As the title says really.............

Thing is i know nada about them - what should i be looking for? I dont really want to be spending a fortune on games - if you catch my drift..............

Whats the differences between a 1000, 2000 and 3000? Phat or slim n lite?

Oh and dont want to be spending a fortune on buying one either - found a 1003 giga pack with GTA for around £50-60 running firmware 5.00 m33 whatever that means!

3000's have better screens but are harder to put custom firmaware on.

Also umd bit was a bit flimsy for my liking. wouldnt buy a psp though over rated. get a 360.

Yes, because it's really easy to play your 360 when you're on the train :thumbsup:

Coz you can play that on the bus... :thumbsup:

On topic - 1000's are easier to mod, 2000's are considerably lighter (slim n' lite) you'll want 5.00m33 firmware or GENB 5.50 and a good 8gb card. Dealextreme sell micro to pro duo adaptors which will future proof your memory cards and work out cheaper in the long run.

3000's are fiddly to mod and have 'scan lines' - try somewhere like PSPhacks before you go and buy one as some of the newer motherboards are also difficult to mod..

ANd bear in mind that a typical newer PSP game will weigh in at 1gb so will take a while to download from torrent sites.

On the subject of consoles, buy a ps3, the 360 has no exclusives left and they're manufactured from kittens and eggshells...

already running

PS3
Wii
DS Lite
iPod touch 32GB

not really bothered about gettin an XBolloX

Just looking for something cheap-ish that i can use on the train/plane thats not as gimmicky as the DS. The iPod is ok for that kind of thing but I dont want my 5 year old near it!

Oh and cheers Flodd for the tips

If I get one running custom firmware already how likely am I to brick it? and are they un-brickable?

PS3 = Over Priced
Wii = Boring
DS = Just terrible not good at all.
Ipod Touch = Very over rated.

:p

There aint much bricking you can't undo with a Pandora and a magic memory stick, the earlier the model the better off you are typically... If you get one without CFW, you can always send it me and i'll do it or if your comfortable doing it yourself I'll lend you mine...

EDIT : Once you have CFW on it - updating it is as simple as donwloading and installing the option file... even when swapping from DA to GEN.
