Did a search, didn't see anything. Mock if old

Went to Best Buy today to pick up a new Nano for my wife and lo and behold:

Sorry for the crappy quality. Asked the associate about it, he told me "Oh yeah, they do come out next week," then walked away. I'm still contemplating on whether I should go back and pick one up. The silver looks really nice.

Looks hot.

Thankfully, I didn't get a PSP-2000, so maybe I can just upgrade my original PSP and get the 3000.

Is that silver different to the standard 2000 silver? I have that from the Daxter pack, as it was by far the best deal out there, and to be honest it looks cheap. I'd take black over that any day.

I have to agree. I bought the slim silver on launch day and I'm still super happy with it and it's color. Black just looks like all the rest of them.

I don't think so, to me it's not the jump from DSPhat to DSlite or PSPFat to PSPSlim. I'm happy I bought my slim when I did and don't feel like I'm missing out on the 3000.

If you have a 2000, this is true.

It would be a good upgrade from the 1000 though.

I'm kind of tempted as I never picked up a slim, but I'll just go ahead and assume Sony have fixed the Pandora exploit on this new model, right?

Anyone who gets their hands on a 3000, I would love to hear some additional impressions.

I bought mine off of Amazon earlier this week. Since I'm a videophile and sensitive to ghosting, I figured the upgrade over the slim would be worth it. Add that to the fact that all PSP games might be going digital in 2009, and I was willing to give up my homebrew. Plus, I'm sure it's just a matter of time before the 3000 is hacked, and then I'll have my 333mhz back. (Unless Sony gives me that too.) Please.

Yeah, I've read about this on another forum.

I still have my old fatty, and will be 100% interested in this PSP 3000 when it becomes homebrewable. I just want to see how much of an improvement the screen makes when it comes to GTA: LCS. That game had horrible ghosting.

PSP -> PSP 2000 - Wasn't worth it.
PSP -> PSP 3000 - Most definitely worth it.

I have an original PSP so I can't wait to upgrade.

QUESTION: Can PSP 3000 use Skype? If so can it easily and efficiently but used as a phone or would it be difficult and janky to pull it off?

Thank you for your input.

Good point - is it confirmed that the 3000 is secure? I don't think I could go back to carrying my UMDs around. :(

If i did that then I would have 2 slims. I loved the blue color though. But if they are suddenly discounted, then maybe. What the hell would I do with 3 PSP's though, lolz.:D

Not all current slims are CFW-able. Some TA-88's (v3) block the exploit. So buying a Slim right now isn't necessarily a great idea either.
