    im getting a psp these days, and i want a suggestion wich one is better, wich one is more comfortable and more hackable, (psp go can connect with ps3 controller) if its a psp 3000, does the mirco sd card with an adapter 16GB or 32GB work the same as memory stick pro duo?

    Biggest downside to the PSP GO is storage limit. It has 16GB built in and you can get a maximum of 16GB M2 memory card (Very expensive) so you're limited to 32GB Storage.

    I have a PSP 3000 with a MicroSD to produo adapter with 128GB storage. (Storage is cheap)

    If the Go wasn't limited to 32gb storage i'd say it but for that reason I prefer the 2000/3000 series.

    does the mircoSD adapter with 128GB work well? i've heard that psp dont recordnized more than 64GB. and is it important the class of memory card for exampe 90mb/s class 10?

    I have one adapter that takes two 64GB micro SD's. Using Class 10 90mb/s cards. Can be a little slow to load the list of games but not horrific. I mostly use a different adapter that takes 1 64gb micro SD as find it's a little faster and more reliable.

    i think that 64GB card is enough for psp. but what if my psp 3000 comes with the last official firmware, is it possiable to hack it?

    Yes, all firmwares up to and including the last 6.61 are hackable. Although the CFW on the 3000 series is not permanent, you need to run a 'Fast Recovery' application any time you cold boot the PSP (Powered off completely) but that only takes 5secs at most.

    Um, no, if I'm not mistaken, I do have a 3000 with a permanent custom firmware.
    Also, I think 32gb is enough for everything you wanna do on a psp go, but that's me.
    Heh, I can only say, find the cheapest psp and get that one.

    If you have UMD disc you want to play and would like to have up to 256GB of space, then psp 2000/3000. If you would like to use a ps3 controller while connected to a tv through component cables which is the only benefit that i can think of, then psp go.

    psp 3000 all the way. pspgo is too small (unless you like small device).
