New PSP-3000 + 6-8 Games: $99.00 (+tax/free shipping) @ Walmart.com

I had been looking for a new PSP and thought this was a great deal:

Link

You choose 3 games to go with the system, with a couple of 2-packs available as single choices. Additionally, 3 boxed/sealed games (Hot Shots Tennis, Hot Shots Golf 2, Patapon) came inside the PSP retail box. These games are not mentioned as part of the deal on the site, so I suppose they could be YMMV. But unless someone has had experience with Walmart.com that would suggest otherwise, I'd assume everyone would receive the same bundle.

Nice. I recently rediscovered my PSP fat. Quite a machine for its time.

So is a PSP worth purchasing vs. a Vita?  Not really familiar with the system, just wondering if there is a reason to buy it over the Vita?  And what about a 1000 vs. 3000, what's the big difference between the new and older models?

Someone else can better answer the differences between the 1000 and the 3000, I know the 3000 is improved (probably at least battery life, screen, and ergonomics), and some accessories work with some models and not others, but they all play the same games.

I couldn't go back to the PSP from the Vita. I never really got into the PSP (have a 1000), I preferred Nintendo handhelds. But I'm loving my Vita.

Advantages of the PSP: the system is cheaper, and the games are dirt cheap.

As far as the extra pack-in games, that's pretty cool if you get them, but it'd suck if you chose Hot Shots Golf 2 and Patapon as 2 of your 3 games. Also, be aware that some of the choices are duplicated in double-packs that are also available to choose: Dark Mirror/Fire Team Bravo, Arctic Edge/Twisted Metal are the double packs, and all but Twisted Metal are available as individual choices as well. If you get the double packs and the pack ins, you might end up with 8 games to play on your new system.

For $90 more, I'd say just get a Vita.

Or $30 more get a used vita instead. A lot of people have had luck with cowboom and warehouse deals systems being in great condition (I bought my Vita new, though, didn't want to risk it).

I was the same way. Bought mine for a $200 from a fellow CAG. Totally worth it. I received a PSP for my birthday last year. I have more games for my Vita, but I play my PSP from time to time. Can't go wrong with either system.

Really depends on what kind of gamer you are.  If you like to keep up with the latest releases, obviously you'll want a Vita.  Another point to consider is that if you go the PSP route, any physical games you buy will later have to be re-bought if you get a Vita and want to play them on there.  Of course, the other side of this is that PSP games are getting pretty cheap and I imagine that will be the next system Gamestop starts clearancing out so you could potentially build a large, impressive library for very little.  

 

Also, there are some games that were never converted to digital so they can only be played on the PSP.

Wish they would just drop the price of the core system for those who don't need the games...

I agree with the "Get a Vita" sentiment.

 

There are many PSP/PS1 games playable on the Vita, and the Vita screen - while not "HD" - is a huge upgrade from the PSP (especially the OLED model). So those games surely look crisper being played on Vita.

 

Now I'm sure someone will point out all the PSP games that are NOT available digitally on Vita (or are not compatible with Vita). That is true, but I personally wouldn't pay $99 for a console that old just for the purposes of maybe seeking out those games. Looking at hardware alone, the Vita is so much more advanced it's not even funny. I'd probably do about $49 for the PSP - although I'm loving my Vita so much I'm not sure even that would do it at all. The Vita is basically like a PS3 in your hand - so you can see your friends lists, trophies, check email, Netflix, etc. In terms of navigation speed and browsing capabilities, the Vita is actually BETTER than the PS3.

All I want this for is FFVI through FFIX and Dissidia and Crisis Core.  $49 is my buy-point.  Nice find, though.

Hmm, my GoW PSP-2000 is 5 years old now. I'll keep this in mind as a possible replacement, but this PSP is pretty much MSRP+3 free games. Nice, but not great.

Not that good of a deal for a PSP IMO.  Just looking quickly on Craigslist near me there's a bunch in the 40-60 range, some with games.

I would say go with the vita, personally. I got a vita and not only is it a really cool portable but it feels good in my hands.

 

The PSP, I ended up selling because it's just too small for my hands. I Never got used to it because it just never sat comfortably in my hands and hurt on a couple occasions after a long session.

PSP can play PSOne ISO images. If you own the Playstation discs you can rip them on your computer and play them on your PSP with ease.

Well, it depends. If you're not particularly interested in any Vita software, it's not worthwhile buying a Vita just to play PSP games, especially considering with the Vita you'd be missing out on the massive PSP secondhand market.

Fantastic deal - PSP is such an underrated system. And a better emulator machine than most of these $99 consoles coming out. Old games look fantastic on PSP because the resolution is close to those old games original 240p or 480i.

That's a good deal.  If I had $100 Walmart gift card plus the tax lying around, I'd jump on this. 

I'd even jump on it if it was for the PSP 2000 or E-1000 model.  Already have a PSPGo and a 3000.

Kind of wish the PSPGo had a remake.

With this bundle, I'd recommend getting the two Dual Packs and some game.  Followed by adding the other dual packs as options if you're looking to have decent library started.

How easy is it to mod the 3000? I mainly want to get one just to play some old ps-one games on and maybe some genesis titles.

 

Does it require a hardmod or a softmod?

Great deal, great library of classics that are dirt cheap, zero region protection and does wonders when it's made "special". 

 

Will grab one to stash away.
