I've got a PSP 1001 that I bought off a friend a few years ago. I hardly played it, and it sat in a storage for about 4 years without ever being turned on. I recently took it out and checked it since there were some RPG's that I really wanted to play on it. The battery is completely dead, and won't charge past 0%, requiring me to play with it plugged in. It is VERY hard to find an OEM Sony battery online and I have not had any luck. I did think about purchasing a generic battery, but have read on forums that most don't have much luck with them. So the question is, I am debating getting a PSP 3000 at Target to just eliminate my battery problem and just have something brand new. But it does almost seem like a waste since I already have a PSP 1001 that is in pretty decent shape (everything works, no dead pixels, etc.). Also, the only thing that I am concerned about is that the PSP 3000 is not hackable. I love playing emulators and using ROMs on the PSP. For PSP games, I have UMD's for everything so a UMD drive is a must. Also, some games on the PSN such as Final Fantasy 7 really appeal to me (and my PSP 1001 is on 5.50 Prometheus 4, so no PSN). What do you guys think?
