A question regarding PSPs

Post by Guest on Fri Mar 15, 2013 1:31 pm

Well, I had plans on getting one.
I just wanna ask.

What to look at/consider when buying a PSP?
What advantages does the v.3000 has over the older versions v.2000 and v.1000?

psp 1000 you can downgrade to the oldest firmware
the rest you can't with out facing problems.
2000 and 3000 can connect to the TV and is slimmer.
3000 has a better screen.

3000 is almost no different then 2000.

the only difference is that the 3000 is a bit faster and some of the images on the screen are sharper. Other then that its the same exact thing.

The 2000 is the most stable PSP on the market.

1000 is a big hunk of junk, and even though it looks sturdy, its easy for it to fall apart. If you like Antiques, get it XD

It really comes down to 2000 and 3000, i have owned all 3, the one im using right now is a 3000 with CFW.

3000 have a lower success rate for CFW because its possible that the 3000's can come with a Motherboard that isnt compatable with it. Mine at first i thought wouldnt be since my first CFW attempt on it failed, but i got it to work eventually.

Though i have problems, for example, sometimes in certain games (Mostly Gundam games etc), the BGM will stop suddenly. This happens to me mostly in GVGNP and Dissidia Duodecim.

Honestly, if ur looking for clean, smooth and sleek results with almost no bugs or errors, get a 2000. I plan on re-selling my 3000 and buying a 2000.

Maybe i did XD

If urs still works and took a beating, then i take back what i said. Still, i recommend getting a 2000 or 3000. But if u want to be safe and still get AMAZING performance and balance, go with 2000 XD

2000 and 3000 are both good models, i got the European version called e-1000, a budget model only sold there.


any of the choice above is "crackable" with a "custom firmware" very easily, but note that only 1000 and 2000 models can support "permanent CF"

but it's no biggie, get a 3000 and enjoy the better screen available for psp,
it will play all your ISO anyway :)

edit: note that with a CF you can tune up your CPU speed from 200mhz (downcloked-default) to 333mhz (faster)
so don't mind what hikari said XD

yes ik about clocking Manga, both my Speeds are 333.

Also, ur wrong about 1000 and 2000 being the only models to support Perma.

3000 can support Perma as long as the CFW is PRO B9 - C 6.20, 6.35 or 6.60.

interesting never done that, plus didn't know. now that you think about it can you overclock any other console hmmm


also games after 3.5 firmware auto clocks it up anyways or some do (god of war chain of olympics is an example), you will only want to do that for games under 3.5 firmware or that doesn't take advantage of it

actually anything will do as long as you can play games on it and it can serve it purpose good. 1000, 2000, or 3000, doesn't matter. all depends on if your tight with money and what you can find the cheapest.

Also ur preference on Heavy vs Lighter.

XD the 1000 is significantly bulkier and heavier then the 2000. 3000 is the lightest. 2000 is the most stable. 1000 is good for compatibility (i guess? XD i have had bad experiences with it...bad luck?)

thanks for all the help guys,
At least I had my sights to those two (2000 and 3000)
I had to ask cause the price difference between the versions are pretty high here.
I have plans on playing Dissidia and GVGNP btw.

I would recommend 2000 then.

Question, are you going to put CFW on it? Or keep it using OFW? (OFW is Official Firmware)

CFW = custom firmware

allows you to do more with the psp basically in simple terms and download iso. but remember to get a big enough memory stick if you do.

Yea my Memory Stick is 8GB.

U can download PSP Games and put them on ur PSP via USB in a folder that u make called ISO. And they show up in ur PSPs Game Section.

And u can play em ^^

i have a 32gb mem sitck ( a duo micro sdhc holder) but i recommend at least 8gb to be "confortable"...

the custom firmaware you must install in order to play "downloaded games" from the internet...that or pay for every single game you want, in the end it will cost more than the psp itself...

lol

LOL! Dont say it like that, its so easy xD

Also, i got my 8GB back when Memory Sticks for PSP were EXPENSIVE AS HELL. This 8GB i bought AT THE STORE was 120$ at the time. Since PSPs were still VERY WIDELY bought XD
