    Hey,
    I want to buy my brother a PSP. They only have 3000s over here though.

    Does anyone know/remember their serial number or one that would "reveal" the firmware?
    I only have two options:
    1) Basic bundle
    2) RB:U bundle.

    Thanks!

    Buy off Amazon; just make sure to check the ratings so you know if they deliver as stated.
