    Will a UMD Movie upgrade my firmware?

    I just bought a UMD Movie and I want to make sure it won't update my firmware.

    No, nothing will update your firmware without telling you first. You will never have your firmware updated without you knowing about it. There are only 2-3 games (not sure if Dead to Rights has it) games in the US that update firmware, and that's only to 1.5 anyway.

    Didn't the first US units ship with 1.5? Or do you mean the Jap one forces the update?

    Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition and also Dead to Rights upgrade your firmware to 1.5.
    Yes, the US units shipped with 1.5, so the update is only for the 1.0 (JP) models.
