    Yeah, I'm pretty happy I got it, my uncle who just came back from Saudi Arabia bought me one as a gift (although if I could choose, I would've chosen a Wii instead). At first, I wasn't sure if it was the Slim or not, since I only held a PSP once and they looked so similar (I got a Piano Black one), but the box said PSP-2004, and it had Connected Video options so I knew it was a Slim.
    Unfortunately, he got the Core version, so I only got the PSP itself, and he also bought a soccer game, World Tour Soccer 2. Fortunately, all PSPs sold in SA are usually already hacked, and this was the case here.The firmware version was 3.90 M33-2.

    I have a few questions of course [​IMG]
    What Memory Stick size do you recommend I should buy? And is there something like a converter for MicroSD cards?
    What are the must-have games and homebrew?

    .. But I still want a Wii :/

    Thanks!

    4gb is enough for most people. I wouldn't recommend those MicroSD to Pro Duo adapters if you can afford real Pro Duo's. The speed difference between them is fairly great. Check out this thread for which sticks have the best speeds: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=92177

    I have 2 real pro duo memory sticks
    4gb for emulators, other homebrew and PSX games
    8gb for PSP games

    Everything works full speed so i can recommend this.
    Also dont forget to update to 4.01 M33-2 [​IMG]


    And for musthave games and homebrew check the essentials here and here.

    I've been playing on 4GB Class 6 Transcend MicroSDHC without any problems using a convertor. I have one 4GB Memory Stick Pro Duo for God of War and Rockstar games.
