    Hey all I ordered a used PSP 3000 Mystic Silver from Amazon for about $60. However I was sent an PSP 2000 Ice Silver instead. A bit annoyed because I hear the PSP 3000 has an amazing screen compared to the 1000 and 2000. The firmware it came with is 5.03. Should I send it back or not? I do plan on hacking it. Are there any advantages that the Ice Silver has over the Mystic Silver or vice versa.

    Im sure other members will have differing opinions than I do.

    The 200X is what I like to think of as the best of all 3 PSPs. It has the 64mb of RAM, is fully hackable (as long as you got an early one, at least thats how it used to be.) But now i think all of them are hackable. Yeah, 1000 screen VS the 3000 screen, the 3000 wins every time. But 2000 vs 3000, not so much. The 3K has some ghosting issues, even if it is brighter than the 2K.

    Form factor, the 2 and 3 are almost identical.

    As for not getting what you paid for... Depends. Maybe the seller didnt actually know the difference between the 2 and 3000 and made a guess based on it being slim. Or maybe he did and purposefully told you wrong. I dont know. I think I would keep it and not worry about it.
