    Hello! What would the forum estimate the value of this pre-production UMD to be?

    It's dated six months before Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories came out, so that's my guess as to what this is a fairly unfinished build of.

    I'd be happy to except I don't own a PSP myself.

    Would a retail PSP play pre-production UMDs or would it have to be a dev kit?

    Not a 100% sure but I've seen people say you can run most on CFW PSPs.

    I think you can play on a retail psp and the other way is extracting the iso on a computer and play it on a emulator but you would need a psp of course.

    Very glad to see this disc for the first time, i was looking for it too since ages :)
    You can play this disc on every console, retail or devkit. Eventually on an emulator too, but you'll to dump it first.
    If you want some help, just send me a shout.

    I've booted the UMD on a PSP with CFW. The UMD does not boot to playable code as it appears to have some kind of security protection.

    The contents have been dumped though and it's undoubtedly GTA Liberty City Stories. Here's a link to video of the UMD booting up:

    Note that the triangle only stops spinning when the Select button is pressed. All other inputs have no other effect.

    Here are a few screenshots:

    And here's a pastebin to the UMD's file structure, including directories and filesizes:

    I've just been looking through the ENGLISH.GXT file and it's got all the mission text, dialogue etc. in there.

    If there are any particular files worth exploring that I can post some samples from which might be of interest to the community, please let me know. It's possible that the code expects a security key on a memory stick to run straight off, but I'm assuming these files can still be investigated etc. now the contents have been dumped.
