Does anyone know if there is a way to bypass regionrestrictions on a PSP? I just bought one and my wikipedia-fu told me that it has regional restrictions. The problem is that I boght it here in Japan, but I'm only staying here for a year, so...

Any ideas are welcome, it would be awesome if someone knows how to play like emulated games on it (which I've also heard is possible). You know, old NES and SNES classics. Tell me! I will be thankful!

(btw, I did search and didn't find anything so... And my researching skills does not surpass the ordinary persons wikipedia-fu)

P.S. If anyone starts a DS vs PSP discussion I will kill those.
