There are very few new features in this as compared to the previous one: A built-in mic and a better screen.
Otherwise, this is exactly identical in terms of technical specifications to the older generation PSP

Built-in mic means two things:
a) you can skype (also built-in!) etc. any time
b) You can use regular headphones and don't need to buy the special PSP-headset anymore.

There was some concerns about the 'interlacing' lines on the screen and youtube is full of videos that highlight this....and say this is bad and so on.
This is so not true!
To be honest, during regular gameplay you won't even notice the lines...I only noticed them a few times when I was specifically looking for them and not concentrating on the game.

The screen is a lot brighter and colors richer (I compared with my roomie's..he has the old one)

If you are wondering if you should buy this PSP, the choice is really very simple:

1. If you already have a PSP-2000 (a.k.a. Slim&Lite) then you don't really need to, because this isn't much of an upgrade except for the built-in Mic and brighter screen.

2. If you don't have a PSP yet and looking to get one for the first time, this is the one to get!

Got the console 2 days after the purchase had ben made, quite fast. I have everything promised: the console , the charger, the insttructions and the box. the console, as describes, has a little scraches on the screen and on the back, but since it's a second hand one, it's all understandable. Fair trade.

When there is the likes of the wii, xbox 360, ps3 etc sometimes its nice to be able to play an older console. Ok its not state of the art but i think some of the best games (tales of the world) can be found on psp. Its a hand held console that has given me hours of fun. The console is light and easy to use and the games have many hidden challenges.

I'm only going to address a few specific points in this review, things that I had trouble finding for myself before purchasing or have had little coverage here:

Firstly, the scan lines that are present in the 3000 models, and not the 1000 or 2000s: when I first turned the console on I was quite surprised by how visible they were. However, after a day or two I actually had trouble even noticing them. I am unsure if this was me getting used to them, or whether they actually are more visible on fresh hardware, but either way they are now a non-issue. It was something I was quite concerned about, having seen images of horribly distracting lines and equally damning reports. It's all completely over-hyped. I still do notice them, occasionally, but barely and it's so infrequent as to be unimportant.

Secondly, the "Pearl White" we get here in Europe: it does have some (probably metallic) shiny bits in the casing, which gives it a glimmer in the right lighting conditions. I prefer the "Ceramic White" style the Japanese model comes in, which is a matte-effect, but the sparkles don't show up very often and when they do, they actually look better than they do in photographs. I only generally notice them when a light source s reflecting off the casing directly into my eye.

Finally, build quality: while I never owned one, the old 1000 series always felt like a solid piece of kit, and to a lesser extent so did the 2000. While I appreciate the lightness of this model, it does feel far less substantial and hardy. My left and bottom D-pad buttons both developed a noticeable and vaguely annoying creak within a few days. Perhaps I was unlucky here, but I suspect it's not that uncommon.

We had trouble at first but got in contact withswallow games and my problem was sorted quickly with a small refund and an apology so happy in the end when my complaint was dealt with very quickly.

The PSP 3000 is by far good unlike the psp go
which claims "why carry UMD's around when you can have them on your console"

how big are UMD's? well I know hoe big a pocket is and a guess you can carry 1 game in the psp and another couple in your pocket.

Any way back to the psp 3000, I am going to name 10 key points about the psp 3000 5 positive and 5 negative to give a even view and not a un-fair one.

1.The Console Is lightweight, which makes it easy to put in nearly all pockets ( unlike the old psp 1000)

2. You get a built in microphone

3.quicker loading for games

4. Better backlight for the psp 3000

5. Better analogue stick than the previous psps

Negative Points:

1.Some pretty distressing news on the Sony handheld front: We've gotten wind of reports that the new PSP-3000 handhelds have some interlacing issues. Some scanlines not seen on the Slim have also been spotted on the PSP-3000's screen.

Some members on the U.S. PlayStation forums have said that the interlacing issues become really noticeable when fast-moving objects are on-screen.

2. It is still to expensive for the psp, Sony still need to reduce the price buy £40 to persuade people to buy then rather than a Nintendo DSI

3.Another backward step made by Sony as the new psp still have dead pixels, the average dead pixels ratio on average is between 5-7 for the new psp.

4. I have seen on M.Whitehead's review on a psp 3000
