That's a problem. If there happen to be any games activated on the system, they will only function as long as the system remains as is. The minute you activate the system using your PSN id, those games become unplayable.
If you like the games, play them until you finish them. Then, activate using your PSN id.

The chances of finding a system with active games are slim, but hey somebody appears to have found a system with a 16G card still in it. So, you never know.

I know the last used DS XL I bought, came with a 8GB SD card in it, so you can (in theory, and practice) get lucky.


How much do used XL's go for at Gamestop? $150?

If you are considering a PspGO, just check to make sure the games you want are available digitally; that's what made me choose the 3000. For example, Crisis Core, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Some of the Ys games (I think only Ys seven is downloadable)...anyhoo there are lots more. Just check first. And don't forget that "Playstation phone" :P

EDIT: oh, and I think they use slightly different memory sticks, so I don't know if you can transfer saves :(

I figured as much. I've been occasionally lurking eBay and Craigslist for used Go units, and most every listing includes a bunch of the games they've downloaded to jack up the price, which I have no use for. :( Thanks for the info.

EDIT: Just bought a white Go for $99! I can post a receipt if anyone really wants super-concrete evidence. Only downside is that the one I have didn't come with the USB cable (did come with charger), but I've seen some for under 5 bucks on Amazon. And holy crap, I just checked the games list, and the previous owner bought Chains of Olympus and a ton of PS1 games! Crap, I really want to keep these now. :(

Yeah, that's pretty cool.

I lost mine and every store I go to doesn't seem to have them. Odd.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

a $99 PSPGo is tempting as I don't own a PSP (sold mine a while back), but I really don't need to be spending any money right now...And with the announcement of the PSP2 and the 3DS coming in March, I feel that the go will keep dropping in price...

also, does the PSP Go have any sort of memory built in or do you need a memory stick duo to do anything?

It has 16 GB (really 14 GB) of internal space.

What significant games are not available for download but are on disk for the PSP besides Kingdom Hearts?

^ I could never find a direct answer, but I do know some of the PSP games not currently available on the Playstation Network:
Lumines, Lumines II, Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy II, and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.

The original Bomberman on PSP was for awhile not available until recently. I've been considering to pick up the Metal Gear Solid Digital Novel.

I want that Silent Hill graphic/digital, think it was called Silent Hill Experience. Not sure if it is there on PSN or not.

So is that 3 free game promotion thing for any Go you register? Works with these used ones as well?

I'll believe it when I see it but as of right now there's no way I'd trade my PSP 1000 for a PSPgo and give up all of my SNES, NES and GB games.

Its a full on kernal exploit, the current status is that it is 'coming soon' and it is out to certain members of the modding community (i'm not one of them though). I know one of the guys that has it and he says its the real deal, i think what the wait is now is a chess game in terms of OFW version and CFW versions with Sony.

No Atlus is quite good about putting their games for download. Square Enix is the only one with the problem.

New dropped to $150. Might just buy a new one if I cant find a used one in flawless condition.

Wonder if this might become a universal price drop soon. Hope other stores take effect and I'll pick up a new one. I personally wouldn't get a used one because of the 3 free games offer, which can only be claimed once per PSPGo, once someone else registers it you can't get the 3 free games with it.

I'm hoping for $150 as the new MSRP, but mostly to take advantage of the Carl's Jr coupon!

Carls Jr coupon is a $50 off coupon that works at target for the PSPGo.

I wonder if these sales and coupon are the retailers' way of saying to Sony, "We're looking to get rid of this particular product"

I don't mean to bump a buried thread, but I just picked up a used go for $99. The thing about it was that the employee at the gamestop said they were 149.99 when I called. However when I went to the store, I told the employee about the price and she checked and she seemed surprised that it was actually $99. Another weird thing was that when I bought a used 3000 two days ago They gave me a free two year warranty. I then returned the 3000 in order to get the go. When I returned it they credited me for the warranty (she then gave me another free warranty on the go). I ended up netting extra credit.

Yea, I bought a PSP Go over lunch today. As one of the other posters said, I was surprised to get a free one year warranty. I'm not sure why, I just got it. Is GS doing some sort of promotion that gives you a free warranty? Either way, it's a cool bonus.

If there's anything on it, I doubt it will work since whoever had it before you will have probably deactivated it. Although if there is stuff on it, you won't be able to use it once you log into the PSN with your own account.

Is $99 a permanent price for the Go used or will it go back to $149 after the Power Saver sale is over and the price of a new Go goes back to $199?

As a part timer at GS the new Go's will go back to $200 after this week from what I'm told. As for the $100 used price I think it's staying.

Long time reader, first time poster!

I just came back from Target and they price matched the gamestop 149.99 price and accepted my 50 dollars off coupon I got at carls. Minus my 100 dollar gift card for signing up with att I ended up paying 8.25 out of my pocket.

Gamestop ad's runs till today (I think) so go to your local target and try to price match, and use the coupon good luck.

Oh snap, I should try that.

Ive always had problems pricematching at Target because they need a physical ad.
