just out of curiosity, why is the screen made by samsung? doesnt sony make the screen by themselves? as far as I know sony is japanese and samsung is korean and they are rivals.

Actually, all the U.S. Sony PSP's have the screen made by Samsung; Sony changed from the Sharp screens to the Samsung version because the Samsung unit is cheaper, and supposedly less prone to dead pixels.

The Japanese PSP's are assembled solely in Japan, while the U.S. version is built from partially in Japan, and partially in China (I believe final assembly of Japanese parts takes place in China).

There really is little difference between the Japanese version and the U.S. version; region encoding only applies to the movies on UMD, not any of the games. The value pack does include a 32 MB Memory Stick, plus a soft carrying case, headphones / remote control (wired) etc. So a Japanese version WILL NOT play North American movies on UMD, if that's a concern for you.

It's a fair deal for the price, if you're after all the accessories. From a technical perspective, there is no difference in the units. ALL new Sony PSP's are using the Samsung displays, not just the Japanese versions.

That being said, Sony is apparently not honoring the warranty on ANY PSP's for ANY number of dead pixels. I'm not sure if they've changed this stance in the last couple of weeks, but as of late March, that was their position.

Actually, that's not entirely true. 802.11 spec has different channels (some overlap) for different countries.

Just because something is "WiFi Certified", does not mean it will automatically work in each and every country that you might be travelling in. There are different regulatory bodies for different countries (Industry Canada for example, and the FCC in the U.S.).

In some countries, 2.4 GHz is a licensed band, and WiFi isn't allowed at all there.

$360 is a fair price for a unit imported, but you can buy a North American version cheaper. I can buy a Japanese PSP Value Pack for roughly $2000 HKD in Tsim Sha Tsui, plus each game goes for between 350 and 450 HKD. $360 CDN is a fair price for the unit in that sense.

But plenty of people are selling used / nearly new Sony PSPs that are North American (regiod coded for North American movies) for roughly $300; many for between $250 and $300.

Unfortunately, there is no advantage to the Japanese version over the U.S. version. And you lose the ability to play North American movies (should you ever want to) with the Japanese version.

I might be interested at $300, but that's close to what I'd be topping out at.
