How much is a used PSP worth these days? (no extras)

I'm after a cheap PSP I can mod and play around with. I'm wondering the average price these days? I don't see that much advantage buying a 'Slim' PSP over the old 'fat' one, unless anyone can tell me otherwise?!

Cheers

I saw a psp in my local cash converter for 70 quid the other day.

£80 at cex :thumbsup:

A phat one will cost you approx £55 upwards, a slim & lite £80 upwards.

The slim & lite isn't worth the premium in my opinion.
The only thing that I use on mine is the ability to charge with USB, I have never used the TV out.

The battery life is better with the Phat.

psp is on one of my buys this year, purely down to its cf capabilites

You can charge the fat PSP up via USB now (might need custom firmware? not sure though), or via an adapter cable.

Cool, I didn't realise Sony restricted this. Good to know I'll be able to charge it via USB after firmware modding as I expect to mess about with it a lot on the road (where a 12v to USB socket is always available!)

I'm gonna take a look in town this week for a cheap 2nd hand one else go on ebay. I was gonna look for 'bricked' psp's on ebay that can be fixed with a Pandora but it seems everyone and their mother's are already onto this.

Shame that a used PSP is virtually the same price as a NEW DS - I personally think the DS is streeets ahead of the psp as a new handheld console, the games are sure as hell a lot more innovative. But as the PSP is so moddable it'll prob be worth it.

Thanks for the replies

You can't charge a Phat one via it's USB port to my knowledge. Do you have a link?

The DS and the PSP are completely different machines. It's like comparing a Wii to a PS3, they are equally good at what they do for different reasons.

Ebay is the best place atm- saw a mint boxed PSP with 14 boxed games go for £105 inc postage during the week there- sell the games for a fiver each and you've got a £35 psp...

he might mean that, the usb plugs into PC and then have 2 parts, one usb connection and other psp charger. i hadna logic3 version of this.

I sold a brand new pink psp with 4 brand new games and an accessorys pack and got just less than £100 for it so ebay will probably be your best bet unless you find a great deal somwhere else

Removed a few posts - no trading in the misc forum - if people want to sell, please do so in the correct forum.
