    No psp you buy now will be able to play anything until you downgrade, whether you will be able to downgrade or not depends on your firmware version. Typically, you will not know this until you have your psp in hand.

    Not true, Nicht. I remember there was a way of checking the barcode on the box and looking for a letter that corresponds to the firmware version (ie. 1.50 would show on the box as A, 1.51=B, so on) and if the letter was K or under, the PSP could be downgraded.

    You need to get your firmware down to 1.5 first before you can play any downloaded games. So chances are you will need to downgrade your new psp. However, if your psp comes with firmware 3.11 OR above, you are out of luck, as there isn't a downgrader yet.

    The following is a listing of what firmware each production run has in it. What you should be looking for is "K" or anything before that. Whit those ones you don not have to get the GTA:LC 2.0 game to downgrade, since 2.71 and earlier can just make due with files you get of the internet.

    A = 1.50
    B = 1.51
    C = 1.52
    D = 1.52
    E = 1.52
    F = 2.00
    G = 2.01
    H = 2.50
    I = 2.60
    J = 2.70
    K = 2.71
    L = 2.81
    M= 3.01 =>

    I didn't know they had those identification numbers for the newer firmwares. Now I do.
    Thanks
