    Well why not homebrew it, find out what you can put in and then pass it down to a little brother or friend. I handed my little bro his first PC to get him into PC gaming because I disliked the fact that he spends over $60 per game and only has a handful for the Xdung. I had a Dell Optiplex 330 stored in the closet, it was basically useless to me, had a ATI Radeon 260 and I got him a handful of games he chose from this previous winter sale on Steam such as Age of Empires 3,PvZ GOTY, Dead Island, L4Dead series, Portal series, and Half-Life 2 (the only one he didn't quite enjoy and I don't blame him, I hadn't played that game in ages myself that I kinda remembered it being more fun when I young). We now game like keyboard potatoes and he uses his console fairly less than ever. I also got him into emulation and had a good experience over all. I knew that telling him "This is now yours" felt a little offsetting because muh memories but after we cleaned it up and optimized it we had a good experience. Now I know this has nothing to do with a PSP or homebrew but I thought I might share with you my experience handing down good electronics. :)

    It's a shame I find myself in the same dilemma as you but with my new 3ds xl. Can't get a pinch of entertainment out of it, I have played lots of fucking games since 2011 and I honestly think there will never be another good title on it.

    I owned two psp consoles. The first one was a fat model, 10XX which got it in 2011, lasted like a year or so and then i sold it to a friend because... psp, you know. Then I bought a 3000 model back in 2014, and it happened the same fucking thing, I owned it for about a year or so and then I sold it because I didn't do shit with it, by far it was the worst portable I ever had. Though it had very good remakes like FFIV.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Btw the only games I played were:

    - MM: Maverick Hunter X
    - Mega Man Powered Up
    - Final Fantasy IV
    - Final Fantasy I
    - Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles (Best game on the console by far)
    - Darius Burst
    - Dissidia Final Fantasy (Just a bit)


    Aaaaaand a bunch of ps1 classics.

    Play games you haven't played. There's tons of it, I hardly doubt you've played most of it.
    Completely play all the top 100 PSP games.
    Donate it to someone or sell it. Up to you.

    Theres also this old homebrew I play from time to time,
    https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/resources/smashgp-full-pack.4548/
    I use it on ppsspp, but it should work on an actual psp.

    I know its shitty but I had fun playing it back on my 1.50 psp 1000 a long time ago. Recently made some stages and edited some stuff for it, might do more at some point or not heh.
