    Hello, I'll be getting a brand new PSP 3000 tomorrow, mainly because there is a new One Piece game coming and I wanted to play some other games for a while now.

    I know it's 6.2, so I can Hack it if I want
    but, will new games work on it? original and hacked ones ( I intend to buy some games I like)
    can I update it to 6.60? I heard that 6.61 is not very good for hacking, but if I update won't it get the newest OS?

    thanks for anyone who can help!

    6.60 can be hacked but there is no need to because PRO firmware works with every game.
    6.61 doesnt exist.

    sorry, I don't really understand. like I said I'm a noob.
    why can I leave it unhacked? can I play hacked games on a legit console??? and what is PRo?
    6.60 is the latest version then?

    Also, about 6.61, it look's real.. at least it says so on the guide here:
    http://gbatemp.net/t...faq-start-here/
    is 6.61 some kind of bug?

    You can update to 6.60 and use 6.60 PRO-C CFW. I have it on my PSP-3000.

    I meant you dont need 6.60 because 6.20 will work - you need to hack but you dont need to update (sorry)
    PRO is the hack used in guide
    6.61 is in the guide to make it future-proof (after 6.61 gets released)

    from what I got from reading around, 6.60 PRO-C CFW is a hacked homebrew yes? is it supposed to work with any game? old and new?

    ANY pro works with ANY game.
    Also about your previous question:
    Actually you can - if you convert them to eboots (Very anoying and most games dont work)

    online works fine - even with hacked games
    you can brick if your PSP turns off during installing (it takes about 4 seconds so it will probably not happen)

    you can also brick if you do something stupid so FOLLOW THE GUIDE
