    Hi all, I have recently bought a new PSP 3000. Anyways, I need GripShift, anyone know of a place in UK or non-uk based online store that has this game at a reasonable price and ships worldwide (in my case, to UK)?

    This game is pretty much sold out everywhere and is going for rediculous prices on ebay [​IMG]

    I saw a guy sold his copy for... $10 (Canadian). What a maroon. [​IMG]
    Sorry, I can't help you out, but worth checking your local for sale sites.

    Yeah i love irony, i had this game and thought it blow'ed and insta-returned it, now its going for 100+ bucks.
    Also on an ironic side note, my Custom Firmware PSP buddy (who actually gave me his pandora), had to buy a PSP 3000 due to bricking his PSP 2000, and pawned for another 2000 the day before this exploit came out, thinking he could never hack it.

    The thing is, right now it's just a save exploit that allows you to run a few homebrew games (nothing more). People are buying the game thinking they are going to be able to put custom firmware on their 3000, when in reality, cfw might not be available to 3000 owners until 2010 or later.

    I believe the exploit has been fixed in the latest PSP firmware.

    CATCH UP there's a CFW homebrew enabler that can run cso/iso BUT ... its not a permanent kernel fix its just an exploit at the minute!

    I have GRIPSHIFT btw but I'm not selling it [​IMG] its priceless now anyhow!

    Er. no. The homebrew enabler is just that, it enables a very select (2 or 3) homebrew apps to be run using the Gripshift exploit. It doesn't allow cso/iso's to be run.

    This is very true!

    As for finding GripShift, it's always in the bargain bin. Try Wal-Mart, Future Shop, Zellers, EB Games, etc. I've seen plenty of copies, and it is always between $9.98-$19.99CDN.

    This title won't be that popular for long, and you really can't do much with it, so don't kill yourself looking for it.

    Time for you to prove it then. Produce one video that shows an ISO being loaded on a PSP3000.

    One more question, what's the best place (too many fakes on ebay) to buy original sony psp earphone with remote control for use on psp 3000?
    Play.com are selling it but going at around £20.
