    As the title says, my PSP 3000 needs a new shell. But all I can find are these awful Chinese knockoffs that never fit right and are made so poorly. Case in point, the blue shell I have on there now, has every problem from bad fitment to its own frame, cracking, paint peeling... Nevermind having to reuse the stock buttons because all of them always have terrible replacement button sets...

    Only places I can ever find anyone selling these will also only be shipping them from China, take two months to get here, and they're all such crap build quality. Why can't I find any good shells for this thing? My PSP looks and feels so awful now.

    Apparently, these are impossible to find. I have a 3000 that I would love to costumize using a shell and another E1000 (street) that I picked up for dirt cheap (20€) that needs a new glass front. I guess you guys didn't find anything? :(
