    If you have a friend in the States or happen to find one, the PSP Go dedicated cradle is a great way to may your PSP Go output via component/AV (scart) to a TV and charge at the same time. This lets you use a PS3 controller for the games, which IMO is a lot better :P

    Apart from that, I'd get a proper screen protector. I've got a Zagg Invisible Shield on mine, but for example Hori does fantastic protectors (have a Hori one on my PSVita and it looks and work great! Probably even better than a Zagg screen because of the touch screen on the PSVita).

    A pouch or carrying case is a nice way to keep the console from getting too dirty or damaged while in transport. I just ordered on from dx.com and it works well enough. Not much of a market for the PSP Go in the EU after they stopped selling it a few years back. That's one of the reasons eBay or the US in general (Amazon.com) is a great place to look for items. Postage is a pain, but if you have a friend over there, the postage is quite often free in the states. After that, it's a whole lot cheaper to send them over the Atlantic vs waiting for a local shop to ship them. :)

    Many thanks for your answer.
    Recently i got a cradle for 9€ and a component cable for the same price, but i don't knew that i can connect to tv and charge at the same time :P
    About the protectors, i got the unit with screen ones and a rigid plastic one too in a pack, so i think that only need a bag to complete my go-system. GREAT

    What is a Dual Shock 3? Is it a controller like DualShock on PSX? :blink:

    A PS3 controller. Use the cradle and AV cable to connect the PSP Go to a TV and use bluetooth to connect the controller. Now you have a PSP with a proper controller and big screen. Normally the Bluetooth eats up the battery of the Go pretty fast, but with the charging cradle with AV out, it'll keep charged even though bluetooth is on. Otherwise there is no real point in having a controller for longer sessions. Not entirely sure about this, but the PSP Go lets you map the Dpad to the slider. This leads to FFVII and such games released pre-analog times to work with an analog. This could probably be used with the PS3 controller too :3

    Though Sony basically has us by the balls, might as well try to grab a Memory Stick M2 to put in it. The extra storage really helps make a difference, and for the most part, even without any acceleration from CFW, it loads most games on par with the speed of the Go's internal NAND memory.

    Another would be the trio of the official Cradle (plus PSP-style AC adapter), Component Video Cables (for playing on a big tv), and a spare ps3 controller to pair up with the handheld in this manner. Officially, you'd need a ps3 as an intermediary to assign the controller to pair with your PSP go.

    I just wish there were some extended batteries for the Go that could say, replace the stock battery. I admit I kinda got to enjoy having an extended battery on my older Android phone thoroughly.

    In theory Go can use other pad apart from PS3 ones (with bluetooth of course), nop? Or is mandatory a ps3 pad?

    Well, in theory a PSP go should be able to let me use a stereo bluetooth headset to play the audio through that way. But that hasn't worked for me, either.
