Jumbo is the dealer in Dubai.

Knock off about 3 to 5 percent off the price quoted by them if you purchase it from any other smaller shop.

Check for international warranty and game compatibility.

I went at the end of October and every shop was 999 Dirhams. I bought two and they chucked in a couple of USB cables and two bags. Games were between 179 Dirhams and 210 Dirhams

Hope that helps

Hi,

I have read conflicting information about region encoding on the PSP. Can anyone that has a PSP clarify the situation?

If there isn't region encoding for the movies/games I'll be tempted to pick one up in Dubai in December.

Thanks.

But at one shop the attendant said that they sell dual compatible psp - american and european standard.

is there another standard?

just spoke to jumbo

it seems that the multi system is illegal here and you do not get a warranty

the system can be used in europe....

this is becoming a tad bit confusing.

When I am next at a toy shop, will ask this.

Need to pick up either a PSP or XBOX for my nephew (brat) which has better graphics?

Never took you for having anything useful to add to a thread Rosy. Funnily enough - I still don't.

You cant bear it that Des and I get on can you. Now dont provoke me anymore or poor truespeak will have to come to your rescue again. Go and do a bit of housework or something to get you out of your bad mood.

I wouldn't want to see you and Des get it on thank you very much. I'll leave the Discovery Channel to deal with that issue.
