    Yes it seems that many UK shops will not be stocking it and EB Games here and
    in OZZ as well.

    This device does not have a UMD drive.

    The bad:
    Pricey, despite lack of touch screen and second analog stick; smaller screen
    (but same resolution); awkward placement of analog stick, volume, and display
    controls; unable to play UMD games or use old PSP accessories; uses obscure
    and expensive Memory Stick M2 format for memory expansion; battery not
    user-replaceable; slow download times for large games.



    Sony gone mad on Piracy, like they are with region locking, and there famous
    RootKit.

    Plus they block you for writing your own games, but there are many Hack for
    the PSP to get over that..

    No, I would say they are responding to the unrealistic desire for
    downloadable media, which in-forces region coding. Both the PSP and
    PS3 are region free for disc based games (well actually they are
    region free for downloadable games too if you have an overseas PSN
    account)

    And Sony didn't have the rootkit, you would be thinking of SonyBMG

    no umd drive means the retailer can't sell games - that's where the
    money is. Not surprising then that EB and the likes won't sell it.
