    Well as most of you know my psp got damaged with liquid thanks to my cousins a few weeks back. Well I got a screwdriver and opened it up trying to see if the damage was between the screen and plastic cover but unfortunatley it was'nt. The card reader was also damaged and I could tell this because not only was it not working properly but there was some sticky goo on it which showed that the sprite had worked its way in there. Anyhow I acidentally broke one of the tabs on the inside to lock the screen in place which means I can no longer get picture by connecting my screen to the system. Now I've decided to take it completley apart and use it for spare parts. What parts should i take if any?
    Anyway I've decided to get a completley new psp although I'm not sure what model to get since I'm not sure if I want to download games or buy them since I've always been a supporter of sony. I also like people being able to see the cases of my games to know I actually own them. At the same time I was thinking about downloading the japanese games and buying the american ones. If I want to do something like this what version should I get?

    probably a psp 2000 would suit your needs more it has the extra ram on board and has tv connectivity just buy a used one if you want to be able to play japanese backups.

    psp 3000 since you want to buy games but make sure its on version 5.03(or something like that) so that you can soft mod it since you want to download jap games.

    Well can't you just downgrade by connecting it to the computer or something?

    Nope, if it were that easy, people would be, you know, DOING IT ALL THE TIME.

    sounds like a decent deal if it's in a good condition.

    Yeah I'd go with a 2000 and thats sound good like dicemaster said. That's what I went for when my 3000 broke and it was a good choice.
