voted hot! :)

Great price and very stylish in red.

Never been interested in one of these before (married with kids). Just for educational purposes, is it possible to play backup games on this? Just so that I don't damage the originals on my travels.
#4
Thanks, I've been waiting to buy a cheap PSP 3000 as a back up to my original PSP 1000, so I can play my old PSP games :)

Pity it's not black, but can't resist at £84. Ordered X)

i think you will have to jailbreak your psp to do this..

Ta. Just been doing a bit of background reading. Can't believe the psp came out in 2004. It's older than some of the fluff in my belly button. Think I'll wait for the newer (and no doubt more expensive) psp.

Thanks. My son has just about destroyed his old one.

Im not sure if things have improved, as got one for a nephew about a year back, but at that time the only way to achieve this was to install software (from internal memory card) every time the Psp-3000 was switched off. But of a pain but do-able.

It's not that much of a pain, since you only have to re-flash it when you do a hard reset/power-off. A soft reset keeps the custom firmware in memory. And things have improved; permanent flashes are here already, and more are being developed for the PSP-3000.

Because consoles don't automatically become obsolete when a successor arrives. The NGP may end up being prohibitively priced (it certainly won't be £84) and will take some time to build up a decent catalogue of games. This is cheap and has a great range of titles available at knockdown prices, both aspects which the NGP won't be able to compete with for a considerable time after its launch.

Hot deal, if i didn't already have a 1000 and a Go i'd be all over this.

Despite being quite old the PSP has excellent performance and was well ahead of its time. Compared to the 3DS it has both advantages and disadvantages and compared to the DSi range and below absolutely massacres them technically. Of course its all about the games and there are loads of them plus homebrew for emulators, games and other stuff. You can even play your favourite Nintendo games on it. There is even an N64 emulator but its not quite fast enough with sound but there is the possibility of optimisation achieving full speed later as its not far off.

I have to say though that I use my DS more, mainly because the PSP battery runs out quicker. Even if Sony launch the NGP at £200 retail it will be sometime before a great selection of games are available.

The PSP is the number one console in japan sales wise at the moment.

Lastly its sad to say the sony keys have been cracked and you can download pirate games that work without any modification required on the psp itself. The pirate games come presigned to work. This may be fixed if you update the firmware though.

No memory stick.



Thanks, pity though :( Need to find a cheap large capacity one now. Anyone know a good source, or is it just eBay?
#20
Don't buy a memory stick from ebay. They are mostly fakes. I got mine from there and after a few months it lost half its capacity. It still works years down the line, but is around 800 meg and not the 2gb that I thought I was buying.

Buy direct from amazon/play (not the market sellers)

Love my psp slim to bits, get it hack it sorted!

I for one am not interested in the NGP. I only want the PSP 3000 as a backup device for when my PSP 1000 dies, as I have a load of games.

For a handheld with that much power I can't see the point in a tiny screen. Better to buy the iPad 3 that will be released a month later IMHO. It will equal the NGP's power, but have a bigger screen.

Basically, I'm happier with a huge screen to play PS3 games on, not a tiny one.

When it comes solely to portable gaming the overpriced iPad won't stand a cha.ce against the NGP. Killer titles, dual analogues, quad-core processor, a 5inch OLED screen, AAA titles plus cheaper. I don't know anyone who uses the iPad purely for gaming anyway.
#25
iPad games average around £1 each. NGP games will be £30 or more. That's all there is to it in comparing them.

Same reason why the 3DS is not doing as well as expected. Pity, as I bought one. i.e. iPhone games average 59p each and plenty have as much content as a number of the full price 3DS games.

Besides, how exactly is the iPad overpriced? It's cheaper than all other comparable tablets?

IMHO the NGP will be DOA.

aGreed the ipad is cool and all but i just dont see the point of it as it cant replace my iphone, desktop or laptop. I will have to be VERY VERY rich before i deside to waste my money on that.
As for th NGP, i think it will struggle as it faces soo much competition.
#27
I think theres a place for both NGP and 3DS I just don't think portable consoles our quite as important as they used to be. The NGP is very powerful more powerful than any ipad and I think it justifys a £25-30 game price for major titles. I do think the small downloadable games need to be more competitively priced with apple products as they are very similar. Not a fan of 3DS game pricing most of the games are a complete ripoff. The PSP has enough great games to merit purchase and should keep you entertained for some time on the move same as the original DS series.

Do you know the average price of Android-based games?

Yes I accept it will be less than the iPhone's 59p. But there's a reason for that :p There's fewer, and fewer that are as good.

Pattern, I agree, the iPad can replace none of those devices. It's a luxury "desire" item, not a "need" item. A Win7 tablet can replace a notebook though I reckon.

Anyway, this deal for the PSP 3000 is hot, and I bought one - thanks OP X)

If you want to pay 59p for a game, you will get a game that's worth 59p.
Please don't compare iOS games to full feature games developed to home and portable consoles.

Why not compare them?

For example Pilotwings - a premium Nintendo title I bought. Compare that to World of Goo, or Plants vs Zombies on iOS, both of which were 59p. No comparison for gameplay or depth.

Nintendo and Sony's high price portable gaming price model is rendered obsolete by iOS and Android portable pricing.

Thanks, just got one, any good reccomendations for cheap games and places to get them?
Not looking for best epic games, just some time fillers for travelling etc

Oh wow, that's some funny stuff :lol

Collected mine too today :D

Surprised by how much smaller and lighter it is compared to my PSP 1000.

Good games include the God of War ones, LocoRoco and the last Metal Gear Solid one. Peacewalker I think? Patapon 1 is a good time filler too.

You can also get 2 free ones from PSN as compensation soon.

A lot of ios/android games are excellent and just as good as some full price psp/ds/3ds games but there is a level of ambition of some psp/ds/3ds games that you just don't get with ios and android although these games are in the miniority. I've got an android tablet, psp and ds lite and they all provide excellent gaming experiences but for puzzle games, basic arcade games etc android is incredible value but some nintendo and psp games are a class above and android doesn't even come close.
