PSP 3000 instead of PSP-GO,
This review is from: PlayStation Portable 3000 Core Pack System - Piano Black (Video Game)
Well I decided to go with the PSP 3000 instead of the GO. The main deciding factor was that the GO has a smaller screen size which is just not cool with me. Also the 3000 WILL take 16gig memory cards so the GO has no advantage there and may be at a disadvantage without a UMD slot.
The 3000 is slim, well built, and has a nice feel in the hand. The screen is large and brilliant though glare and fingerprints remain to be a problem. The speakers sound great for how small they are and the system has lots of power with reasonable battery life.
I do not think it deserves five stars though because the web browser is clumsy and slow. I also wish that the PSN was more integrated for those of us who also have PS3s. Trophies and profile info should be the same for both systems and both systems should be able to contribute to your collection of trophies IMO.
Also, you can count the games worth owning on one hand. I bought this system just to play Crisis Core, (totally worth it btw). But on the horizon are many amazing titles like Peacewalker and GT, now is a good time to get a PSP.
