v1.00 Firmware PSP Compatibility List

As I've mentioned before, Sony are trying to put an end to the practice of running unencrypted PSP programs (ie. homebrew) by way of mandatory firmware updates in new PSP games. While running homebrew is now possible with v1.50 PSPs (via the "swaploit"), it's still only really user-friendly with the original v1.00 Japanese PSP. Many v1.00 PSP owners have already bought a second PSP to play new games on, allowing them to keep their first PSP in its original state. If you have a v1.00 PSP, you might want to know which games you can play that won't try to update your firmware.

To that end, I've compiled what I believe is the first complete list of all PSP games that will run on the original v1.00 firmware. So if you have a version 1.00 PSP and want to keep it that way, you won't be playing any games on it that aren't on this list. Sad but true.
