    Do you want it to be english or would you consider a japanese console? If your happy with japanese try renchi.com

    Do English games still work on a Japanese console or would you have to allows buy from this site etc? Are there any other benefits or downsides to buying a Japanese console.

    I won't guarntee but I'm pretty sure english games will play, but UMDs won't. (google it to be sure on that) However to counter that problem you can downgrade the psp. which will then make it multiregional and allow you to play homebrew and pirated movies.

    The other downfall of a japanese console, is their select button is a different button (cant remember which) but if you play with it like that since you first get one, you won't know the difference, you'll just then find it arkward to use a friends machine as your used to pressing a different button. Yet again this can be changed by downgrading and putting custom firmware on it.

    On the plus side however not only are the japanese consoles cheaper but they have a better screen then the english ones.

    If you plan on leaving it as it is, I'd say get English, but if you plan on downgrading and putting it on custom firmware to play homebrew etc I'd say get Japanese since game/UMD compatability would no longer be an issue.

    Yes.English games do work on Japanese consoles.:thumbsup:
    Infact, the PSP is oficially "region free for UMD games".
    It is locked for UMD movies tho. This probably is the only drawback.

    Cheers.
