hacking rite? what do you mean by hacking? what can we hack? i need to know so i dun regret later. i was hoping that i can do alot more on my psp rather than just playing games. I heard that we can surf the net @ any wifi zone avail. is that true? and some says we can even chat on mirc. nice.
    Is there any other info u could give me so that i wont be cheated?

    N most important, sg wang console is so cheap n some says that it is a RECON set (a second hand set that have been re-newed so it looks like a brand NEW set) How can we possible reconized a recon set n a new set? u have any idea?

    looking forward for your reply, playboy. thanks in advance!

  333. kool_buddy December 6, 2007 at 9:58 pm #

    waiting for an answer for my Qstion please ? time is running out for me … Qstion lies above !! Plz do check !!

    P.S: i Dont have much knowledge about PSP yet

  334. Playboy December 6, 2007 at 11:50 pm #

    elle,i’ve personally tested 3.71m33 psp.The updates when smoothly.3.71m33–>3.71m33-3 with the kernel150 patch.That firmware is perfect and stable but it isn’t good for themes.I do not mean the PTF ones,i mean the prx’s.Flashing themes on it is risky as it might result in a fully bricked psp(Cannot use).I believe shopkeepers do NOT install the kernel150 patch when selling the psp’s.Therefor,hacking is made a little harder….but it’s very easy if you try hard enough ๐Ÿ˜‰ .The kernel150 patch is needed in order to run homebrew application/games/emulators.Homebrew means games or applications made by other users with advanced C++ knowledge.Using this homebrew feature,you can run some really cool emulators like Gbc,gba,nes,snes etc.This means you can play all the olden games on your psp.To make it better,it runs at full speed.The reason why i mentioned that 3.71 isn’t suitable for hacking is because you have to install the addons seperately,unlike previous firmwares like (3.40oe-a,3.52m33-4)where the kernel150 patch comes in the installer it self.Hacking on 3.71m33-3 does no harm whatsoever,it’s just that you need to be patient and have to install a few additional stuff :)

  335. Playboy December 6, 2007 at 11:53 pm #

    And elle,as i’ve mentioned before,the slim is no where as good as the fat psp.The fat psp is of course heavier but a hacked set can play ALL homebrew unlike the slim psp which can only play SOME homebrew.SOME=1.00 kernel homebrews.Slim also doesn’t have the infra-red feature which i find really important ๐Ÿ˜‰

  336. Playboy December 7, 2007 at 12:02 am #

    kool_buddy,Try getting a fat psp with either 3.52m33-4 or 3.71m33-3.Any firmwares lower than 3.40oe-a is UNACCEPTABLE seeing that plenty of games require 3.40++.I’ve checked around and realised that most of the shop sells fake memory sticks…..try getting an original stick IF you want to hack your psp.The term hack in this case refers to : Upgrading/Downgrading.A standard psp should cost around RM600–>RM800.After adding a few games,protection screen and a few other utilities,it should come around RM1000–>RM1100.DO NOT buy if it’s higher than the price that i’ve suggested.And have a good time in Malaysia and Singapore ๐Ÿ˜€

  337. Playboy December 7, 2007 at 12:04 am #

    elle,We can talk in IRC.I’m a staff member at #psp-hacks chatroom.We help with all psp related issues,but piracy is a NO-NO.Check for more info.

  338. Playboy December 7, 2007 at 12:16 am #

    elle,i forgot to mentioned in my previous reply…hope this isn’t considered as spamming xD .The psp internet browser is highly overrated,it’s actually kinda sucky to be fair.I’d rather get a PDA for surfing the internet.You also mentioned that you want your psp to do much more than playing games,if you want to enjoy the best features,you need to install the kernel150 patch on your psp (If it’s 3.71m33)I will help you do it…if you need my help ๐Ÿ˜€ .There is a few homebrew applications which allows cool features.You can read PDF’s(bookr and pspreader),listen to radio(not local channels though),play olden days games(emulators),code C,C++,watch PMP videos(High quality videos which are smaller in size and higher in quality compared to psp mp4).The features are just amazing,check out …to get a clue on what i’m blabering about :)

  339. Leem December 7, 2007 at 3:14 pm #

    does the PTF theme background picture move?(moving background picture)
    such as the one with PS3, looks like some white smoke moving on the background image.
    or it juz for the Rco/prx themes that only support by cfw?

  340. Playboy December 7, 2007 at 3:22 pm #

    Leem,PTF themes are similar to Top_Menu_plugin.rco.It’s only the icons and background(still wallpaper).System_Plugin_bg.rco which are the waves(moving background)can’t be used via PTF themes.If you want to get the coolest themes(Maximum Customization) I’d go with 3.52m33-4 because it’s safer to flash the .rco themes.I’m using a the called AppleCor with lava waves,check this out..This isn’t my psp though ๐Ÿ˜‰ Playboy advises:You can see AppleCor theme in action –>

    – AC adaptor
    – battery
    – 4gb card

  351. Playboy December 13, 2007 at 3:13 am #

    Ahh.No Problem elle ๐Ÿ˜‰ and sorry for the late replies because i was on a holiday with my family.NZ…psp’s are around RM 700(console only)….both fat and slim psp’s are the same price.The region doesn’t matter.The only difference it makes is that it supports the region UMD Videos(Useless).The Japanese region psp’s are usually ceramic white and has newer options in newer firmwares like Portable Tv…etc.These features are useless since 1) We don’t understand japanese xD.2)The connect spots are in Japan ONLY.Regions aren’t a matter in custom firmware psp’s because you can switch regions easily in recovery mode.Regions are important for theme flashing too.Most of the themes (99% rco themes) DO NOT work on Japanese regions.I advise to set the fake region to America or just Disable it.Recovery Mode–>Configuration–>Fake Region=Disable/America.

  352. Playboy December 13, 2007 at 3:18 am #

    FANTASYX2,Get either a psp slim or psp fat( Your Choice).The shop dealer would usually install custom firmware on it.At the moment,the one’s that are being installed are 3.71m33-2.This version allows iso games as well as all the newer UMD( original games ).With the kernel150 addon installed,you can enjoy homebrew games/applications.Homebrews are made by other psp users that understand the C,C++ language.

  353. Playboy December 13, 2007 at 3:27 am #

    KiDuLt,You have to upgrade your psp to newer custom firmwares in order to enjoy newer games UMD/iso.Also,3.10oe-a is totally outdated and doesn’t allow rco customization.You can either upgrade to 3.52m33-4 or 3.71m33.Both are excellent firmwares but on 3.71m33,you need to do a lil’ extra work…updating..patching.But it’s very simple and safe.If you upgrade to any of the firmware’s i mentioned,you might be able to get AT LEAST RM700.This is because you include games..i believe plenty ๐Ÿ˜‰ and it’s a Value Pack psp seeing that you have all the stuff included in the pack.Value packs are very hard to find..resulting in dealers to sell fake straps,pouches,cases….etc.Doesn’t matter though….as long as your psp is safe ๐Ÿ˜‰

  354. Playboy December 13, 2007 at 3:35 am #

    Leem,i see that you’ve got a good deal ๐Ÿ˜€ Congratz.hehe yea,the psp slim doesn’t feel as solid as the fat one.And don’t worry,you can enjoy PTF themes ๐Ÿ˜‰ .There are newer updates for 3.71m33.The latest one is 3.71m33-4 which is morer to psx game loading functions.Leem,you can’t install the kernel150 patch because the psp slim doesn’t support 150 kernel,but you CAN play 1.00 kernel homebrew games ๐Ÿ˜€ .Here is an example of a game i like:D —> .You can find the update -4 here.You do not need to install the updates one by one,just upgrade to -4 straight. Here is the update link —> .Just place the UPDATE folder in PSP/GAME and run it on your psp…it will fix a few bugs ๐Ÿ˜‰ Feel free to ask if you have any doubts :)

  355. elle December 13, 2007 at 4:36 pm #

    hi again,playboy. i juz got myself a ceramic white psp slim v3.71 m33 for RM1k!

    this is what i got:
    -console ceramic white v3.72m33
    -few free games.
    -software (to be able play downloaded games etc. -says the seller)

    It’s japanese version. Havent got myself any theme yet coz ive surf the net seems like there are 2 version of themes, one for official firmware and others is not. Im not sure if it fits. how worst can it get if i wrongly install unsuitable themes for my psp? btw, i got bricked psp warranty for 2weeks. ๐Ÿ˜›

  356. Playboy December 13, 2007 at 5:19 pm #

    elle nice :) Good Deal too.Ok,the themes are very easy to install.I mean the PTF themes.These themes are CREATED by Sony.They released a software allwoing users to make their own themes and use them on 3.70++ firmwares.(Official and Custom).These themes are 100% safe as they do NOT touch flash and chances of bricking is basically 0%.The other one is .rco/prx themes.This require users to flash the theme onto their firmware flash0.This is very risky for normal users especially on 3.71m33.I do NOT recommend this method.(Only for custom firmware psp’s only).elle,check out this site,they have plenty of cool PTF themes.You need to register before downloading them. –> .As you are on custom firmware(slim)you can enjoy 1.00 homebrew but you CAN’T enjoy 1.50 kernel homebrew.This is for Leem as well,1.50 kernel homebrew uses the kXploit method therefor,it comes like this “Homebrew and Homebrew%”.While the 1.00 method is just “Homebrew”with the eboot.pbp in it.This is a very cool homebrew that you should try.It works like a charm on a psp slim. .If you have any questions,feel free to ask,you too Leem….To both of you “Enjoy your new psp’s” ๐Ÿ˜€

  357. Playboy December 13, 2007 at 5:23 pm #

    Also there are newer updates for 3.71m33,the latest being 3.71m33-4. .This update includes update -2 and -3,so you do NOT need to install one by one.Just run this update.It’s mainly for bug fixes and patches…including pops(ps1 emulation).

  358. Leem December 13, 2007 at 11:22 pm #

    hey elle, i wander did you bought your psp? with 2 week bricked warranty LOL! that a nice one ๐Ÿ˜€ congret~ here the source of my psp game register and enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

    Playboy, i wanna ask some about “ps1 emulation” izzit save for 3.71m33?
    any chance for bricking?
    im so scare for bricking off my psp >.

  359. Leem December 13, 2007 at 11:24 pm #

    ops… miss out a word…
    hey elle, i wander “where” did you bought your psp?

  360. Playboy December 14, 2007 at 12:45 pm #

    Leem,emulations are perfectly safe,download the ps1 eboots from the site you linked elle (psp iso) and place it in PSP/GAME.

  361. Playboy December 14, 2007 at 1:26 pm #

    Leem,to make you feel better,i’ll exlain a bit about bricking a psp.Bricks would occur when a psp’s flash 0 is messed up.There are two types of flashes on a psp firmware.(Main ones).Flash 0 and Flash 1.Flash 0 is VERY important…..NEVER mess with it unless you have a valid reason and you are 100% sure on what you’re doing,while flash 1 is just the psp settings.If you format flash 1,it will just reset the psp settings….nothing to worry about.Flash 0 will NOT get messed when you play games,emulators,homebrew games,photo….etc.It WILL get messed if you delete files in flash 0.Some homebrew applications like “PSP Filer,Slash N’ Flash,Firmware upgraders,downgraders” all touches flash.Therefor,there is always a chance of a brick when you mess with those.Leem,do not worry as you won’t brick if you follow what i say :)

  362. Playboy December 14, 2007 at 1:28 pm #

    Guys…..please tell me if any of you guys want to sell bricked psp’s for a reasonable price.I really need some for experimenting purposes…..cuti sekolah is coming to the end already… Thanks :)

  363. Davien December 17, 2007 at 11:03 am #

    yoO playboy! i’m actully planning to buy new psp so do you know any information what is the cheapest psp price at Sabah??? i don’t have a lot of money to buy a package of psp soO..i might only but the console first and i will upgraded it from time to time..

  364. donkey December 17, 2007 at 6:02 pm #

    hi, im new here.may i know what’s the difference between modified and un modify psp??

  365. Playboy December 17, 2007 at 7:59 pm #

    donkey,i believe you mean hacked psp.Most psp’s sold in Malaysia are hacked before hand,so you do not need to worry about the hacking process.The difference are that the original firmware psp doesn’t have the abililty to run homebrew(made by other psp users who are good at C++),pirated games,install themes(flash)and plenty more.At the moment the good firmwares around are 3.40oe-a(quite outdated though),3.52m33-4 and 3.71m33-4.Feel free to ask if you have any more doubts.

  366. Playboy December 19, 2007 at 4:15 am #

    Hello there again.I’ve got some news for the psp-homebrew loyals.I’m gonna upload my HTML coding soon.It contains direct download links for a few good homebrew games,Appilcations,Themes as well as updates.I’ll provide the download link once i’m happy with the end result.I’m still coding a little bit more…very simple page though ๐Ÿ˜‰

    anyway it is 2nd hand set… but the owner said still in good and perfect exterior condition.. any suggestion is most welcome .


  370. Playboy December 20, 2007 at 9:42 pm #

    Playgirl….k.The psp slim is a litte harder to hack seeing that you need either a psp with 1.50 or custom firmware to install custom firmware on a psp slim with an official firmware on it.You do not need to worry though seeing that psp’s in Malaysia usually are sold with custom firmware on it.Hacking wise,i’d go with the fat psp.

    1st) Fat psp’s can be downgraded and have plenty of stable custom firmwares.
    2nd) Fat psp’s own the infra-red option…..very important in my point of view.
    3d) MOST IMPORTANT….Fat psp’s have the 1.50 kernel homebrew option which the slim doesn’t have.

    The 150kerrnel homebrew basically allows your system to run about ANY type of homebrew game no matter if it was made for firmware 1.00 or firmware 1.50.Slim’s in the other case,can only run 1.00 kernel homebrew.(There are….but not as much as 1.50 homebrew).Otherwise,the slim is ok… looks sexy,but looks very weak.Looks like a strong wind may snap the psp in two xD.
    Piracy wise,both slims and fat’s are ok.

  371. Playboy December 20, 2007 at 10:03 pm #

    aril_roku,i’d say no.The deal you got is decent….but did the owner explain to you the reason he’s selling his psp? If he’s got a valid reason,go ahead and buy it…but if he comes up with lame excuses,that means something is fishy.(usually).aril_roku,if you decide to buy his psp,make sure you make him stay with you for a couple of hours while you test for ANY sort of damage.aril_roku,Just for your information….and brand new fat psp set costs about RM700–RM800 with the latest custom firmware installed on it.3.40oe-a is a excellent firmware but there are plenty of games that require a higher firmware to play.Aril_roku,your money,you decide :) Feel free to ask if you have any doubts in mind.

  372. kool_buddy December 21, 2007 at 1:07 pm #

    @elle,leem,playboy & others, guys I’ve bought PSP Slim 3 days back in singapore at 397 sing $. It includes PSP Slim black & san disk 4 GB & screen protector.The shop person installed the 3.71 m33-2 firmware.
    Thanks for all your comments, it made me get an idea on the firmware and PSP kinda info.At present I am in search for the ISO games to download and play, still I didnt play any game yet :( though i dlded medal of honors 2 its not working.

    As we all are PSP fans , how abt sharing our yahoo or other IM IDs ?

    Njoy guys and thanks again ……..take care !! :)

  373. Playboy December 21, 2007 at 5:10 pm #

    kool_buddy,we aren’t allowed to share our e-mails,MSN etc for safety reasons.kool_buddy,make sure the game you downloaded in an iso/cso file.Place it in ms0:/ISO folder.Do you have a UMD game? Because as far as i know,the slim iso loader isn’t excellent.If you have one,insert it into your psp….boot to recovery mode and go to Configuration.There you will see plenty of options.Go to the UMD mode option.When you click X,it will switch.IE:Sony NP9660_NO UMD-,M33Driver-NO UMD-,Oe isofs legacy -NO UMD-,Normal-UMD required.Choose the option which says -Normal-UMD required.Once done,hopefully the game would load.If you do not have one,try using the SonyNP9660 loader or the M33 Driver.
    This is how you should boot into recovery mode.

    Playboy advises:To set your kernel to 1.50,hold the off switch for 6-9 sec.then hold R trigger while switching it on.Now you will be in recovery mode.

    Once done,follow what i typed above…. Enjoy your new psp kool_buddy ๐Ÿ˜‰

    thx playboy, i just got a PSP-2000 cfm 3.71, from jb, with 4 GB sony high speed memory stick, headset, screen protector,2 yrs warranty, price = RM880, do u think it is good price?

    after a few day i bought, i found problem when playing newly added game (b4 tat still ok) , the screen stated “the game cannot be started (800200148)”, how can i fix tat?

    another thing is .. is PSP not good in playing video file? my PSP easily hang and have to take out battery to shut off power when i try to fast forward the video.

  376. playgirl December 24, 2007 at 1:14 am #

    i actually staying n studying in singapore now. ur modified PSP still got warranty? I have asked some game shop, they normally give no or less than half yr warranty and they all selling china PSP (PSP 2006 if i not wrong).

  377. Playboy December 24, 2007 at 10:53 am #

    playgirl…awesome deal,but most probably your Memory Stick Pro Duo is a fake one,but it doesn’t really matter.That error that you got is a prx error.Do you have a UMD game? (original) If you have one,do the following.

    Playboy advises:To go into Recovery Mode, you will have to turn OFF your psp (hold the powerswitch up for 10 seconds). Then hold the R-TRIGGER and while holding it turn your psp ON.

    If you did it right,you will be in a black screen with red writings,If you encounter a black screeen,press the brightness button.Now,you’ll see a few options.Go to “Configuration” and go to the UMD mode option.Press “X” and let it keep changing until it says “Normal-UMD required”.

    If you do NOT have a UMD,go to the same menu again,go to Configuration,and press X at the UMD mode option until it says M33 Driver OR SONYNP9660.Either of this should work.

    Just for the sake of asking,is it a homebrew game,or an iso/cso game that you’re trying to run?

    Because if it’s a 1.50 kernel homebrew,you will MOST probably encounter the prx error.And about you’re Video problem,i’m not quite sure.A system reflash would do the job,but to do so,you need to make a Pandora’s Battery which is hard to make seeing that you own a slim psp.Try this anyways…go to “System Settings”/Restore Default Settings.This will reset all the settings back to normal.If it still doesn’t work,bring it back to the shop.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  378. playgirl December 25, 2007 at 7:09 pm #

    hey playboy—i tried ur solution but still cant work (i have no UMD). i brought to the game shop the check, the memory stick was spoilt then they replace a new one and get it fullly downloaded new game for me again (newly bought they offered free download game in the memory stick)

    I not sure whether it is fake, but since they really gave a new one, and its speed obviously than normal one (seeing from others customer), i am quite satisfied their service. hehe

    erm.. what is prx error, homebrew game actually? so far i only play iso/cso game. i found from website it exist jso file oso, it is described as a file further compressed, taking less space than cso.
    but i still havent tried it.

  379. playgirl December 25, 2007 at 7:16 pm #

    playboy– forget to thanks for ur time. thx!!

  380. Playboy December 26, 2007 at 10:46 am #

    That’s lies.Memory Sticks don’t cause the problem.Did the shop guy give you the exact same game in the same format?playgirl,to get maximum iso compatibility,get a UMD.One only.Just for your information,jsc,cso DaX,are all iso compression formats.Iso’s are still better because they are the ORIGINAL dump of the UMD.

  381. playgirl December 26, 2007 at 12:04 pm #

    the shop guy 1stly checked the setting by press ‘select’ in the main menu and did something in the recovery mode , then del and download the same game again. when he found the same problem exist, he then gave me a new one and agred to download any game until the memory stick full.

    how a UMD get maximum iso compatibility? did u mean tat it will
    help to minimise the possibility tat the similar problems occur?

  382. Playboy December 26, 2007 at 6:32 pm #

    playgirl,yes.I’m sure a UMD would work.One UMD is enough.Set the menu in recovery mode (UMD option) to “Normal-UMD required”.I’m afraid to say,but usually shop dealers in Malaysia,SUCK at psp’s….big time.(Not all,there are some good ones :) ).They really do cheat.Common problems=reflashing,iso problems.I met a guy who upgrades from 1.50 –> 3.40oe-a for RM 200.Isn’t that stupid? I suggest you to get a UMD and try it.If it doesn’t work,then it might be the iso problem.Just curious,where did you buy your psp from? Shop: section: Plaza :

    Thanks…..and shop dealers,don’t be mad at me…hehehhehe

    play boy– I bought from city square, the shop dealer oso does technician – repair and modifying work. he knows well about psp.

    i met another problem.. need ur help again.
    i just download some application software eg dictionary. i placed in file PSP\GAME. and open in ‘Game’ menu. they all showed ‘the game could not be started(8002014c)’

    do u know hot to solve? thx 1st ya

  385. Playboy December 29, 2007 at 7:20 pm #

    playgirl,first,you need to know wether the application you downloaded is 1.50 kernel applcation or 1.0 kernel application.The slim doesn’t have the ability to run 1.50kernel homebrew..eloader doesn’t help much.I’ll tell you a way to differenciate between a 1.50kernel homebrew and a 1.00kernel homebrew.

    Take dictionary as your homebrew name.
    1.50kernel homebrew==”Dictionary/dictionary and dictionary%/eboot.pbp etc
    1.00kernel homebrew==”Dictionary/eboot.pbp.

    In the 1.50 kernel homebrew case,you’ll need to place the dictionary and dictionary% in PSP/GAME (DOESN’T WORK WITH SLIMS).

    In the 1.00kernel homebrew case,you’ll need to place the folder which the eboot.pbp file is in.Place it in PSP/GAME as well.Works on slims.

  386. Playboy December 29, 2007 at 7:24 pm #

    This is a homebrew that works on psp slim with custom firmware.

    Birdman’s Shooter=

    Place the WHOLE birdman’s shooter 2 in PSP/GAME and it’ll work ๐Ÿ˜€

    sorry for replying a bit late :p
    @playgirl…… I got singapore warranty for my PSP (but i cant say if it still applies even after SHE(shop girl) loaded cfw) ….whatever it doesnt matter much for me as I stay in India and can’t claim the warranty lolz.

    I updated to cfw 3.71 m33-4….and abt ur PSP price play girl I guess u got the best price but not the best PSP :( kaula lampur was our first destination in our tour but i had to wait to reach singapore to buy PSP as i had a feeling that malaysia ppl may cheat (which i learnt from this blog itself lol).

    whatever, PSP which i bought is arnd $30 USD cheaper than in India….i am happy even though i didnt get the best price bcuz i bought at the last 5 minutes of our trip and didnt had enough time in finding the BEST PRICE shop ;))

    @playboy and others……can we get ur yahoo or msn IDs from the psp-hacks website ? I guess u r all the time in that site right ?

    btw I dont have a single UMD ….and I am very much happy with the games i have right now and still downloading.

    right now I’m playing Syphon filter: Logan shadows and it rocks, struggling in the very last level :(

    Keep commenting.
    @playgirl – I bought my PSP in Sim lim square.

    hi..i’m malaysian but now studying in ireland..
    the price 4 psp here is quite cheap..
    i only paid 235 euro which equivalents to RM1100 for a complete set of psp
    (new slim&lite psp+ 2gb memory stick + 2 free games (fifa 08 & midnite club racer)

  390. syahmi January 6, 2008 at 8:25 pm #

    hey guys i think that psp nowadays price is RM600 you know. this price is only at sungei wang. if you go to the ampang park u could get somewhere RM699+. i plan to buy but my father disagree……… i fell very sad :(

  391. imlovinit20 January 8, 2008 at 11:05 pm #

    mr_elpis, i get psp slim custom 3.71mm33-2 firmware for RM 880 in imbi plaza. Includes 4gb memory stick pro duo, but there’s no UMD games. The shopkeeper only provides downloaded games and put all of them in the memory stick. I guess i have 10 games in my memory stick right now. Kinda cool. I’m downloading the latest ISOs for the games and gona put them in my psp slim soon.

    Syahmi: ya, i asked in sungei wang too. RM 600 for psp phat console only. If you includes the memory stick, it will cost you RM 760. There’s another shop in sungei wang that offer RM 580 for psp phat too. You might want to get this psp and get another memory stick for RM 140. (RM 720 in total, you save RM 40).

    It’s all depend on your luck whether you can find these shops or not in sungei wang. I dont really mind about the price. But i did a pretty good survey around lowyat, sungei wang and imbi plaza. Dont go to lowyat, the price are fixed and you cant really ask for discount. Same goes to Sungei wang, the tauke really not that friendly at all. It seems like you wont get a great service after you bought the psp from them. I got mine from Imbi Plaza. The guy gave me a great lecture on the psp slim and im proud of having one in my hands now.

    Go to and join the channel to discuss/know more about psp. Or maybe you might wanna search in google for the doubts that you all have in mind. I did all the research myself and now im proud that i can play a lot of different types of games in my hacked psp.

    I hope those who are looking forward for psps either phat or slim, please do a research a week before you go and buy them. You might wanna compare them both first. For me phat is good coz it allows homebrew games and easier to hack. But the future has come, for me i would choose psp slim coz it’s definitely slimmer, lighter and i dont really rely on homebrew games. I got originial games’ ISO to download so can you all.

    Be smart, survey first before you buy one psp. ask around!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    have a nice day everyone~


  392. Playboy January 9, 2008 at 3:05 pm #

    imlovinit,agreed,you guys should research more on psp’s(not from the shop dealer,from the internet) before buying it.I recently went to a mall and there was a shopkeeper who didn’t even know what was custom firmware…you can ask the shopkeepers on games,they’ve got a good idea on it.imlovinit,i bought mine in Sungei Wang hehe and yes some were rude,especially when you leave their shop empty handed haha..For psp’s…i feel Summit and Digital Mall provide good deals.

    how much does the star wars and the daxter package cost…???

  395. Playboy January 10, 2008 at 7:37 pm #

    eddmeddy,a psp fat and slim will cost around RM800–>RM1000 including extra acessories.(Charger,battery,4gb memory stick,games,cover,protection screen).Your psp doesn’t matter is fat or slim should come with a 3.71m33 custom firmware.The update behind it doesn’t matter really,as far as i know,dealers install 3.71m33-2 at the moment using the Ultimate Pandora’s Battery.I’d rather get a psp fat as it has the 150 kernel homebrew function.By having this you can get 100% homebrew copatibility.The psp slim has the ability to play homebrew as well,but only about 40% of it.NO 150 kernel homebrew.
    For your information,homebrews are games/emulators/flashes/applications made by other psp users who have mastered the C,C++ programming language.

    eddymeddy,if you really want the slim,get it.It’s your choice :) I like the Deep Red psp slim…the new colour.

  396. eddemeddy January 11, 2008 at 12:29 am #

    40% meaning that i can’t play downloaded games is it?
    if it is so,that might be a problem…
    where do u get ur games?
    RM800 is quite expensive for a portable game,don’t ya think?
    any possibilities that i can buy them at below RM700?
    nway,thanx alot for ur help…

  397. kinwawa January 11, 2008 at 12:05 pm #

    Hi Playboy

    According to your previous post, you recommend us to use 3.71m33-4. If happen that i bought 3.71m33-2, can i upgrade it to 3.71m33-4? Do i have to pay to get it upgraded or i may DIY?


  398. Playboy January 11, 2008 at 7:15 pm #

    eddymeddy,homebrew games are different.UMD games and downloaded ones works on a psp slim.eddymeddy,RM800 is very reasonable.Internet,photo,video,music,3d Games,homebrew,customizable themes etc…it’s more that a portable gaming device :)

  399. eddemeddy January 12, 2008 at 6:43 pm #

    i did some browsing for the pricing of psp….
    psp + all the accessories are about RM1000+….haha
    kinda expensive coz my budget is only RM800…
    still,i can get the psp console ONLY for RM750…
    what is a must besides getting the console…?
    i mean like memory card,screen protector & other stuff….
    any advice?

  400. Playboy January 12, 2008 at 10:26 pm #

    As i said earlier,eddymeddy all should be included (4gb stick etc etc).RM750 console only=possible.With all the accessories it should cost at least RM900

  404. QQ January 15, 2008 at 11:25 am #

    Guys help, pls give me some advise.. should i buy original or modified PSP? Which is the best n last for long? Really making me confused.. I hav been survey alot at sony shop n game seller. Wat it mean homebrew, firmware n UMD? I really not good in all this stuffs.. pls give some comment.. If i buy original PSP, will i get to download games easily on internet?

  405. Playboy January 16, 2008 at 7:27 pm #

    lilyallen,sure.I’m assuming you do have a hacked psp in hand.If you have one,proceed and download this. .This is gpSP0.9,it’s the BEST Gba emulator out there.It’s an .rar file,you’ll need WinRAR or any other extracting tools(UnrarX for Mac OS X).Once extracted,you should see three .zip, and gpsp09_src.tar.bz2.Extract the first one ( folder called gpsp09 will appear.Copy the whole folder and paste it in PSP/GAME.Ignore the other zip files,the is for fat psp’s while the other one is the source code of the project.

    Feel free to ask if you encounter any problems,

  406. Playboy January 16, 2008 at 7:32 pm #

    QQ,The difference between the SONY original firmware and the custom firmware is that the custom firmware has more features compared to official firmware.It’s the exact same firmware with the ability to play homebrew(Games,emulators,applictions)made by other psp’s users who are good at C and C++(Programming Language).Firmware is the ‘scientific’ psp word for version.If you buy a psp in Malaysia,you will most probably get a psp with custom firmware.3.71m33-2 or maybe even 3.80M33.UMD is the game.It’s the Universal Media Disk.This game costs around RM150.This is the original game.You can download games from several use-net’s but i’m NOT going to provide the links here.You’ll have to find it yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰ Keyword is —iso—.

    @kinwawa, U can upgrade it to 3.71m33-4 just by downloading the update from the dark_alex’s website, u dont need to pay anything.
    I got 3.71 m33-2 from the shop and later after a week I upgraded to 3.71m33-4 just by downloading the update and running it on my PSP Slim but mind u, I am not responsible if anything happens lol :p

    im staying here in Dubai and i wonder should i buy the PSP from here or in malaysia. the price here is AED700+ almost the same as RM700 if converted to RM. so please let me know the price there and is it ok for me to buy it from here only? advise please.. thanks..

  412. Playboy January 19, 2008 at 2:15 pm #

    kinwawa don’t worry.Updates are VERY simple and VERY safe.Same goes to kernel patches.These updates take a few seconds only.The chances of a brick is still there as it touches flash but it’s VERY slim.Download the updates from trusted sites ( etc) and place the UPDATE folder in PSP/GAME.

  413. Leem January 19, 2008 at 8:44 pm #

    hi playboy, u still here huh~ u r so helpful :)
    i hav a question here, it’s about the latest 3.80 m33 1.50 Kernel Mod.
    izzit juz for FAT psp?

    another thing is the “Custom Firmware 3.80 M33-4 UPDATE” shoudn’t hav a problem updating them into a slim psp rite?

    i found this guide in pspiso

    Custom Firmware 3.80 M33 has been released

    – Installation requires a PSP with 3.52 M33-3 or higher [fat PSP], or 3.60 m33 or higher [Slim PSP]
    – Battery 78% loaded, – Kernel acces on 3.XX
    – Copy the UPDATE folder into /PSP/GAME/
    – Run it, the update will be done by Sony updater. At the end when you are asked to reboot the
    PSP pressing X or O, do it.Do not skip this step shutting down the psp by yourself, or you’ll end with a brick

  414. Playboy January 20, 2008 at 12:08 am #

    Leem,yes the kernel 150 patch is for fat psp’s only.The code will reject slim psp’s.The 3.80M33-4 update works like a charm on a psp slim.I don’t recommend 3.80m33 yet as it isn’t very stable.Once Dark_AleX is out with newer updates,then you can consider it.And thanks for the compliment hehe

  415. kinwawa January 21, 2008 at 1:02 pm #

  418. Playboy January 21, 2008 at 7:37 pm #

    bro@emirates,at the moment,all psp’s are about RM700–RM900.Including the extra acessories,it will cost about RM1000 at most.I prefer the fat psp as it has 150kernel homebrew support.

  419. bro@emirates January 21, 2008 at 7:55 pm #

    thanks playboy.
    RM700โ€“RM900 is the console only?
    here in Dubai is also around that price.
    if together with accessories i dunno how much.
    maybe PSP here is from Sony US.
    anyhow i will check n probably will buy it end of this month.
    i might go for fat PSP also, we’ll see.
    haha.. thanks bro.

    although the price is slightly higher 820, but this guy service is good. is a kiosk at the first floor, the kiosk is at the right hand side, the last kiosk on your back(when u going up the escalator). I think the kiosk name is Brother Game. IF i not mistaken the whole entire 1st floor, that’s the only kiosk selling PSP.
    my package is=> the basic package, include with screen protector, psp case protector ( only front), 2 in 1 cable for u to transfer data and charge psp, 4G ultra high speed memory card, give u free game until the memory is at max and a hard case to keep the psp. Well this guy gave me a brief lecture on how to use the PSP too. XD

    Another thing is about the flashplayer we need for youtube streaming video, izzit possible for psp(slim)?
    Beside that, window media player for online songs, izzit possible for psp(slim) too?

    Your reply will be highly appreciated =)

  425. Playboy February 13, 2008 at 7:35 pm #

    Leem,there is a homebrew application which is known as “AFKIM”.It’s basically coded to seem like messenger on a psp.I only tested it once,but unfortunately,i don’t find it useful.

    Leem,all psp’s(psp slim and psp fat) can’t play flash videos by default.Thanks to homebrew,this is made possible.There is a good player out there known as “PSPTUBE” which has the ability to play high quality PMP videos (way better than psp mp4),stream YouTube videos and so on.

    Leem,i believe you’re talking about web portals.Web portals are just plain HTML and JavaScript coded pages which are ported to a psp.It is a complete waste of time to use it as you ALREADY have access to homebrew.Usually,users who own “official firmware” psp’s will install portals.And yes,it is possible for both slim and fat psp’s.If you do have any HTML or JavaScript experience (or any other web coding),you surely will be able to create your own portals.I’ve made my own before,but it isn’t fun as homebrew….trust me.Hope this helps ya’.

    dirra,yes you are right.3.90m33 is the latest custom firmware (Dark_AleX) for both slim and fat psp’s.The upgrading method is VERY simple but it does have a chance of a brick.Brick in other words means your psp is just as useful as a brick.Can’t boot it on or nothing.If you really do want 3.90M33 (It’s a good firmware),you can ALWAYS try making a Pandora’s Battery on your 3.71m33-4 slim psp.But of course,there is a catch.You will need a fat psp battery(Normal Sony battery) to make the Pandora’s Battery.It can be made on a slim psp as well,but it isn’t recommended.Before you proceed (if you want to upgrade),you should get an extra memory stick (256 would be good(NOT FAKE!!)) and an extra battery (fat battery).Once you get hold of both,you can make a Pandora’s Battery which can be used to unbrick your psp back to 3.71m33-2 if your psp bricks while upgrading from 3.71m33-4–>3.90m33.This process may seem complicated,but once you understand the method,you will feel it’s a piece of cake.

    Let me explain a bit about it.A psp boots through flash 0 (internal memory).If any files in your psp is curropted/lost,your psp wouldn’t boot successfully.This is why we don’t advise you to flash anything in flash 0 (recovery mode).

    Example–>You are upgrading from 3.71m33-4 to 3.90m33.Suddenly,you switch off your psp,or your battery dies or any crap happens.When this happens,the installer will stop flashing the 3.90m33 files.Therfor,some 3.71m33-4 files would be present as well as a little bit of 3.90m33 files.This in other words is a curropted flash 0 and it will cause the psp to brick.

    The Pandora’s Battery boots to the service mode instead of the psp flash 0 (The same way SONY recover bricked psps).Once the user manage to boot into service mode,he/she can then install 1.50 or anything they want.This is frequently used for downgradng/upgrading/reflashing/installing custom firmware and unbricking.

    I hope i explained well enough,and i hope you do understand.Feel free to ask if you have got any other questions,don’t be shy….hehehehe.

    thank you so much!!!!!


  430. Leem February 18, 2008 at 5:59 pm #

    thx for the reply playboy :)
    here is another Question for u ๐Ÿ˜›
    it is a Interactive UMD VIDEO i download juz now from pspiso.

    it said that…
    1. Put iso to ISO/VIDEO folder and press SELECT when you are in XMB.
    2. Now choose the UMD ISO MOUNT and select the idoljanken.iso
    3. Now you can play it in UMD VIDEO in XMB

    my question is wat is XMB?
    i wanna make sure so i could press the SELECT button on the rite place =X

  431. Playboy February 18, 2008 at 9:42 pm #

    Leem,XMB is the cross-media-bar.This is where ALL the menus are situated.Music,Photo,Games etc…This is where you do all the stuff.Note:If the select button || home button (3.52m33-4),doesn’t work,you’ll need to enable VSH menu in recovery mode/configuration.And also,UMD Video iso’s are bad lol..

  432. Mutu February 18, 2008 at 11:15 pm #

    I got a DS Lite Package with r4 cartridge, 1GB micro SD, Games loaded, airform pouch, battery, charger, screen protector for 690RM

    Is it a good buy???

  433. Mutu February 18, 2008 at 11:19 pm #

    I can recommend a sho who sells PSP at 700RM with 4GB SD card…3.7 firmware

  434. Leem February 19, 2008 at 4:50 pm #

    oh man… i face a big problem here playboy T_T

    as i mention on my last post about the UMD Video iso i do wat the instruction ask for, but after i choose the UMD ISO MOUNT from “NONE” to the “idoljanken.iso”(which is the name of the video iso file) my psp reboot it self @@

    after reboot my psp become very very lagy >.< have any idea how to solve this problem? or mayb there is a way for me to reset my psp or format it so that i can have my smooth psp back T_T

    Status: my leg are shaking :S

  435. Playboy February 19, 2008 at 7:51 pm #

    Leem,nah.Nothing to worry.Try setting the UMD ISO MOUNT to NONE again.If this move fails,(still lags),you can set factory settings which will reformat flash 1.This means all the settings (including recovery menu) settings will be reverted back to normal.You of course can change it back according to your wish.Leem,also,if you DO NEED a video playing homebrew,search for PSPTUBE for slim.It’s in the site.It can play all type of videos incluing PMP.Excellent quality videos.I don’t really like using video iso’s.Waste of time in my opinion.

    If you still wish to try out that video iso,you have to place the .iso file in ms0:/ISO/VIDEO.If the “VIDEO” folder isn’t present,create on in CAPITAL LETTERS.Once done,do as you did earlier “Set UMD ISO MOUNT TO –“blah blah.iso””.NOTE::You’ll NEED a UMD in order to do this.ANY UMD’s will do.(including game UMD’s).

    I believe you do not have a UMD.It may be the cause of your problem.
    Good Luck mate!

  436. Playboy February 19, 2008 at 7:54 pm #

    Mutu,we aren’t good at Nintendo DS’s…Sorry.

  437. Playboy February 19, 2008 at 8:08 pm #

    simony2K.Mate,I’m REALLY sorry for this late reply.I didn’t realise you asked for help lol.Anyways,there are fake psp’s around,but it is horrible.You’ll know it isn’t a psp the second you look at it.When you buy your psp,(i recommend psp fat (hard to get now)),you should get a memory stick(99% you’ll get a 4gb fake Sony stick),battery,charger,casing and a few iso games(maybe lol).

    At the moment,shop dealers usually sell psp’s with 3.90M33 firmware installed on it.It’s an excellent firmware so don’t worry.

    Extra information : You can do plenty of stuff on a psp.The one which is most famous to all psp users is homebrew.This are programmes created by other coders who are good at some programming language like C,C++ and so on.( i’m making my own one lol (beginner)).This includes games (shooters,mario etc),applications (psp pda,calculator,painting etc),emulators(GBC,GBA,NES,SNES etc).By using emulators,you can play old games like pokemon silver etc on your psp.

    A psp is very useful.It also has internet browsing capabilities.(wi-fi).Photo viewing(jpg,png,tiff,bmp,gif),video (mp4),music(mp3 and wma),games of course (excellent graphics for a handheld system),play multi-player wirelessly with your mates..etc.It’s a fun gadget.You won’t regret buying it.

    Here is the bad part (not entirely bad).A psp has it’s life (flash 0).Internal memory.If you curropt it or mess with it,it might brick your psp.Brick==Useless psp.(can’t boot).This at times happens when you upgrade/downgrade/flash rco themes etc.Flash 0 isn’t something to play with (i’m sure you won’t lol),unless you are good at it.Fortunately,there is a Pandora’s Battery which can unbrick your psp. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Feel free to ask if you don’t understand what i just posted.It may seem confusing,REAL confusing,lol…but yea it’s easy.Good Luck :)

  438. Playboy February 19, 2008 at 8:11 pm #

    ah lol simony2k,i’m 15 and yup…preparing for PMR.Plenty of homework so yea….spend less time on computers.I’m also coding my first ever homebrew game ๐Ÿ˜€ Again man,sorry for replying late. ๐Ÿ˜€

  439. Playboy February 19, 2008 at 8:24 pm #

    simony2k,another note for you.Don’t worry,the fake version of a psp is known as a ‘POPSTATION’.It’s the worst thing in the world and i’ve never seen it in Malaysia.So,yea,don’t worry :) I also recommend you to get a UMD when buying your psp.

  440. Leem February 19, 2008 at 9:10 pm #

    again playboy, im asking for your help lol…

  444. Sabata February 19, 2008 at 11:24 pm #

    hey guys….i’m planning to buy a full package of psp slim….i don’t want to end up like my previous purchase…spend rm1000 for my NDS Lite full package….so, is there any specific place that sell psp slim in a reasonable price? RM700-RM800 would lift my budget^^.

  445. simony2k February 20, 2008 at 1:59 pm #

    playboy..finally i bought one PSP black for myself..i’ve done the comparison with other shops d and at last i found this shop wakaka…RM790 includes 4gb memory stick,crystal case,pouch and etc. they gimme the latest version 3.90 but i afraid its unstable..few softwares installed such as PSPtube,messenger and skype XD..oh ya…they provide 6 months warranty and gurantee for 14 days…PLAYboy, can u put more links(games) for slim in ur webpage?i wish i can dl from ur site…tQ!!

  446. Playboy February 20, 2008 at 3:27 pm #

    Leem setting cpu speed to 20 rocks hahaha..You do not need a wi-fi connection in order to enable flash player and also wma playback on a custom firmware psp.This can be very easily done in recovery mode.Go to recovery mode/Registry Hacks and boom!.You can activate both the functions and also switch the select buttons (like X and O).

    Leem,the PSPTUBE 20080216 by Sofiya Cat is just a simple update.This means it only contains the eboot.pbp file.You’ll need to download the actual copy of PSPTUBE,then place the eboot.pbp file (that you downloaded in it).It should overwrite and you’re ready to go.

  447. Playboy February 20, 2008 at 3:31 pm #

    simony2k,ah cool.Welcome to the world of psp’s ๐Ÿ˜€ I haven’t got enough time to edit my site so yea :( .I’ll give you a good site though.Enjoy!

    3.90M33 is stable.

  448. Blank February 21, 2008 at 1:23 am #

    Wow, seems like you seem to be a veteran in tweaking PSP’s already, Playboy…

    So, do you mind if i ask some questions?

    I have yet to get a PSP, after reading around the comments, and walking around shopping complexes for the prices, i noticed that a slim PSP costs around 780++.
    Which would mean that it’s probably a fake 4gb mem card right?
    The questions come in here…

    1- So, is there any difference with the real and fake mem. card?
    2- The PSP, probably (modded) will be able to run homebrew applications instantly after purchase? (the emulators, or are there any other requirements?)
    3- Since the latest firmware is best, (it would probably come with it) do i still need to degrade it to 1.5 and re-upgrade it in order to play ISO PSX files? I’ve read that you need the 1.5 kernell or smth…
    4- As for UMD discs, is it packed with the consoles all of you guys bought? Why would we still need UMD’s if we can use the mem. card?
    5- Also, do I have to take note of anything or what to get when getting a PSP…

    Sorry about the long questions and stuff. Got abit headache researching abt PSP when new terms keep poping up one after another <.<
    Thanks in advance.

  449. Playboy February 21, 2008 at 8:06 pm #

    Blank,yes.There is a difference between a fake and an original stick,but it’s not very noticable though.Fake cards CAN cause errors during flashing process (upgrading/downgrading etc).Fake cards are also a little slower than an original stick.

    If your psp is a psp slim,nope,you will not need any additional stuff.There is some good news for slim users,Time Machine is out (BETA).It allows slim users to enjoy 1.50 kernel homebrew as well.There are two types of homebrew.

    1=Normal 1.00 firmware homebrew.
    2=kXploited 1.50 firmware homebrew.

    Fat psp’s with custom firmware installed on it can enjoy 1.50 homebrew (most of the homebrew).Slim psp’s however can’t do it unless you install TimeMachine…pain in the ass.Slims can play 1.00 homebrew though :)

    3.90M33 is the latest firmware.You don’t need to install the 1.50 kernel patch (fat psp only) in order to load iso’s or ps1 eboots.ALL iso’s/cso’s work on 3.90M33 at the moment.

    Depends,some shop dealers provide buyers with a free UMD.Getting a UMD is actually good as it can allow MAXIMUM iso compatibility for slim users.

    I actually recommend you to get a fat psp,it’s a bit better in some ways.Up to you though.Getting a slim isn’t a problem…just my choice :)

  450. Playboy February 21, 2008 at 8:17 pm #

    Just to make you happier,i’ll explain more about the MIGHTY homebrew lol.

    Homebrew are programs (game/applications/emulators) which are made by other psp users better known as coders or developers.They are good at programming languages like lua,C or C++.They code these homebrew,compile it (psp toolchain),then release it.

    There are homebrews out there which has the ability to watch YouTube Videos,Read pdf’s (ebooks),create notepad files,listen to music,watch videos,draw or scribble,play flash games,emulate Gbc,Gba,Nes,Snes,Gb,ps1/psx,sega genesis,N64 and many other consoles and so on..
    Emulation means you can play the above consoles ^^ games on your psp.Very useful.Homebrew is VERY fun.If you do have any coding experience,tell me and i’ll help you code homebrew for your psp.Not easy lol…Ok…back to school homework ๐Ÿ˜€ ..

  451. Blank February 21, 2008 at 10:16 pm #

    Thanks again for clarifying and helping things out. It really helped me alot, now i have a fair idea of the stuff.

    As for coding a own homebrew, i guess i’m still far from ready, although i am currently studying about it… Maybe in a few years time. Haha.

  452. Sabata February 22, 2008 at 1:33 am #

    i found this awesome site! It’s a tutorial how to create a Pandora Battery and Slim memory stick without PSP Phat^^….check this out

  453. Playboy February 22, 2008 at 1:36 pm #

    haha blank.If you really are interested in coding homebrew,learn the C programming language.I feel it’s best for coding homebrew.I’m using C for all my codes.

  454. Playboy February 22, 2008 at 1:41 pm #

    Sabata,ah…you got it wrong.That method is done by hardmodding.It can be done on all sony psp batteries.However,that method is VERY dangerous and it’s not at all recommended for newbies as it can result in injuries ( battery overheating ).I think it’s best not to try it…unless you are good at soldering and stuff.

  455. Leem February 22, 2008 at 6:13 pm #

    hmm… does anyone here have a pmp converter?
    such as apex or videora or maybe you guys have a better one?

    spent hours searching online but still… no result T_T

  456. Sabata February 22, 2008 at 9:50 pm #

    i can’t try it cause i haven’t own a psp yet….>.<! Still searching from shop to shop for the best deal….n get the real stuff(Not Fake Memory or PSP!) Wow playboy…u only 15years old already learn programming?I’m learning it now…currently taking Foundation in Science^^ leading to Networking and Communication….

  457. Playboy February 23, 2008 at 12:29 am #

    Sabata,nice.Programming is really fun.I know HTML,JavaScript,C,a little bit of C++,AppleScript and Unix.

  458. Sabata February 23, 2008 at 8:28 pm #

    wow u much pro….i learn only Visual C, C++, C#, N now currently learning HTML n Java Script…

  459. Leem February 23, 2008 at 9:32 pm #

    thx for the converter but it’s not working for me :(

    i convert the video then drag it into memorystick and open it with “3.80_m33_PMP Player Advance”. It shows the file but the length of time is 00.00.00. wierd…

    another thing is about the aspect ratio, seems like it is fix for 4:3.
    i change it to 16:9 but still the output show me 4:3 format ==”


  460. kool_buddy February 24, 2008 at 6:03 am #

    hey playboy,Leem …..others …. how r u ppl doing ? remember me playboy!

    It’s good to know more about you I mean the other things u know.
    These all what i wanted to know that’s why i asked u for ur email ID, as I like making online frnds all arnd.

    Even I am familiar with the languages u’ve mentioned I would like to know more about how to program applications for PSP using C (I learnt this 3 yrs back just need a brush up lol)

  461. Playboy February 25, 2008 at 7:30 pm #

    kool_buddy,ok cool.Firstly do you have Windows,Mac OS X ( mine ๐Ÿ˜€ ) or Linux.The installation are ALMOST the same.Once you install psptoolchain on it,you can compile it accordingly.1.50 kernel=kXploit,1.00 normal make.Coding psp homebrew is quite hard but there are plenty of tutorials around.Just google “Installing psptoolchain on “windows/mac os x/linux”.This requires you to have some UNIX knowledge. Basic change directory,make directory and so on.

    AND YES!!!! I REMEMBER YOU!!!!!! hehehe

    hi guys …

    I am newbies in PSP (after it had been popular for sometime) … would like to ask, any shop around subang or sunway that offer PSP for RM700++ ? Is it same price for all kind of color? What’s the recommended package that i can bargain with the shop owner?

    Thanks in advance :)

  467. Cute Lemon Jokes February 29, 2008 at 11:05 am #

    I buy the first generation of psp. Cost me Rm1700. Look at the price now !! So…..for xbox360 and ps3 , I will wait for another few month before buy it.

  468. Nindoz February 29, 2008 at 11:10 am #

    I have this problem.i used to have 3.40OE-A’ and i’ve just updated to the latest one,3.90M33-2.i’ve also added both versions of kernel for 3.90.the problem is that half of my saved games (in a 4gb memory stick) doesn’t work anymore.either say 800200148 problem or just a black screen.any suggestions??

  469. Playboy February 29, 2008 at 12:34 pm #

    QQ,As far as i know,many dealers in Klang Valley sell psp’s (slim and fat) with the recent 3.90M33 firmware and some even sell psp’s with 3.71M33.To be honest,being on different custom firmwares isn’t a problem at all unless you have a UMD game which requires a higher firmware to run. (3.71M33 runs ALL UMDS now.)

    QQ,just browse around and you might find a dealer that suits your taste.Plenty in KL and stuff..

  470. Playboy February 29, 2008 at 12:37 pm #

    Cyw,most probably RM 1000 with all accesories.This includes battery pack,charger,casing,protective lens type of plastic,several games,some UMD’s if you’re lucky and a 4gb memory stick (most probably fake).You can obtain the original sony memory stick pro duo (4gb) at an official Sony store.

  471. QQ February 29, 2008 at 11:41 pm #

    Thx again Playboy, I will try my best to find a dealer tht suits me.

  472. Playboy February 29, 2008 at 11:49 pm #

    QQ, problem :) Have a good time and welcome to the psp world!!

  473. Zerozim March 1, 2008 at 11:47 am #

    hello guy…. i want to know how much the psp price now.. becaus ei want to buy the psp slim and does psp slim got pirate game???? because im new here….

  474. Sabata March 2, 2008 at 8:24 pm #

    hey QQ, u live at Klang? I’m from KU….^^

  475. Playboy March 3, 2008 at 2:30 pm #

    Zerozim,as i’ve mentioned in earlier posts,a psp set with custom firmware installed in it(no matter slim or fat) should cost about RM1000 at most.(Including extra accessories-Battery pack,charger,4gb fake memory stick and so on).

    Yes,a psp with custom firmware installed on it DOES have the ability to run iso’s,cso’s and so on.(iso’s and cso’s are dumps of a UMD.(pirate game)).

    Custom firmware == a hacked official firmware.An official firmware psp is like 1.50,2.00,2.50,2.71,3.30,3.40,3.50,3.70,3.80,3.90 and so on.Custom firmware is the exact same firmware but with more features like ability to play homebrew (own coded games),iso (pirated games) and so on.

    Custom firmware == 2.71se-c,3.03oe-c,3.10oe-a,3.30oe-a,3.40oe-a,3.51m33,3.52m33,3.71m33,3.80m33,3.90m33.All these firmwares can play pirated games.

  476. Playboy March 3, 2008 at 2:35 pm #

    Nindoz,as far as i know,that’s a prx error.An iso game has nothing to do with the kernel set on the custom firmware.That error occurs because when you upgrade/downgrade,the psp will automatically reset/restore default settings.This settings can be easily changed in recovery mode or even the VSH menu (select button in XMB(main menu)).

    Once you get to recovery mode/VSH menu,change the UMD mode option from the existing to M33 Driver.Your games should now work as usual.

  477. Playboy March 3, 2008 at 2:38 pm #

    marif,around RM1000 at most.

    girraffe,sure…just browse around and you should find a good deal.
    RM1000 at most…..remember.

  478. Cyw March 3, 2008 at 11:28 pm #

    kool_buddy ah cool.Since you do have knowledge on it,procceed and install psptoolchain..

    ah,sure man ๐Ÿ˜‰

  481. Cyw March 4, 2008 at 6:12 pm #

    hi ..guys..yesterday i try to seacrh the lelong .com and i found some interesting offer…Rm799 with 4g memory,psp slim console, ac power CORD, Ac adtaptor ,crystal case and earphone….
    is it a good deal….
    is that the price around that….
    thanks in advise….
    and i wanna ask is the fat psp can browsing internet too….

  482. Playboy March 4, 2008 at 6:49 pm #

    Cwy,it seems like a pretty good deal,but mind…the memory stick and the earphone sets are MOST PROBABLY fake ones.It doesn’t cause any troubles though..All psp’s (fat and slim) above 1.52 firmware has the internet browsing feature,RSS feed and so on.If you want a good portable surfing device,i’m sorry to say,the psp internet isn’t that good.Better get a PDA for web surfing.

  483. Cyw March 4, 2008 at 9:40 pm #

    thanks for advice…..

  484. Cyw March 7, 2008 at 2:14 am #

    just get my PSP slim yesterday….
    cant wait it…
    btw…any site can give clues that how to play the games?
    hehe…coz i am facing some problem that cant get through the games…

  485. Zerozim March 7, 2008 at 7:04 am #

    hello guy… yesterday i saw psp at tesco extra (ipoh) the price is only RM739 include ac adaptor battery charge and battery.The salesman said that that can play pirate game and if u want to buy only RM4.00….. and thank playboy for ur advice…. :)

  486. sniper_cr3w March 7, 2008 at 7:46 am #

    one of the best games guide ….

  487. Playboy March 7, 2008 at 9:54 am #

    Cyw,what games do you mean? If iso/cso games,just place it in the ISO folder and then run it.If it doesn’t run,hit the select button at the main menu of your psp and set UMD mode to M33 Driver then try the game.

  488. Playboy March 7, 2008 at 10:02 am #

    Zerozim,it’s actually kinda stupid to BUY pirated games when you can download them for free.I however,won’t provide any links for pirated games,use your google skills and search for them ans STOP buying them lol..

  489. Zerozim March 7, 2008 at 10:06 pm #

    ok… and thank playboy……… :)

  490. Playboy March 8, 2008 at 12:50 am #

    Zerozim,you sure are welcome :)

    Umm,I’ve asked this before but let me ask again..if anyone of you’ll know where i can get a bricked psp,please inform me.I really want to complete my “experiment” before my PMR examinations…Thanks

  491. alice March 10, 2008 at 10:04 am #

    Hi, i would like to buy a psp slim for my son, How much is d price & the specs?

  492. Playboy March 10, 2008 at 2:01 pm #

    Hey there alice.Ok firstly,a psp slim with all the accessories should cost about RM1000.Anything more than RM1000 (unless you buy UMD’s or any other additional stuff) isn’t a good price.The color of the psp doesn’t matter.Dealers at times tend to cheat buyers by saying this color is special edition and stuff like that lol.Don’t fall for that.Secondly,your psp will have custom firmware installed on it (either 3.71m33 or 3.80m33 or maybe even the latest 3.90M33).It doesn’t matter really as long as you have custom firmware on your psp slim.You can play pirated games which can be downloaded for free ( in iso,cso image format),listen to mp3 and wma music,connect your psp slim to TV (output),watch mp4 videos (best converted directly from a DVD),view photos (bmp,jpg,tiff,gif,png etc formats supported),play homebrew (emulators,applications and games )coded by other users who are good at programming in C,Lua,C++ and so on,surf the internet via a wi-fi connection and MANY other features.The psp is the best handheld gaming/electronic device..need i say more? Feel free to ask if you have any doubts ๐Ÿ˜‰

  493. Sabata March 10, 2008 at 8:11 pm #

    hey Playboy is that true psp can play some of the ‘PS3 GAMES’?! Or it only act as a joystick/controller for ps3?

  494. Cyw March 10, 2008 at 11:58 pm #

    hi~! playboy…is there any different between those version…
    mine is 3.71m33…and my friend is 3.81m33…

  495. Playboy March 11, 2008 at 12:03 am #

    Sabata,that news is totally false.Yes,it acts as a controller ONLY.This feature is included in official and custom firmware psp’s.It’s known as “Remote Play”

  496. Playboy March 11, 2008 at 12:05 am #

    Hey Cyw.I believe your friend’s psp has 3.80M33 installed on it,not 3.81M33.Not much difference at all.Only thing is that 3.80M33 can play the UMD’s which require above 3.71 firmwares.It’s not a problem at all as 3.71m33 plays ALL the games out there so yea,nothing to worry.Your psp is just as good as your friend’s one ๐Ÿ˜‰

  497. simony2k March 12, 2008 at 11:36 am #

    QQ, really sorry for late reply coz recently i was busy with all my assignments and exam..umm..i’m from ipoh and i bought my psp slim in one shopping complex called YIK FOONG..its actually sumthing like low yat plaza but i noe the shopkeeper hehe..and i recommended all my frens to buy from that shop “BOOMER”..all my frens influenced by me haha to get a psp for themselves..the shopkeeper also aso happy that i brought in so many customers for him…^^ too bad no comission ๐Ÿ˜›

  498. Playboy March 12, 2008 at 7:38 pm #

    haha pity you lol..Good friend you are :) Ok mate,since you know the shopkeeper well,can you ask him if he has any bricked psp’s with him that he wants to sell?

  499. Dununderstand March 13, 2008 at 12:42 pm #

    mind if i ask. What exactly is pandora battery?and the uses?

  500. whatever March 13, 2008 at 3:51 pm #

    On October 2, 2005, an alternative downgrader was released. The “downgrader” was actually a trojan that, if run on PSP, destroys the firmware and BIOS, resulting in the PSP becoming un-bootable. This was officially reported by Symantec as Trojan.PSPBrick. After the release, many PSP homebrew sites came to a screeching halt to check every bit of homebrew for the trojan, to ensure safety for their users

  501. dununderstand March 13, 2008 at 4:44 pm #

    why do people need to downgrade?
    can the firmware 3.90 M33 play ps one game?

  502. Ryan March 13, 2008 at 9:10 pm #

    Hey guys bumped into this site while I was looking for PSP Price. Seems like there’s a updated info about the price, you all can see it

    Hope it can help you all ๐Ÿ˜‰

  504. KTJ March 15, 2008 at 6:56 pm #

    Hi playboy, what if i buy the psp outside of malaysia, would it be included with the firmware so i can play pirated/downloaded games and do all the stuff u mentioned. Really appreciate for the help

  505. zoobank_93 March 16, 2008 at 9:51 pm #

    wats the latest price for psp[cheapest of course]for just the console,batery,batery charger,and a 2gb memory stick?

  506. Playboy March 17, 2008 at 7:13 pm #

    Hey Dununderstand.I’ll explain about the Pandora’s Battery and i’ll try making it as simple as possible.A psp will boot from the flash 0.It’s the internal psp memory of the firmware which couldn’t be accessed with official SONY psp firmwares.However,with the existence of custom firmware (custom firmware= Official Firmware + 1.50 firmware),users do have the ability to access flash 0.These may seem useful for users who prefer a different XMB menu.If you mess with flash 0 without knowing anything about it,most probably you’ll end up with a curropted flash 0 which in other words means,semi-brick.Semi-brick can be recovered by reflashing in recovery mode.If it’s curropted real bad,you’ll get a full-bricked psp.(Cannot be booted).This can happen in official firmware upgrades as well.(Upgding/downgrading etc).Here is where the Pandora’s Battery plays it’s part.Once you’ve inserted the Pandora’s Battery and the Magic Memory Stick,your psp will boot into service mode instead of the normal flash 0.This would allow you to unbrick your psp by installing firmwares in service mode.This method is very useful as it can recover most bricks,downgrade and a very safe way to upgrade to a higher custom firmware.

    Dununderstand,hopefully you’ll understand

  507. Playboy March 17, 2008 at 7:16 pm #

    dununderstand,people downgrade to enjoy custom firmware,homebrew and many other features which are present in custom firmwares.

  508. Playboy March 17, 2008 at 7:19 pm #

    KTJ,most probably no.In Asia,there is a high chance of a custom-firmware ready psp.But elsewhere,99% no.You’ll get a psp with official firmware installed on it.In other words,that means you can’t play pirated games on it.You’ll need to downgrade (Fat psp) or make a Pandora’s Battery to install custom firmware (Slim and fat) to play iso (UMD images) games.

  509. Playboy March 17, 2008 at 7:21 pm #

    zoobank,rm800-rm1000.Everything that you mentioned will be included alongside a 4gb memory stick..fake one.

  510. Playboy March 17, 2008 at 10:02 pm #

  515. Zerozim March 19, 2008 at 11:11 am #

    hi i need help, my friend psp cant play pirate game because he upgrade his psp to 3.80 firmware to 3.90 firmware. how to downgrade 3.90 to 3.90M33 version because I dont have pandora battery!!

  516. PSPManiac March 19, 2008 at 12:06 pm #

    Hi…want to check out wat is the latest price for

    1) PSP
    2) PSP Slim

    and their package contents…

    seen most of the places at klang valley…seems more than rm700…

  517. Playboy March 19, 2008 at 3:03 pm #

    Zerozim,ok.First of all,what really is your friend’s psp firmware?
    3.80M33? If you do not explain your problem properly,it’s near impossible for me to even understand your problem what more solving it? Please explain properly.

  518. Playboy March 19, 2008 at 3:10 pm #

    Hey there KTJ.I’ll answer your question here instead of making a Guestbook comment on my site so that others can view and also learn from the answer.

    Yes,what you searched on the internet is true.The psp slim has a larger flash 0 compared to the fat psp (not that it matters anyway lol),runs UMD games faster,faster internet browsing experience and also a few new slim ONLY applications like Skype.It also has a larger ram and of course,the main addition,TV OUT.Peformance wise,it’s better than the fat psp,but to be honest,i don’t see the difference.A fat psp is actually better homebrew wise as it can run ALL homebrew while slims can’t run the 1.50 kernel homebrew.

    KTJ,it doesn’t matter what firmware your psp is on,as long as it’s custom firmware.
    3.71M33,3.80M33,3.90M33 are all good.

  519. ktj March 19, 2008 at 4:50 pm #

    Hi Playboy, according to your opinion, is it possible in the future someone will be able to create a patch so that slim can run 1.50 kernel hombrew???


  520. Zerozim March 19, 2008 at 7:14 pm #

    my friend psp firmware is 3.80

  521. Playboy March 19, 2008 at 7:50 pm #

    KTJ,well it’s already in the making.TimeMachine is a pretty good development by the great Dark_AleX (The guy who made custom firmwares (OE,SE and M33 firmwares)).So you might find yourself with a 1.50 kernel capable psp slim in the future.

  522. Playboy March 19, 2008 at 10:02 pm #

    Umm Zerozim.You don’t make any sense…Your friend HAD 3.80 and the he upgraded to 3.90 and now he can’t play his pirated games….?

    First of all,pirated games can’t be played on any official firmwares unless you use additional stuff (Only for some firmwares.) If that’s not what you mean,try stating the whole problem again…this time clearly.

  523. Egg March 23, 2008 at 9:09 pm #

    is all slim psp can play downloaded games?
    wat is the differences psp buy from sony center n the shops outside?

  524. KTJ March 24, 2008 at 11:18 am #

    Hi playboy, just bought psp slim, i believe the cfw is 3.80-m33-5. piano black, 4gb, original batt and charger, screen protector, transparent hard case for rm780. The only thing is they dont give warranty, so they say don`t simply download games or your set will bricked.

    need your help on this, since i tend to get bored eassily on games, so i would like to download some other game from the net without worries. Any advice????

  525. Playboy March 24, 2008 at 2:31 pm #

    KTJ,well that’s a VERY VERY good example of dealers who lie.Downloading games can NEVER get your psp set to brick.To be honest,i think that the dealer is using that as an excuse to make you go to the shop and BUY the games….very clever indeed. lol

    KTJ,i won’t provide you with the link,but use your google skills and you sure will get a good site.Just google for iso games.

  526. Playboy March 24, 2008 at 2:34 pm #

    Simple as this Egg,you buy a psp fro, the SONY store,you’ll get an Official Firmware psp which can’t play pirated games unless you use a Pandora’s Battery or use downgrading methods to hack it.

    Buy from a normal game shop,you’ll get a psp with custom firmware ready on it and pirated games.

    Psp slim with custom firmware (3.60M33,3.71M33,3.80M33,3.90M33,3.93M33)can play pirated games.

  527. Egg March 24, 2008 at 6:53 pm #

    thanks, playboy…

  528. Playboy March 24, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

    Egg,no problem mate.

  529. pop March 25, 2008 at 4:44 pm #

    hye there,just want to ask…
    what is diff. btween psp lite n d fat one??
    bcoz i going to get one…:)

  530. Cyw March 25, 2008 at 6:30 pm #

    why my psp will hang sometimes…is there any problem here….is it not enough space for it…or is too many games inside…

  531. Playboy March 25, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

    Cyw,be more specific.When does is hang,during gameplay or in the XMB?

  532. Cyw March 27, 2008 at 12:03 am #

    yup..during playing games…..why ar?

  533. KTJ March 27, 2008 at 10:44 am #

    i also experience it, in the middle of playing manhunt2, suddenly it hang and turn off. Then i try to play again, and it hang again at the same point during gameplay…

  534. Playboy March 27, 2008 at 7:01 pm #

    Cyw,if you mean it hangs when the game is loading,you do not have the UMD mode set right.

    KTJ,see above.If that’s not your case,it might be a bad iso.

    Liew CF,i got a question.Is piracy related discussions allowed here?

  535. LcF March 27, 2008 at 10:27 pm #

    @Playboy: piracy related discussion is not allowed here.

  536. KTJ March 28, 2008 at 2:56 pm #

    Thanks playboy, i think i know what the problem now… Keep up the good work, u been very nice by helping us all here…:)

  537. Playboy March 29, 2008 at 12:26 am #

    KTJ,Ah nice,thanks for those nice words.

    @ LcF,ok,thanks for clearning it up to me :)

  538. Cyw April 2, 2008 at 5:13 pm #

    what is the UMD ?
    so what should i do…..?
    just certain hang in some games….not all of them….
    thanks for advice…

  539. Playboy April 2, 2008 at 7:36 pm #

    Cyw,as i LcF just informed,piracy related chat is NOT allowed here.Therefor,please consult your dealer and explain the problem.I’m sure he will know.It’s just the UMD mode.

  540. Josephine April 3, 2008 at 12:15 am #

    If anyone in Penang willingly to help me, i’ll pay RM20. Thanks.

  543. Egg April 8, 2008 at 3:38 pm #

    jus bought new slim psp include a 4gb memory card for rm760…
    can introduce me any games that is nice???
    wat is ptf theme?

  544. canice April 8, 2008 at 4:25 pm #

    i just bought a psp fat version. got a couple of questions,

    1)recently i have heard that there is a psp version which is a factory refurbish aka rekon version. how i know which is the real thing between 2 psp?
    2)my psp is a 3.80. i heard from my friend that any new umd games will auto update the set to it pre set firm ware. i dont want this to happen. how can i avoid it?

  545. Playboy April 8, 2008 at 10:49 pm #

    Egg,pretty good price.God of war is an awesome game,same goes to Patapon.

    As for PTF themes,it’s actually a pretty long story.The SONY official firmwares do NOT allow users to access their psp internal memory known as flash 0.This was actually a good thing as messing with it CAN cause full bricks.Then,Dark_AleX allowed flash 0 accessibilty in custom firmwares.This started the XMB modifications.Many people semi-bricked and full-bricked their psp’s during the process (n00bs) usually.Pretty simple process though.In the recent 3.71 firmware,SONY decided that it’s better to just introduce PTF themes to make official firmware users happy.It’s basically a theme which is installed from the memory stick meaning NO BRICKS!!.But the bad thing is that,PTF themes aren’t as good as flash ones.

  546. Egg April 9, 2008 at 5:04 pm #

    thanks playboy…
    i think i got wat u trying to say…

  547. Playboy April 9, 2008 at 7:57 pm #

    Egg,theme makers have used that opportunity to make awesome PTF themes.Just google PTF themes and check the results.Plenty of them.

  548. Playboy April 9, 2008 at 8:04 pm #

    haiseong,first of all,why do you have to depend on others and face paying money for a free service?

    Making a Pandora’s Battery is very simple.First get a psp with either 1.50 or custom firmware(any M33/OE/SE/LE firmware extention) installed on it.Then get an original memory stick (256MB is enough) and also and extra battery.This of course involves you paying for the items you purchased,but it’s way better than paying someone for a freeware.Once you’ve got the items i mentioned,come here and inform me.I’ll then give you an excellent guide made by my friend (psp-hacks guy) which will help you make a Pandora’s Battery,Don’t’s n00b friendly.

    I’m willing to do it for free for you,but first of all,i’m in Selangor and also,i’m a student…no way for me to get to Penang.

  549. Playboy April 9, 2008 at 8:09 pm #

    canice,firstly i need to know if your firmware is 3.80 official firmware,or 3.80M33 (custom firmware).If it’s official firmware,yes once you insert a UMD which requires a higher version two play,it will update to the following firmware ONLY if you agree.It won’t do so automatically.If you’re on custom firmware,UMD updates are not a problem at all as upgrading to an official firmware from a custom firmware will only produce an error message saying (DADADA) which means Dark_AleX as a warning that you’re doing something stupid lol.Just to make it clear,a psp wouldn’t automatically update the firmware,it will only do so if you MAKE it do so.

    So don’t worry bro.If you have custom firmware,download homebrew and play it :)

  550. Playboy April 9, 2008 at 8:12 pm #

    Hey again.I’m fifteen today and i’ve decided to announce about my game which i’m still developing.It’s called Playboy’s Shooter and it’s a simple 2d game which i created for the psp.Planning to release it mid-May,so check it out once released! ๐Ÿ˜€
    I coded the game in C (Programming language) and i did it all myself ๐Ÿ˜€

  551. canice April 10, 2008 at 1:12 am #

    Thanks playboy,million thanks, mine is 3.80m33 by the way…. now i am rest assured… now i got one less worries… hope some one out there can help me with info on how to indentify recon set…. am worried mine is one….

  552. Playboy April 10, 2008 at 2:54 pm #

    canice,again don’t worry.A fake psp is very easy to spot.In fact,one would have to be REALLY stupid to be fooled by it..Trust me.A fake psp doesn’t even LOOK like a psp..It’s really light,ugly,can’t play psp games (Only 4 worse than gameboy games) and no other options.Just that.Doesn’t even have a menu lol.

  553. Egg April 10, 2008 at 5:59 pm #

    erm… playboy…
    wat is pandora battery???
    wat is the difference between pandora battery and normal battery???

  554. Playboy April 10, 2008 at 7:37 pm #

    Egg,a Pandora’s Battery is actually a normal psp battery that you get when you buy your psp.You can make a Pandora’s Battery by running the Battery Creator program on a homebrew capable psp(1.00/1.50/Custom Firmware).Once done,run the files required for the making of the Magic Stick.(Normal memory stick).This is actually the older method of making a Pandora’s Battery.The newer one is way easier,and better.

    U.P.M.S (Ultimate Pandora’s Memory Stick).
    Run this on a custom firmware psp,select the options you want,done!

    Pandora’s Battery is used to boot the psp into service mode instead of the usual flash 0.This means it would still boot the psp into the Pandora’s Menu even if your flash 0 is curropted (Brick).This is actually how sony unbrick consoles sent to them.This can also be used to install custom firmware on all psps.(Slim and fat).

  555. Parkdude April 10, 2008 at 10:25 pm #

    Hi Playboy, Happy belated birthday…..
    where r u staying… eager to meet u n get more advise directly, if possible to accompany me in buying a PSP then..

  556. Egg April 10, 2008 at 10:28 pm #

    erm… kind of blur…
    a homebrew capable psp???
    wat is time machine???

  557. Egg April 11, 2008 at 5:57 pm #

    one more thing…
    after i download a PTF theme, where should i placed it?

  558. Playboy April 11, 2008 at 7:42 pm #

    Egg,a homebrew capable psp means it’s a hacked psp (with either 1.00,1.50 or custom firmware).This means it has the ability to run games which are coded by developers using programming languages.Mine–> Playboy’s SHooter (Still making ) :)

    TimeMachine.It’s not really nessecary for you guys as it’s used to load older firmwares using a Pandora’s Battery.It’s used by developers who wish to test their code on different firmwares.For slim users,you can boot to a modified 1.50 firmware,3.40 custom firmware and a few other firmwares.It’s good,but i don’t recommend it for beginners.

  559. Playboy April 11, 2008 at 7:45 pm #

    Egg,place the .PTF file(s),in PSP/THEME.If that folder is not present,create it and make sure it’s in uppercase.(Capital letters).Folder name= THEME

    Then on your XMB,theme,choose it.

  560. Egg April 12, 2008 at 5:10 pm #

    thanks a lotsssssssss, playboy…

  561. Egg April 12, 2008 at 6:02 pm #

    hi…erm…would like to ask anyone (especially playboy)…

    erm, is it compulsory to get an UMD (original or download one???) for each psp package? i would like to buy one…but most of the shop just put the free games in memory stick,,,and the original UMD cost RM 1++ !!!

    so, why we nedd UMD since we already can put the game in memory stick?

    haa…another queations…is it the slim psp rite now have 1.5 kernel homebrew also? its hard to find the fat psp rite now…and what the latest custom firmware now?

  564. Egg April 13, 2008 at 9:47 pm #

    my current firmware is 3.71 m33-2, the ptf theme in this web -> required firmware 3.90m33, is it means that i hav to upgrate my firmware…
    will my psp get bricks when i make some mistakes during upgrading the firmware???

  565. arepeace April 14, 2008 at 5:41 am #

    hi…i jsut bought PSP slim n lite, full packkage for RM870…is it that reasonable price?
    Ive got a console, battery, charger, usb cable, screen protector, 4gb hi-speed memory stick, clear plastic case, psp pouch, earphone with remote controller, 10 free games, and lastly, one year warranty + free update/games for one year (he said that i can take all the game in their PC for free (about 400 games-just bring my harddisk there :))…if im not mistaken, my firmware is 3.9 (but the shopkeeper said that 3.7 is almost suite for all type of games…is it true?)…and im not sure if my psp can play any application (emulators etc…)…comment please…

  566. Playboy April 14, 2008 at 11:33 pm #

    Egg,i don’t advise you to upgrade your psp just for a PTF theme.Yes,if you’re unlucky,you might brick your psp.There are PLENTY of PTF themes for 3.71 firmwares.Egg,go to that very same site (consolespots) and hit the XMB link above.Then view the older pages,and you’ll find it.

  567. Egg April 15, 2008 at 2:47 pm #

    thanks for your advise…

    Hi Playboy.. i went to Sg Wang on the weekend and one of the seller there mentioned that there are 2 kinds of modified PSP console. One is ‘hardware modified’ and the other one ‘software modified’. The ‘software modified’ version is more expensive than the other. Is this true? If yes, how do i tell the difference (to prevent being short-changed)? Are there any adverse implications in terms of future software upgrades in both versions?

    Alternatively, can i buy a original PSP console and install the custom firmware myself? Thx.

  570. been April 16, 2008 at 2:21 pm #

    arepeace.. where did you buy your PSP package from?

  571. Playboy April 16, 2008 at 8:08 pm #

    apreace,if you firmware has the M33 extention in it,you can play emulators and homebrews.

  572. Playboy April 16, 2008 at 8:13 pm #

    afif,it’s not required to have a UMD on custom firmware in order to load games off the memory stick.3.52m33-4 firmwares and above have 99% game loading compatibility.So a UMD disc isn’t really needed.The psp slim doesn’t have the 1.50 kernel on it yet…unless you count Dark_AleX’s latest development…TimeMachine.It can load the 1.50 modified version,but i don’t really like it.As for fat psp’s,you can find it in Plaza Masalam Shah Alam.They still have it there.

  573. Playboy April 16, 2008 at 8:18 pm #

    been i don’t really get what you mean by software and hardware modded psps.A software modded psp means it’s firmware is hacked (Custom firmware installed).A hardware modded psp means it might have some hardware modifications like LEDs and some other crap stuff.Your idea is an official firmware psp and hack it yourself.That’s possible,if you have access to a psp with either 1.50 or custom firmware already.If no,then it’s better off to just get a custom firmware psp ๐Ÿ˜‰

  574. Playboy April 16, 2008 at 8:25 pm #

    Parkdude,i’d love to do so..but i’m just 15 and i’m dead sure my parents wouldn’t allow me to go out with a stranger..looking at the condition of the country.Parkdude,i’m sorry mate,i can help you here with your psp but going to shop with you,no i can’t. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  575. arepeace April 17, 2008 at 8:07 am #

    been… i bought it from a shop in Digital Mall, Seksyen 14 PJ…
    there was a shop on 1st floor (Brothers Game Enterprise if im not mistaken)

    go and check it out…

  576. been April 17, 2008 at 10:07 am #

    Thanks arepeace.. will definitely check that place out.

  577. been April 17, 2008 at 10:15 am #

    Thanks Playboy.. the shop owner at Sg Wang informed that the consoles will be opened and physical modification will be performed on the CPU for the hardware modified psps… he further adds that future upgrades are near impossible or very difficult..hence the cheaper price. honestly i think the seller is trying to pull a fast one on me.

    by the way.. keep up the good work.. its mind blowing how much you know about this stuff *salute*

  578. Playboy April 17, 2008 at 7:42 pm #

    been,lol.He really seems to be lying his ass off.Just get a normal psp slim or fat with custom firmware installed on it and enjoy!
    Thx for those kind words :)

    Also,The shop that arepeace recommended is pretty good.My brother got one from there.

  579. arepeace April 18, 2008 at 9:47 am #

    yupz playboy… i think so..the seller quite friendly too…
    oh, one more…is there any gameshark or somethng like that for psp?
    hehe…like to play with a cheat codes…especially when im play racing games….

    huh…my next target…maybe PS3…haha…juz need to wait 1 or 2 year to get a ‘reasonable’ price…the price is still killer rite now, especially for a student…

  580. arepeace April 18, 2008 at 9:59 am #

    hey anyone…can we discuss about psp games here?
    juz wanna know, can u recommend me the best psp games have u played?
    especially racing (NFS etc), rpg (Silent Hill, FF etc) or strategy (Warcraft, sims etc) games…got some prob to find the best one…haha…

    i juz play NFS carbon n Pro Street…but its not very good as the one that i played in PC…

  581. Playboy April 18, 2008 at 8:10 pm #

    been,that’s a pretty obvious lie by that shop owner.Sony underclocked the CPU on purpose and it can only be altered by a UMD game.You can set the CPU speed in your code.Example : Your XMB (Menu) speed is default,the game requires 333 to run well so the minute you run the game,the CPU speed will be changed according to the code.You’ll understand more if you’re into psp programming.There’s NO need for CPU modifications,lol since the psp CPU speed is good enough already.You can try different CPU speeds in your VSH menu (Press select or home depending on your custom firmware).

  582. Mel April 19, 2008 at 3:48 pm #

    Hey there!

    I’m planning to buy a psp sometime this month or the next but I want to know more about it so that I wouldn’t be conned.

    Anyways, I’m planning to buy it at Digital Mall since I’m too lazy to go to KL. Is there anything that I should know before I buy a PSP? Plus, I don’t really understand about the games and UMD. Oh and could a converted PSP play an original Japan game?

    I’m not really good at these programming stuff so yeah…

  583. Playboy April 20, 2008 at 1:19 pm #

    Hey Mel.Digital Mall is a pretty good place to get a psp.I believe the only have the psp slims there.A psp should cost around RM800 including all the accessories.This includes a pouch,a few games maybe (not UMDs,just iso game images),a screen protector,a 4gb memory stick(most probably fake) and a few other additional stuff.Buying a UMD isn’t required as the psp’s sold in Malaysia have custom firmware installed on it allowing users to play dumped UMD games.Don’t ask where to get them or how to dump a UMD here.The psp region isn’t really important because a psp no matter the region can play ALL the UMD games.Example a Japanese region psp can play American UMDs and so on.Only the UMD video requires the correct region but again,this isn’t important as you can convert your original DVD movies and watch them on your psp.Also,the psp region can be altered in the recovery mode settings.

    You also mentioned that you’re not good at programming.Don’t worry.It’s not important at all unless you want to code your own game.Programming skills isn’t required for a psp user.I’m coding my own game with my brothers face in it..haha ๐Ÿ˜€

    Mel,i’m pretty sure you might not understand a lot more about the psp,feel free to ask more questions :)

  584. are-yeed April 21, 2008 at 12:51 pm #

    saper tau harga psp skang nii….full package

  585. Playboy April 21, 2008 at 3:08 pm #

    are-yeed,sekarang harga psp agak murah berbanding waktu dahulu.Satu set psp (termasuk segala bahan keperluan) hanya berharga RM800 lebih.are-yeed,psp amat bagus,banyak fungsi. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Tanya jika anda kurang faham.

  586. axbycz April 21, 2008 at 10:49 pm #

    anyone knows where can i downgrade / install custom firmware in melaka? my psp slim is official version 3.80

  587. Shahiz April 22, 2008 at 11:39 pm #

    Will be landing in Kuala Lumpur on 25 May 2007 and will be there for two-three days. Am planning to buy a PSP Slim in Yow Fat Plaza. Can anyone send recommendations and current price?

  588. Playboy April 24, 2008 at 3:00 pm #

    acbycz,it’s a very simple process actually.First,you’ll need to get a psp with either 1.50 or custom firmware installed on it.Then,you need to download the U.P.M.S files and then you can make a Pandora’s Battery which can be used to install custom firmware on your psp.This would give you more features and advantages on your psp.

  589. Playboy April 24, 2008 at 3:03 pm #

    Shahiz,the current price of a psp (slim and fat) is about RM700 to RM800.Your psp should also come with custom firmware on it.(Example 3.90M33 firmware).You might get several extra accesories depending on your dealer.You should get a battery pack,a 4gb memory stick (Most probably a fake stick),a few games maybe,casing and a screen protecter.

  590. zoobank_93 April 30, 2008 at 2:38 pm #

    hello.anyone can help?wats the latest price for the normal psp value pack.not the psp slim.and where can i get ? .btw do u think if the price is like kononnya rm750 i can negotiate maybe at least rm680.thanks.

  591. Arniel May 1, 2008 at 1:33 am #

    to playboy- may i have your email address??? i just want to ask u about something which is not allowed here…. thanks… hoping for your immediate reply….

  592. Playboy May 1, 2008 at 2:05 pm #

    zoobank_93,It’s pretty rare to find psp fat’s now days as sony aren’t producing them in large numbers,but several shops still do have them so better get it before it’s too late.If you live in Selangor,you might want to check out Plaza Masalam which is in Section 9 right beside Concorde Hotel.I go there regularly and they still have fat psp’s with them.It costs around RM600-RM800 including a 4gb fake memory stick and several other extra acessories.

  593. zoobank_93 May 1, 2008 at 9:13 pm #

    fake memory card means what?not sony memory card?yes i live in game at least cost rm130 like that right?which shop in plaza masalam?theres a lot of it stalls there.

  594. Playboy May 1, 2008 at 11:06 pm #

    zoobank_93,go to the botto, floor,where you will see two game shops.Check both.And yes,brand new original UMD’s cost around RM200 ringgit.

  595. Charmander May 2, 2008 at 12:14 pm #

    im confuse with the fat n slim pros n cons.i dont own any psp but planning to get 1. the fat seems to have sturdier n nicer body built (my oppinient only), slim got twice the ram n got nice display screen.but what im concern is the seems to go towards the slim.this is really causing confusion in my decision to buy which 1.why i concern about the firmware? it is because of the software it supports. if use the old firmware i think the software for those firmware might not last long as the rapid upgrade version growth.its going to be hard to find the sw in the internet if that happen.
