A good deal for a used psp 3000 in WHITE. However, there other deals going for used psp at a fair price.
The next deal is at cex. If you dont care what condition you want your PSP, cex have a discount range for the psp 3000 at £75 which means its most likely to have marks on the screen:
uk.webuy.com/pro…001

Theres a mix range of colours so your not stuck with a colour you dont want. Theres a few silvers 3000 in boxed if your lucky.
The box condition ones are very good. I just got my 3003 in Black today from cex with firmware 6.31 on mine. WIth no marks on the screens.
I just prefer the box condition ones from cex because they are less likely to get marks on the screens:

Sorry about the confusion dude
The other reason why got mine from CEX was because it was the cheapest to get it in black
But again, its all down to preference of the condition if you want it bad or not.
To make the firmware issue even harder, I just tried to play a newish PSP game: Persona 3 portable euro edition and it now wants me to download the latest firmware 6.37.... It will not even play without the new firmware... period

does anyone know how to bypass the update firmware just to play the game? Or would I need to go down the route of CFW? argh! I have been searching for answers only to come across something called USB version fake? But do I need to install CFM to get that working with the USB fake?

My 8 year old son is looking for a cheap PSP. I was gonna get a 1000 off ebay for about £40 - any reason why this is worth twice as much to an 8 year old with no plans to hack?

Theres a few differences between the psp's:

I think the obvious one is, it has a new screen and has a built in mic.
In short, I brought mine over the Phat and 2000 because it had a much better screen but I am seeing some scanlines on mines. I found that, if you tone down the contrast less, it less noticeable but its still kinda of there. The 3000 also has a TV out which I am looking forward to use if I ever do buy the cables X)
I miss the UMD eject button on the 1000

You should get some good deals on ebay or try either your local cash converters or cash generator.
