I actually found a link on google for a different page with the recharged systems. It's still listed at $60, but the store locator appears to be more accurate. There's about 5 stores listed near me through this link, as opposed to none through the other one. Might be worth adding to the OP for anyone interested.

That is a refurbished unit not an used unit.

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

whenever walmart gets around to clearancing these or another store puts them on deap discount sale the walmarts around me have tons of them cluttering up the bottoms of their gaming sectons for $200. Some TRU & targets do too.

I got a used unit a few months back when it was $70, with a $10 off coupon. The model I got was practically brand new, the slide was still really stiff like it was hardly used. Only grip was the person who installed the screen protector did a crap job, and there was debris inbetween the screen and the protector. Overall I would recommend if you could buy a working one.

take note that you need to buy dock specific component video cables and also the ac adapter.

Sony makes a PSPGo component video cable that connects to the bottom of the PSPGo and directly to the tv. This is the NOT the same cable you use the for docking station. I made that mistake. The component video cable you're looking for only connects to the docking station, it cannot connect to the PSPGo directly.


Weird the component cable that fits in my Go also fits in my offical Sony PSPGo docking station....

While you are correct that the AC adapter is different from the docking station to the Go, you are WRONG that the component cable that the docking station for the Go is different than what the Go accepts. I own all PSPs minus the E1000, and the component cable for the Go works with the Go Docking Station.

PSP 2k's go for about 50-60$ at gamestop too if i'm not mistaken.

The Go to me though is highly desirable. Because it has the best screen.



I like the 3000's screen...bigger, vibrant, ghost free, and also a bit soft on the eyes because of light scanlines. People didn't like the interlacing, I guess.

Yes, there're a few of us that hate it. :lol:
There also a few other problems with the screen on the 3000, and ghosting does still occur.
I prefer the 2000 screens, and I don't mind the Go's screen at all.

Btw, this is a good deal, but let's not pretend it's perfect. Your hands will cramp after 30 minutes during most play sessions on the Go, unless you've got tiny girly hands.

Having trouble with they link but I'll see if I can hunt a unit down. Otherwise where are some good guides to get this thing to do all the neat things people are talking about?

If you output the PSPgo to a TV, can you use a DualShock 3 for second player in two-player games?

Bah, and I just bought one second-hand for 70 (with the cradle). Granted, it's in great condition.....but still !

Bah.


Cradle is like $10-15 and you didnt pay tax. You paid about the same really.

Wow I haven't seen a new PSP Go on any local store shelves in years. Would love to get a new one some day, but I have 2 used ones for now. I'll keep an eye out.

Also Walmart and TRU don't even list PSP Go systems on their sites.

Tempted on getting one but the only digital PSP game I own is Dissidia 012 and I can play that on my Vita but I would enjoy not having it upscaled.

This. I ended up selling my Go because the only games i could play were rpgs or adventure games without my hands crying. Great little system that you can carry with you but the button layout was just as bad as the gameboy advanced sp.

Is there any difference between "refurbished" vs. "used" besides cheaper price? I'm assuming with refurbished they wipe the memory. I bought a used PS3 years ago and was surprised I had full access to the previous owners' movies and games using my ID.

Used are generally ones that are just traded in with no apparent issues.

Refurbish are ones that have been sent back to GS to be inspected because of reported issues, and some may have been sent out to be repaired, and then sent back to the stores to be sold, so all that extra effort ups the price another $10 in comparison. And I think the refurbs may come with an extra case if I recall correctly, and a couple of extra little things you may or may not need.

If you have a 7k power up rewards points, there's a $10 off used PSP system coupon that should work.

I'm completely torn whether or not to get one.
I've got my vita, but I loved my go when I had one!

I'm struggling with a similar problem. I just got my Vita and I like it, but have been playing mostly PSP RPGs on it so far. I'm considering saving $200 and return my Vita and get the Go...

Would love to play RPGs on it.

Got a white one! ohh yeah! The GS employee told me the thing was traded in pristine condition and it looks great.
Now, is there a way to keep the games that the other person had and pass them to my psn account?

As long as you never sign onto PSN from that system, then yes they'll stay, but no way to pass them onto you.

Thanks for the info! I believe the previous owner might have left some inside since rock band manual and other things were inside the box. If so, then I will play them then reinstall fw!

Considering the Vita still has a low amount of good games, I would return it right away, buy a Go, and wait until more games are released for the Vita (hopefully?). I haven't used my Vita in a long time! It is covered by a lot of dust but since it has a screen protector I don't mind how much dust it collects.

The PSP Go at this price is worth it as nothing more than a Persona 3 Portable player, which is all it has been for me since I got it in July for $70. It IS insanely portable.

i called up my local gs and they had one in stock so i went to my power up rewards and found they have a coupon for 10$ off any psp ds wii. So i downloaded it on my tablet and got it for 43$ also mine came with the official psp go zipper bag & leather case! The only draw back is its black i would of preferred the white one.
