    Hi everyone.
    Im getting a PSP.

    Now im just thinking of. What should i get?
    Pendora wont be a problem for me i now exactly what to do.

    But its more what im going to chose.

    Either:
    A used PSPFat
    A used PSPSlim

    Or a new boxed PSPSlim.

    Im a little short on money.. i only got 5000DKR right now and a brand new PSP slim is 1400DKR.

    And with custom firmware... do you need a UMD to play ISO's?

    PSP 2000 Series=Slim btw

    You do not need a UMD to play any ISOs but the video ISOs, but their's little point to those, just use MP4 videos.

    I'm getting a psp slim soon myself and I just wondered if you get the daxter entertiainment pack, and you want to play the psp on a tv, do you have to get seperate av cables or do they come with the sytem? I would like to know before I get it this june... [​IMG] And do I have to update the firmware in the psp, before I play games on it?

    Right now i think the one i want the most is a slim.

    A New Black Slim would cost me 1400DKR.
    I found a used Silver PSP slim with one game (Daxter) for 1000DKR but it may be a stolen PSP....


    *Edit* Should my post not been merged???

    *Edit 2* Screw the used PSP.
    I just found out in stores i can get a brand new PSP Slim in black for 1299DKK (271$) and then its brand new and i dont have to worry about if its stolen or something.

    I eBayed a used PSP Slim. Works fine, although I had a problem with the MS provided (was a fake). Also for the record, you do not need a UMD to play ISOs, and CFW v3.90 M33-3 has improved compatability rates when playing without UMD inserted, however there are still some unpatched ISOs that the M33-3 has trouble playing without UMD.

    Search around for the feedback forums for CFW for more details.

    I dunno, I love my Phat. Thew slim feels kinda cheap... like as in cheaply made. But that's just me.

    In truth, I actually have both. My brother pestered me for one, so I got him the cheapest I could find (providing he paid me back someday). Compared to the slim, the phat seems needlessly heavy, although the phat has a better UMD carriage and bigger battery capacity. My phat also seems to have a loose battery cover, but that might just be me. I prefer slim.

    Nah mine feels cheap too. Got it two weeks ago. Still don't know whether it was worth it.
