No, the 3000 is pretty locked down, but Programs can now be signed to run n the latest firmwares if you know what you're doing.

Probably because the black is more desireable than the red, besides the specs look exactly the same!

Does anyone have a voucher for free delivery with tesco direct??

Not true.

If on official firmware 5.03 or below then it could run 5.03 HEN or if on 6.35 ot could run 6.35 PRO B2 (or something along those lines). Its still better (and cheaper) to buy any 1k series or hackable 2k series to install full cfw M33 or GEN with the Promeuthus plugin.

I've got a psp-3000 running 6.35 pro b3 and its ok. I'm running most things without problems and like connecting the psp to a tv occasionally for big screen gaming. I also have a PSP1000 model I'm selling and the difference between a full custom firmware and pro b3 isn't a big deal. If the battery completely discharges or I crash the psp I have to load a quick re-enabler program that takes about 20 seconds. I'm keeping the psp-3000 over the psp-1000 due to the better screen, tv output, thinner size and surprisingly the slowdown I was getting on certain games with the psp-1000. For example super stardust has slowdown on the psp-1000 but none on the psp-3000. I think this is either because the psp-1000 only has 32meg of memory compared to 64meg with the psp-3000 or that the psp-3000 runs happily at 333mhz where as the psp-1000 may default to 222mhz. I'm not sure but its harder and smoother on the psp-3000.

Probably the psp-2000 is the one to get with a custom firmware. The only issue is I think the tv output is inferior to psp-3000 unless you run some sort of patch. PSP-3000 plays games on tv no problem but I think the psp-2000 only does via component. I like to use s-video on the front of my tv.

not that geart, paid £80 for a silver one almost 9 months ago

Not GEART at all, I think you'll find haha

It'll be appreciated if anyone could update which version is the psp on when received.

True.

I've always put off getting a 3000 as I've always favoured the full custom firmware over the light custom firmware, however, since the PS3 (and PSP keys) have been found the 'new' 6.35 PRO B3 light custom firmware seems to boast some pretty top notch features.
I do have a Slim & Lite 2000 which seems to be the best of both worlds and with a component cable can use tv-output fine I would get a 3000 but with the NGP around the corner I'll stick with the 2000
