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.

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.

The new screen alone is worth it.
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.

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.

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.

So I'm alone on the silver being tacky then? :p

So I suppose I should run out and get a Slim before they're gone (homebrew)?
Good point - is it confirmed that the 3000 is secure? I don't think I could go back to carrying my UMDs around. :(

That's basically what the in-built microphone is for. :)

Yeah....I've been leaning towards posting my Silver slim in the buy/sell/trade thread since this model was annouced, but I really don't want to buy another bundle, since I don't need any of that shit.

why is it in a cage?
serious question
Ratchet's been a bad boy.

EDIT: My launch PSP still functions great, but I might end up getting one. I just hope they don't introduce a 4000 model next year.

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.
