    The psp go is the best if you ask me, but I don't think you'll find one online for that price. I got one for 50, but it was somebody I knew irl.

    You might have some luck at a swap meet. I've gotten some really good deals.

    I like the psp go but its kinda hard to want to buy when the psp could get cut off from sonys servers any day now and then you cant buy digital games making it a brick cause no disc drive

    ...you going to hack it no? I mean the PSP servers are already dead you have to go through a ps3 or ps4 to download them and then transfer them via usb.

    For memory cards you can get adapters that will take micro sd cards - https://www.amazon.com/Memory-Cyber...4354&sr=8-1&keywords=psp+memory+stick+adapter

    If you are looking for one with a working disc drive make sure to test(in person) or ask(online) as those fail really easy. I know I had to replace mine about 3 times.

    For the PRO's there are not really that many options beyond buying official memory cards, so you are stuck with 32GB MAX space.(16GB internal and 16GB memocry card); that might be fine for some people but for me it was not. I have 128gb card in my 3000 and could not be happier. It's what stopped me from picking up a Go a few years back.

    broken disc drive is going to make it cheaper

    PSP go is not weaker. It's the same as the 3000. It's also got the nicest screen and is the most portable. I have another PSP and I find myself picking the go over the other one.

    tbh, at this point, i'd maybe wait a little longer and see how the vita scene develops. they're not that much more expensive these days.
    because the psp, while good for most games, still doesn't run all gba and snes games without issues.
