    I recently purchased a PSP Go! Console from Amazon UK. The item arrived and WTF!!!. The build quality was horrible; it arrived in a PSP 3000 box. The top screen cover was coming away in the corner and overall it felt similar to the build quality you get inside a Hyundai.

    It turns out the item is MP5 player made to look like the Go! It has the sliding screen and a reasonably bright looking display. No money has been taken for the item as yet and I have requested it to be returned for a full refund.

    I'm not sure if the seller is a having a bit of a laugh pushing these on Amazon or what.

    Was this on Amazon UK Marketplace or Amazon UK proper? I avoid that now (marketplace sellers), was ripped off myself. I only use Amazon UK & DE proper these days. You definitely have my sympathies. [​IMG]

    Close but it has a sony badge on it LOL.
    Strange that I haven't had any charges against my account yet. The purchase price was £124 with postage.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    seller was 11ComputerGeeks of all things. I'm not too stressed. Even with third parties, Amazon purchases are a lot safer than ebay. I have filed the complaint and requested a return inside the return period of 30 days so there won't be a problem.

    That's awful, I picked up a GO for 100 usd new! The same price as one of these knockoffs.

    They offered me £43 and keep the item.

    I threatened and they agreed a full refund. Item has been shipped back today.

    I think I will leave it be. They have given me a full refund. I checked the seller's shop and it looks as if they are only selling accessories now.

    Shit like this should always be reported.

    What happens if they do it again?

    I finally found another one for £129. It has arrived and is an original in a sealed box. Thank fuck. I was a bit nervous about buying another cheapy. It is also looks like old stock and had firmware "5.something" [​IMG] Thanks for the PSP Tuts Ryds if your still lurking.

    I found the downloads for CPS1, CPS2 and MVS with full ROMs. All I have to say is "friken awesome." The DSiXL is collecting dust.
