Just got one for six dollars after trading some games in. Any way I can check to see if I can get the three free games?

Just register the system and wait for an email from Sony. Assuming the prior owner didn't register the system, you should be fine.

Good point, i should have read the thread closer. Gamestop's site makes it tough to navigate, I wanted to at least check my local stores to see if they had any used ones in stock

I don't know why I always jump into Go threads to defend it, but it really is a nice device. I like it a lot.

But, keep in mind that you can't play Lumines, Kingdom Hearts, or Invizimals on it. You will also miss out on clearance UMDs (although PSN has its own sales pretty often). So if those stipulations matter to you as little as they did to me, you'll love the Go.

This seems like a pretty good price despite it only allowing you to play downloadable games. I have a psp 1000 with a cracked screen (and no games) which I plan on fixing myself, but now im wondering if I should just get the used go instead. :/

$99 is definitely the best price I've seen but I still can't pull the trigger until I stumble on one for dirt cheap.

I love the size and feel, but I already have a Fat and can't justify the Go.

Hm, if I can find one in almost flawless condition, I'd definitely pick one up for this price.

This proves Sony completely went off the rails when they priced the Go at $250. People are even holding off at $99 heheh

You do know that the PSP-3000 and PSPGo both have brighter, more colorful screens? Big improvements over the Phat screen; I know, I have all three of the regular PSP versions, just not a PSPGo yet.

No, I bought one Sunday for $99. The new ones are for $150 now.

When you call make sure you ask for the SKU 909041

Are you on crack? New PSP Go's are $199. Sure there were BB/Amazon sales for $150, but there were no new PSP Go's for $150 at GS.

Still too high for me too
They should have thought more about all of us with a slew of umds I'm not paying to have games I own in a download for a mobile device
A simple conversion system of some type would have remedied the issue

No I'm not on crack, new PSPGo's are part of the Power Saver sale for $150, I was mistaken that the sale had already started for the new ones though.

$100 is not a steal, after all you can't play UMDs so you end up paying for more

I think the OP could put a lot of doubters to rest with a simple scan of his receipt so some of us can save time/trips to Gamestop looking for these.

I know the advantages, but its still a hard sell for me.

I went last night and used my credit to pick up a pspgo! First impressions are pretty good! The last psp I had was a 1000 model which was bulky and heavy. This is light and fits comfortably in my pocket. As a bonus, the used system that I bought came with an additional 16 GB memory card! I think the previous owner left it in there and Gamestop didn't think to check for it.

Thanks again OP!

Now that's a killer deal!
Those M2 cards aren't cheap. Nice find!

Does anyone know how the account activations work on used PSPs? I know that I won't be able to snag the 3 free games with a new Go, but if a used Go still has a game or two in the internal memory, and then I sync the Go to my existing PSN account to throw my own purchases on there, would the older games still be playable?

I think I'm going to hunt around and see if I can find one of these bad boys today.

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.

I'd really like to upgrade from my 1000 model (to a Go, even, because I like the hardware), but I don't feel like buying Dissidia over PSN again. And (last I checked), you can't play the new Kingdom Hearts because Disney didn't do digital, so they only offered it on UMD.

:/ The UMD-less thing is nice thought, but it seems really poorly executed.
