Pre-production discs on the PSP are very common, but I found this nice oddity:

This is a pre-production of the disc bundled with the press kit and is a slightly different and earlier build compared to the release version:

Nothing extraordinary, but a fun find nevertheless.

Do these pre-production discs work on a retail PSP, or do they require a modded one? I was tempted to buy some of those in the past, but never did.

I remember running some pre-release UMDs on stock PSP. But well... modding any PSP is as easy as pie, it's just a softmod. There's no reason to keep PSP you actually use stock.

I have a 2004 with a CFW flashed onto it. However, I found it to be much less stable than a stock one, so I'm not using it much. Unless the UMD drive is broken or you want to run emulators, a CFW doesn't seem to make sense to me. Not for the cost of stability anyway.

I prefer playing UMD discs on my second, unmodded PSP.
