Default Where to buy an inexpensive PSP (in Europe)?

Well,
today is my birthday and I'd like to buy a PSP, which I think would be a nice addition towards my PS3.

But where to get a cheap PSP from? It shouldn't cost more than 120 pounds (already including taxes and shipping), so a PSP2000 is just fine -- I don't think there's a place that sells PSP3000 for under 150.

So, what's my best bet?

Happy Birthday!

Amazon.co.uk has the PSP2K at 110 GBP but I don't think they 'll deliver it outside the UK.

Thank you.


As far as I know Amazon dispatches SONY items to most European countries. At least, that's what I've heard by multiple PS3 and PSP owners.

So, is Amazon really the cheapest? Or is there some other, "insider" source?

I doubt it, it's the first one I checked. But I posted it because it's within your price-range and comes from a credible retailer.

If you go the used route be very careful because I think people have been unloading their bricked PSPs on the cheap after failed attempts to install custom firmware.

On the PSP? Try to limit your expectations a bit until it arrives

Just kidding, it's a cool little machine that never got the industry support it deserved not even by Sony themselves. There are plenty of gems for it though.

I ordered God Of War: Chains Of Olympus, with it.
I hope it's worth anything.

The next thing will be the Nintendo DS.
Hopefully, the DSi won't hit Europe until late 2009. I'd love playing GBA games on it.

That's a great game. You won't be dissapointed. A little short but I've played through several times.

My PSP arrived today.

One thing that still bothers me:

I'm going to use my US account and download Suikoden.

-Will that game work on a European PSP?

-What about re-downloading? Is it possible to download that game with my PS3, using the same account?
