Excerpt: I only wanted this system for Silent Hill: Origins. I did not want to pay the hefty price for a system with only one great game so I patiently waited for the price to come down. I also entered codes in the Bagel Bites contest. Imagine my surprise when I was an instant winner! I bought the game and readied myself for fun on the PSP..
Summary: I got me a PSP 3000 after my 1000 died to replace it. I had it for about a year and a half until it finally just died. I had my 1000 for about 3 years and that thing was about as tough as a tank (I dropped it in a rain puddle during a South Florida hurricane and it worked as if nothing happened). My 3000 though, the faceplate was breaking off after about 9 months and it was barely hanging on (I only dropped it 3 times and it was in carpet).
Summary: SO my mom ordered a psp 3000 for me for Christmas and what do they send her you might ask. Well they sent her a psp 1001 which you can buy on amazon for about $70-80 plus shipping. I don't really care that it is a 1001 because relatively they are the same one is just a little bit better and has a few extra perks. What i'm really mad about is the fact that she paid $130-150 for something that is worth $80 at most.
Summary: My sons PSP 1000 broke after 5 years of usage. He enjoys his large collection of games and we decided to get a replacement. So we purchased the PSP 3000...first of all it doesn't come with a memory card, second issue is that this is the poorest guilty electric product I seen in many years. The 1000 model was real steal and you can feel the quality. This new 3000 weighs half the amount and is just cheap plastic.
Summary: I ordered 2 of these for my sons for Christmas. I was under the impression that these gaming systems were new. When I first saw the boxes they came in I knew something was wrong. The boxes were dented, sticky and covered in tape. When I opened the first PSP, I noticed it was scratched in several places and the battery had already been placed inside the system. I then checked the other one, and it was in a bit better shape but scratched as well.
Summary: I bought this gadget on December 15 and it read as shipped on 16. Then a few days later, amazon sent me a email unilaterlly canceled my order, due to "process problem on our end" and kindly suggested me to replace my order with them at a much higher price,as you can imagine.Nice touch. For profit, they can even call the UPS to return shipped items and relist them, this is amazing. DONT BUY FROM AMAZOM UNLESS YOU HAVE TO! THEY DONT DESERVE YOUR TRUST!
Summary: Good friend I am of venezuela. I write to him because I made to him 3000 a purchase of a nintendo PSP black color which me sending a mail that already the money of the card was discounted VISA and already it was sent. But he did not say the number of sending to me not for that company sending. Nesecesito urgent it since it is for a gift. I wait for his prompt response.
Summary: I normally do not write reviews but was compelled to do so in this situation. My PSP screen went bad within the first year of purchasing the PSP3001. However, Sony wants to charge $69 just for diagnosing or looking at the PSP. The customer rep and the supervisor were both adamant that the PSP was "not used as intended." How can they make the call without even looking at the unit? Not only that, they just seem to lack basic customer service skills.
Summary: First of all the PSP 3000 does not mention that it does not come with a Memory Card! So you are basically delivered a Product that won't work out of the Package. Amazon fails to disclose this fact as well, they expect you to notice that it is missing from the "items included" list on the package. Not right!
