I checked with Sony world. They are not aware of Sony PSPs. Some one in Radio House replied that SONY PSPs are not officially sold in India.
But thse are easilly available in e-bay. The url is eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

I am interested in SONY PSP and UMD movies. Whom can I contact in Bangalore?
What is the future of SONY PSPs as video players and audio players?

i m from bangalore too and i m having a japaneese version of PSP ie PSP1000 and my firmware version is 2.80. In this i can play only Region 2 versions of movies and musics only and i can play any regions games. i was also in search for UMD's and i found few in ebay.in but there are few Region 2 movies available. The Region 2 movies are for Japan , Euope and UK.
There is no official release of PSP in India , if that happens it will be Region 5.
You can buy UMD online buy visiting http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-14-71-7o-49-en.html
.There is no import duties in India for cd-roms and softwares so no worries for importing. For more informations keep in touch
You can purchase the UMD games from PlanetM Brigade Road and also from Gandhi Nagar Gray Market
Thanks for the info! Really helpful.
My friend was asking for the ver 1.5. Where can it be downloaded from?
You can not roll back from existing firmware to 1.5 , but you can downgrade the existing version to 1.5. Its depends up on your existing firmware version of PSP. If you have v2.60 or low you can downgrade to 1.5. Please check your friends PSP version and get back to me. I will assist you.
I am having SONY PSP of 2.6 version. What advantages and disadvantages of downgrading / or upgrading to 1.5 or 2.8 versions respectively?
Once down graded from 2.6 to 1.5 can I upgrade to 2.6 and 2.8 version again? or is it irreversible?
Have you checked with the Sony World store in Bangalore? You should get the PSP there along with the movies.
