The 2000 series has a Home button to take you back tot he XMB, 'the home screen'

The 3000 series has a 'PS' logo button instead.


Also, why do you want a 3000 series? 2000 series is much better..

As you can see from that the 3000 series screen is terrible! Plus the 3000 series feels somehow cheaper to hold.

Sorry but you have no idea what your on about. You can remove the settings of the newer screen which was meant to be better.

Also for 'homebrew' people as long as your not past a particular firmware which most likely if this is old stock it wont be then you will be able to play them still
#12
the particular firmware is 5.03
#13
This has been sold for £50 at WHSMITH last year. still a good price now though.

Sorry again but you CAN'T remove the interlacing problems of the 3000's inferior screen :whistling:

I have a 3000 and a 2000 and trust me the screen on the 2000 series is SOOOO much better.

'Also should note that when navigating the menus, the PSP-3000's display had interlacing-like artifacts when in motion, in Normal and Wide Color Space mode' Nasty....

I've got a 3000 and my nephew has the 2000, and we've always thought mine looked better. Can't say that I've noticed any scan lines at all - and for the first 6 months I never put the thing down playing games or watching movies, or watching the telly through my ps3/live tv.

Not saying they don't exist, and I'm just saying that I haven't noticed, so I wouldn't say you should factor it in on your decision.

I've never managed to hack my PSP - and I've always understood it was because I'm a complete idiot and updated the PSP the day I bought it, which instantly took it past the magic number of 5.03.

I've got to say, £100 doesn't exactly seem like a great deal. I've long thought about flogging mine so I can get a new sub 5.03 PSP, but £100 doesn't really encourage me.

I hate W.H.Smiths gaming deals, as the store in Nottingham has got sweet F.A of clearance stock, so not even worth checking lol

Hot deal though...

Hacked my 2000 version very easily, thanks to the people on this forum :-)

Just search for the thread about PSPs on ebay - brand new from orange - all the info is there.

You're right, £100 isn't really a great deal at all. I paid a little over that around a year ago. You need to get a pandora battery from DX if you want custom firmware on it, do a bit of reading. It's pretty easy to do. I have over 100 games for it on my laptop, whenever I travel to far away places I just load up 10 or so games onto the memory stick and it's happy travelling. It doesn't matter that your firmware was updated, you'll still be able to do it.

I've had both, and there really isn't as significant a difference as some people like to make out. Both of them are just fine.

I've done loads of reading and thought that pandora batteries weren't available for 3000s.
Can you point me towards where you got your if you've got a 3000 and you're using downloaded games? Would really appreciate it.

I think that you can only use something like ChickHen on the 3000 which only hacks it until its powered down, upon which you have to faff around hacking it again... but it is possible :thumbsup:
#22
Even that I thought was impossible on 6.x firmware.
I'd be happy doing that, my PSP hardly ever switches off totally, so if the hack stays through standby it'd be a result.
Everything I've read says it can't though - so if anyone has pointers I'd be made up.

If the video below is to be believed then something might be in the works for 6.xx firmware...

If it does then it will still probably be similar to the current ones for PSP3000 where the hack disappears after a full power down.
