    I'm just wondering that if I can't find any *old* PSP Slims, where would I could possible find a new Phat?
    I highly prefer to not get a used one. Thanks!

    Canada only please!!

    xD Thanks for the answer.
    Bit far for me though. O.o

    Wasn't specific enough, somewhere near Western BC, lower mainland Vancouver?
    I don't know if Crystal Mall is reliable for *safe* PSPs (as in no cheap copies), are they?

    Just hit up craigslist, there are always people wanting to sell their stuff. I see a lot of DS's and PSP's on there all the time.

    I dunno, I would prefer buying my PSP in a shop/store just because I feel more secure than buying it from some random person. =\

    Paranoid much?

    You do realize that when you go to a store, you're still buying from a random person, right?

    Just think about the fact that the PSPs are checked to see if they work and such and then they are offered to be bought.
    For all we know, random sellers may be hiding things that are wrong with the PSP.

    That's the thing though, you have the option of meeting them in person and making sure the product doesn't have anything wrong with it before you purchase it.

    Your choice though. (even though PSP's go for cheap on craigslist)

    I guess I'll check out some stores first for any new Phats or POSSIBLE new *old* Slims.
    If not, it'll either be a used Phat or an actual seller.

    PSP Phats are no longer manufactured. Your best bet would be to go to EBgames or GameStop and buy one refurbished. They were only 130 for me at Oakridge Mall. By the way, I see you are concerned about the condition of the PSP. Buy it from EB or GameStop and All damaged parts will have been replaced. Even the screen. Mine only had two little scratches because it had been handled loose in the box.

    By the way, I live very near you... Oh, no! I've revealed information to a potential internet predator! *Runs* (I kid)

    I know, I was just kidding.

    I doubt any store has phats anymore. You should just get a slim. It will be hacked soon.

    Speak not of which you know naught about. You haven't even heard about the new unhackable slim motherboards?

    Just after i started taking note of this board, i bought a psp slim from futureshop that came with patapon and headphones, if you do live near me the deal was on around black friday. It was the new box, no sticker with a letter. I don't know what firmware it was because I updated to 5.02 to take a look. My friend then modded the psp to 3.71 cfw - it worked. A note- the box the salesman gave to me was old, it had the texture of flattened carboard when it reflected light. I guess it was luck.
    go for a slim
