Doubts about the PSP

downloadable games still work on the 3000; you just have to have memory sticks with sufficient space

1 – What's the difference between the PSP GO and PSP 3000 ? The GO has no UMD drive (the games sold at retailers are printed in UMD discs) which means that you can only download games from the PSN store. This means that older games are still priced at almost full retail even today (like Locoroco and Jeanne D'Arc that are $20) and you can't buy used games.


2 – Does the PSP have wireless internet connection ? It does, but you have to turn it on by moving a switch at the top left (at least that's the case with my PSP 3000 system).


3 – Does the PSP 3000 have internal memory ? It does, but only enough to allow for system updates.



As for your other question, a PSP 3000 can use Memory Stick Pro Duo units up to 32 GB so you can store downloaded games and all your save files. I've got a PSP 3000 with a 16 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo and it is great. I like the form factor of the GO better but it's more expensive and, as I've said, doesn't play UMD discs.


As an added bonus, you can use your registred PSN account on your PSP to activate minis and PSX purchases to play on the portable system. This DOES take out one of your five activation "chances" for said purchased games so you must take that into consideration.

Thanks guys, I'll take everything said into consideration.


Since I'm basically thinking about this to get one particular game and play downloadable games the Go seems more like what i should be getting.


But it's sad really, I enjoy collection the boxes and manuals for every game I have. They should let you download it for free of the PSN if you bought the real thing...

@Pedro: Just a final heads up: Not ALL PSP retail games are available to as digital downloads and some will probably never be (several Square Enix games come to mind).
