Since the PSP's in the end of life and cheap right now, I think it's a good time to pick one up before the PSP is retired. Why? Well... The Vita's out, pushing used PSP prices down. The PSP's been out for ages anyways, and they're relatively cheap used ($50-80 depending on the model). Can hack it in minutes now. Need no flash cart or modchip for hacking, it's softmods now. Every PSP model can be hacked (on any firmware right now, too). Memory Sticks are cheaper now, you can get an 8GB for $25 (versus the $60 I paid for mine). The current hacks give PSN access. The PSP's last firmware update was almost a year ago, it seems the current hack types are here to stay. And since it seems we have a lot of people on the forum that aren't aware of all the stuff a PSP can do compared to a DS... The PSP can emulate many more systems than the DS, even supporting Super Mario RPG and Star Fox for the SNES. The PSP has a much higher screen resolution than the DS so it doesn't need to do any downsizing of the graphics to make systems like the SNES fit on-screen. The PSP can play PSX games natively. You can use WEP and WPA wireless security on a PSP, where the DS is limited to WEP with flash carts. The PSP has native support for playing various audio and video formats, with homebrew to support even more. No more choppy low-quality video files on the DS. Since it mods the base firmware, accidental firmware upgrades (by kids, for example) can be blocked. The PSP can have all sorts of plugins installed that do things like add cheats, in-game screenshots, in-game MP3 players, video capture to a PC, and much more. If you can think of something good to add, post it.
