Buying a PSP slim and lite **UPDATE***

Found 14th Sep 2009
Bit random, but someone at my work is selling the above, comes with a 4 gb memory card. He's asking £80. What would be reasonable for me to offer.

I'm not desperate for it by any means, going on holiday to Cambodia next month and thought it would keep me amused on the flight.

I was thinking £50 or £60. As far as I'm aware it has no accesories or games, just charger.

He's now saying: "Ok, he's come back and said: 'comes with charger usb cable n box, dont think ever got manuals with it but i'll check, 1 game with box: Killzone Liberation, 4gb memory card n soft carrying pouch'" How much is all that worth? Thanks everyone!

He says it has custom firmware, what's that? Not the official software?

Custom firmware is awesom, allows you to play "backup games" pm me for more info.

Have £60 cash in your hand (with a tenner reserve in your pocket) & wave the bundle in front of your colleague.

Tell him that you're going to go to GAME or Gamestation on your way home this evening (or tomorrow evening... whatever) & buy a handheld console with the cash if he doesn't sell to you.

(Only bring out the reserve tenner if you absolutely have to).

Good luck.

Another query guys: the sale of the other PSP fell through, so I'm looking at one on gumtree now. It's black, phat, comes with charger and one game (need for speed most wanted).

I've bartered the guy down to £50. Does this sound like a good deal? I know I'm going to have to buy a memory card and not overly interested in the game. But what does everyone think?

Hi, I managed to buy a PSP slim & lite from Gumtree for £70, almost brand new with no scratches. It also came with ridge racer 1, everbodys golf, Tekkan and Daxter.

Also, if you do find one then a good case can be brought from HMV: -

The case is actually the official liciensed one, deluxe game traveller (seel for £15 everywhere else): -

I use hard metal cases for my many PSP consoles (like eBay Item #400069560882). It means I can stack the consoles on top of each other in a pile.

And one of my kids uses this one...

Did you pick up any game titles?

Do you need any recommendations?
