Decided to indeed get it, now I'm just using this thread for questions pertaining to starting it up and ease of modding. Original post in spoiler. Warning: Spoilers inside! Okay, I'll be getting somewhere near 200 bucks for my birthday (which is today --around enough for a PSP I suppose) but I'm only interested in 2 games! The only 2 games I'm interested in (Seriously, I'd probably play other games if I bothered downloading them for free, but there are only 2 I'd buy) are Patapon and Lumines. Besides this, my DS is already pretty much used for all my homebrew solutions, so I honestly don't need a PSP for it's homebrew solutions, although I've heard that it's a crapload better (Does it solve most graphical errors in SNES?) To be honest if there was Patapon for PC I wouldn't even bother, but there are no emulators for me to try the game on (Never played, but it looks epic, sexy, and I'd probably replay it millions of times). Okay so my other questions 1)I'm interested indeed in a homebrew solution, so I must ask, since it seems hard to get one pre-modded in my area, is getting one myself and just modding it a lot easier? 2)I can't use microSDs so I need to get these Magic Pro Duo Stick's right? My friend has a 512MB cart for his PSP and has almost every game for NES/Genesis/SNES on it (I suppose it would fit, heh, his sub teacher did it for him, so he himself has no clue as to how) 3)After modding it is it possible to burn the ISOs/CSOs to UMDs and run them off of there? I guess it would be easier for me to carry (among other things) to just burn the 2 games I want on to UMDs and have all the homebrew on my cart (Allowing me to also free up all the homebrew/emulator space on DS, meaning I can hold approx 100 DS games on it) 4)Since I sold my PS2 I wouldn't mind playing PSX games, are they rather large and cumbersome? So what's your take, should I bother getting one (Having those answered would be nice. I'll be looking up the info on it though) (I'm guessing it'll cost around 230~250 bucks after I get the memory stick.
