    The thought of buying a PSP never occurred to me until I was browsing Amazon and stumbled upon it and its relatively cheap price. Theres quite a few models so I was wondering which one should I get? Is the PSP 1000 obsolete? I don't mind it having less extra features, just want to play games well.

    The 1000 can play every game.

    What exactly are you getting it for?

    Just legit PSP games?

    i just got myself seduced with the piano black psp 3000 god of war package

    AWESOMe piece of a device, though the analog stick can hurt my thumb after a while

    dont know about others models stick config though but i would still advice it for the sexy widescreen and light weight

    Speaking about Amazon, this is what happened to me ( and I'll just copy and paste from the other topic since it's relevant ) :

    So I would recommend you the PSP3000, if you can get as lucky as me !

    mine came with OFW 6.30 actually

    i got it to 6.31 to try out my GOW copy then i put through USB the 6.35 + pro b5, so far everything worked like a charm, except few psp minis; one named Tehra dark warrior and another hysteria project has crackling in sound it seem but still playable

    edit : the Thera dark warrior one comes to the XMB with damaged files icon, cannot launch.. iv tried several copies of the cso/iso, same goes for sound issue of hysteria probably a comptibility issue of pro b5?

    I personally chose a 2000 with stock 3.xx firmware due to the bonus RAM and the TV-Out, plus it can be permahacked. Heard that later 200x's can be problematic though, so you'd have to pick it yourself (aka, turn it on, check System Menu, check what's on the label under the battery, compare it online to chech the mobo etc. etc.)

    If you wanna be on the safe side of things, get a 1000.

    It doesn't really matter all that much nowadays, nearly all models are hackable either permanently or chick-hen-ish.
