5.0 out of 5 stars great portable media device 31 May 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I didn't realise when i brought the 3000 that not only are there dozens of great games to buy on UMD disks that are really cheap now, but also it plays all types of files and also connects to the internet wirelessly.

In my opinion the 3000 is a far better choice than the download only pspgo because there are a lot of games available for a tenner or under on umd disk...whereas prices of download games for the go are controlled and kept artificially high.

I've been playing loccorocco 2 for weeks now and it's an amazing game.But have also picked up many great games like gta vice city stories, outrun, lumines 2, god of war, daxter and lots more many for around a fiver.

Movies can be downloaded on Mp4 format and stored on a psp compatible memory card and look and sound great on the's like having a mini hd screen you can take anywhere.

accessories....there are lots of official and unofficial accesories including a go cam ...which enables you to take photos and videos and some games use it too.

you can pause games and turn off the 3000 at any piont and turn it back on again at exact same place... that isn't just a psp go feature as some articles would lead you to believe.

I brought an add on to make holding it more comfortable as i was getting cramp in my thumbs after playing a while...with the add on its very comfortable...can't remember name of it but i reviewed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hands Down the Best PSP Model!! 21 May 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have no problems with my psp at all. I love them very much, all versions, especially the 3003. You can attach a camera and use skype, the weight is much better than the non slim and lite versions, stops cramping. UMD's are less noisy, plus you can download games from the store. It's true you can do some of the things mentioned before on the 2000 slim and higher, but the screen has less glare outside and the screen is more vibrant, the ghosting has been reduced considerably. It also has a built in Microphone unlike psp 2000's. Beats the PSP go Hands down!! The left and right buttons on those things are a nightmare, hiding behind the sliding screen. Battery life seems a lot longer too. A++++ thumbs up, love it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment center! 2 Mar 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I can't even begin to describe what a fun journey it has been gaming on the PSP 3000. I got mine a few years ago before the PSP Go came out and I will probably never part from it (especially since mine is a limited edition). The graphics are amazing. At least PS2 equivalent, if not more. There's a decent library of games to choose from as well. The console in itself is a complete entertainment center. You can store music, pictures, digital comics, watch movies (UMD), play multiplayer games on the internet (there's an in-built mic for in game communication), browse the internet (I've browsed Facebook while I was waiting to catch my flight out of the country at the boring airport). The console is light weight and can easily fit in anywhere. I've even fit it into my pockets on few occasions. My only complaint is that the screen gets dirty quite fast and despite being such a careful person, I managed to get a few scratches on it, which makes me wonder if it's vulnerable material. Other than that, great console and I recommend it to anyone who is looking to take a step into gaming. No big bulky TVs required, no bunch of cables required, or 4 extra controllers with batteries etc etc. Buy this, you won't regret it. And if you want to play something on the TV, it's simple. Get a component cable and you can hook your 3000 series straight on your TV and get PS2 graphics. What more do you want?

5.0 out of 5 stars From DSXL to PSP3000 - never looking back 20 Dec 2010
By Willow
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently traded in my DSXL for a PSP3000 and have never looked back. Where the DS's graphics are little more the average, the PSP's are stunning. Where trying to get anywhere on the internet was nearly impossible on the DS, the PSP is a breeze. Playing other folk on the internet via PSN is great fun and a must and it's free, yes it`s free!

Listen to the radio, store your pictures, watch videos, plus heaps more from this powerful little unit. That's the upside, there is a downside, well a little anyway. The PSP platform is not as well supported as the DS, this is an utter mystery to me in view of the PSP's superiority. Having said that, there is a good choice of games available but not as many as the DS.

Don't waste your money on the PSPGO, unless you are happy with giving out your credit card details across the net, cause the only way you can play games on this unit is via downloads - ridiculous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Handheld Console 31 Dec 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is top notch. I didnt realise the video feature would be as good as it is. Ive put a nice 8gb memory card into it and its more than enough space to hold what i want.

There are some great games out there for the PSP, and i couldnt believe how lite the console is. A friend of mine has an older model and you can really tell the difference.

Good points :

*Loads of choice for games
*Big screen (in some ways better than the ipod touch if your wathcin films or vids)
*If youre a playstation 1 fan, you will find great classics like metal gear solid that you can download onto the psp
*The system is very fast when it loads or when you switch from one video to the next

Bad Points :
Only thing i dont like is the fact that you cant play your own music on it when your playing a game.
