    I used to use my PSP 1000 a lot. But that was before I lost the battery, the memory stick and the charger and went back to playing my DS. I just found the charger and that reminded me to get my PSP off the shelf. It's hacked, and running cfw 5.02 GEN-A. I'm going to have to go buy another memory stick and battery. So can you guys enlighten me... What have I missed in the scene since 5.02 GEN-A came out? Any major new developments I should be aware of? What cfw should I put my PSP on?

    Edit: I see there's been some developments in emulation. Sweet.

    Newest GEN Firmware is 5.03 GEN-C but you must patch or use a plugin for various new games (KHBBS etc.)
    There is a new firmware 5.03 Prometheus which should run all games including 6.20+ but it has some other compatibility problems.

    You have not missed much.

    Edit: Just realised you have a 1000.
    Newest GEN firmware for THAT is 5.50 GEN-D3. its nice and permanent and runs most games. Apart from 6.20+ again requiring patching.
    Once again that is a permanent 5.50 Prometheus that works by adding extra files to the GEN firmware (basically patching IT rather than the game) It would not work on my 1003 though [​IMG]

    Some hot games that've recently been released include Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, Persona 3 Portable, Hot Shots Tennis, and a lot more.

    There's also gonna be a lot of great games coming in the near future, like The 3rd Birthday, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, Valkyria Chronicles 2, and my personal favorite, Phantasy Star Portable 2.

    I want a new memory stick and battery, but I also need an external HD. (My favorite private torrent site is going freeleech for a whole week. I'm gonna need a LOT of space.)

    What batteries can a 1000 use? Are they still officially retailed?

    PSP 1000s can use PSP 1000 batteries. Slim batteries (and I think brite) will simply fall out of the battery slot.

    From what I've heard finding an official 1000 battery is almost impossible, I keep seeing people with ones they got online that only last 15 minutes or so.

    I have a Pisen battery off Dealextreme for PSP-1000 that works very well. Its just the standard 1800mAh but it lasts very well in my opinion. Pretty cheap too. Will try and find a link at some point.
