    ok so basically i have the PSP 1000 i think its called. (got it day it came out back in 05 or whatever) The charger is starting to go, not the cord the actual thing. Do u think its worth it to get the new PSP 3000 or just mess around with charger until it starts charging. It gets really annoyin. anyway thanks for ideas.

    I have the same exact model, but I need a new battery for it, it can't hold a charge for more than 1 hour without needing a charge, which charging it only works half of the time.

    I would recommend getting the PSP 3000, you can make VOIP calls with it too because it has a built in microphone(No need for headset).

    I would get a 2000, Sony even says it has better battery life than the 3000, all your getting in the 3000 its a "brite"r screen and a very hard piece of hardware to hack (well not too hard, but a Pandora battery is easier). I would go with a 2000, they are really easy to hack, and its probably cheaper for the same thing. If you really dont wanna hack it, I would just go with the 3000

    Get a 2000 and hack it, that's what I did.

    3000s are currently unhackable (although it will get hacked in the near future), plus they have a minor screen problem that deals with scanlines.

    Actually, its already been hacked. Same method as the PSP-2000. Check around PSP QJ.

    That's only good if you want to play Socom. Because honestly, I don't know anybody who uses Skype on the PSP. I bought the headset for Socom and it's nice. Although it's a bit lengthy...

    Nope. I think you're talking about the Datel battery thing. The first problem is that it hasn't come out yet and the second is that it doesn't do the entire job. It will boot you into service mode (supposedly), they still don't have the IPL nor can they make any kind of a program that can help you install CFW on there.

    Here's what Dark_AleX said:

    It's not hacked yet, unfortunately. Although they did decrypt the 3000 modules.

    I'd just go 2000,

    1000 sucked,

    2000 is hackable,

    What more can you want?

    I know, cut the portable and go PS3 like I did. (its worth it)

    Yeah, the portable ports always get watered down.

    I heard on kotaku that a PSP2 is coming out next year.

    Here's the article.

    Rumors are rumors. There's also a rumor of a PSP-4000 out sometime soon. Doesn't mean it will be necessarily true. Hell, I don't even know if Sony will make a PSP2. I don't think the PSP can be considered a success, nor a failure. I don't know if there is enough incentive to make another.

    Although I do have to say, the guy who made the concept art for the PSP2 is real good at Photoshop.
