    If you can get a decent return on it, I say go for it.
    The current PSP is unplayable outside in the day and the new LCD should handle that.

    But the new PSP might not be hackable anytime soon.

    I'd say wait a few weeks, until we get more info. PSP-3000 may not even be all that special.

    No, The screen is bright enough in the PSP 2000. It's just a built in mic. Not much. The DS lite was smaller and looked better and A LOT brighter. (Not sure how bright the PSP 3000 will be,though, but I doubt it will be brighter than like the DS lite)

    Also, I'm sure the PSP 3000 will have new anti-piracy/homebrew tech. I would wait for a hack.

    wait a bit as we don't even know if they are hackable yet and there is only 2 colours available right now.

    Looks like quite an improvement to me.

    PSP 3000 is screen focused. Working on the ghosting, contrast ratio, response time, etc.

    ^That's the truth + the mic. So if you don't have a problem with how the current slim screen treats you, the update has no value. If you're overly picky and the screen makes you feel like you're going to get blindness or eye tumors go for it.

    As far as not working in sunlight with the slim, crap on that. My wife 2 hours ago in the sunlight was watching family guy frickin sweet collection umd in the car with light hitting it...ran just fine and she'd be one to complain.

    You've probably never played dark games like Castlevania then. Some backgrounds in the original Rondo are especially hard to see.

    ^^ Yep. Response time is terrible on the PSP - compare it to something like the DS Lite, where there is no noticeable ghosting at all.

    That was a HUGE difference in screens. But I'd rather at least wait until they release a white version. (all my consoles are white....picky, I know)

    Just wondering, what does PSPR mean on a mem card?

    PSPR is a DDR homebrew app for PSP.

    Unless there is a SIGNIFICANT improvement on the PSP-3000, I would not get it. I would wait until it is released, and then get a Slim because chances are that the price of the Slim will drop after the release of the PSP-3000. That's what I would do, but so far I'm just sticking to my PSP-1000.

    Maybe I just have better eyes, or it's the fact I see better in the dark than some do because I have the Castlevania Rondo/SOTN package and I have no issues.

    Wait a week or 2 after release, To see if any hacks work, if not you just sold a CFW PSP for.. a OF PSP, Not a good trade off [​IMG]

    Everything eventually gets hacked. Well usually everything.
