    Hi,
    I'm wondering if a PSP can play videos natively, does it need hacking, or can it do it natively but a homebrew software gives it ability to load higher bitrate/res videos?


    Just wondering if I should get psp3000...

    Thanks.

    I know the PSP can natively, without hacking, run videos. I've done it a few times and it works wonderfully.

    I don't know anything about higher res videos though.
    I would really recommend you buy a PSP 2000 or 3000. It's a fantastic and especially cheap platform.

    The PSP plays MP4 natively. You just need to convert the video.
