    I don't have a PSP, but I am interested in getting one pretty soon. I want to buy a used one if possible, and I was wondering what the market value is. I have a couple of friends who have PSPs who don't play them much and might be interested in selling them and I want to offer them a fair price for it. I've searched Ebay a few times and it seems like $90-110 would be a fair price, but I'm not certain. Thanks in advance.

    id say that about $100 is a good price for a working psp in good condition.
    Just 2 months ago my sister sold her psp on ebay for $185 ebay
    She got a ds lite, and has no intention of selling it [​IMG]

    I've already got a DS, and love it, which is, of course, why I'm on this site.

    And while I don't anticipate a PSP being as good as or replacing my DS, I think there's enough worthwhile games/homebrew/multimedia to make it worth buying it used (especially when you factor in the price of pirated games). Maybe that is blasphemy on a primarily GBA/DS site, but I think it's good to keep an open mind about these things [​IMG]

    Wise decision [​IMG] Just make sure the PSP you buy is not higher than firmware 2.71 otherwise you wont be able to downgrade and enjoy the lovely homebrew.

    and you don't want a TA082 mother board.

    but that being said, they have a new eloader that runs on firmware up to 2.6. which is good for me cause the psp i bought yesterday has a TA082 mother board. i'm just waiting for them to be able to put devhook on it so i can start downloading games.
