    If you want the easiest hack, get the first PSP with firmware < 3.50

    these can run n64, custom software, so on and so on. for me it was between a PSP and ipod touch, i got the ipod touch cause i found one for a GREAT deal on cragslist. i advise to do the same for a PSP on craigslist.

    If you want to mod your PSP, do not go with the PSP-3001. It's non-hackable atm.

    if the firmware is too high you are going to need a pandora battery and a magic memstick

    No PSP 4000, just PSP GO.

    If you want one which can definatly be hacked, Get a 1000. If you want the 2000, be careful. Some of them will be bricked when you try to hack them (And you won't be able to fix the brick) The newer 2000's have a different motherboard.

    I would just go with a 1000, Sturdier IMO. Try eBay, and if you don't mind fiddling with it, get one with a few scratches. It will be alot cheaper and will only cost like £10 to fix. Just buy a new faceplate and ta-da! Brand new looking PSP. Cause ones in good condition will cost a bit.

    Oh yeah, as mentioned before. Make sure to get one with low firmware. Anything below 5.03 is ideal. 1.50 is great.
