Default PSP 2000 / 3000, questions:

I want to get a PSP, I'm not going to get the Go, I don't want to spend that much money and I have no problems with UMD games. I might reconsider if they announce all previous PSP games will hit PSN or something.

PSP 2000 vs PSP 3000

I heard there were problems w/ 3000's screen?

Also if I were to get a 2000 (Amazon has them), would I be shooting myself in the foot for accessories (buying a new battery) or are they all interchangeable?

The PSP-3000 screen is brighter yet worse due to the weird scan lines you can see. Check it out for youself to see if it bugs you, but it does bug me.

The batteries are compatible between the two.

I'll see if I can find one in a Bestbuy then...only reason I ask is I'm fairly positive that a Dissida bundle was announced, so I could just wait until August, and have no problem w/ that but it would be a 3000 and I don't know if I could get a 2000 say...off Amazon then.

I found this review:

http://www.gamingbits.com/content/view/4785

The 3000 shots look horrible compared to the 2000...how did they get away with that and just from looking at those why would anyone take 3k over 2k? Am I missing something?

All the pictures I'm seeing of non-games look much better on 3K than 2K though...ugh this is confusing.

I have a 3000 and on mine I do not see any of the problems others have reported. I love mine however I'm also a tech junkie and will possibly think about getting the PSP GO! and either sell or pass my current PSP 3000 down to my nephew. I can't stand having UMDs around personally.

Wow that's really tempting to get it now...

Are there any other major difference besides the screen and built in skype on the 3K? I don't care about skype. I saw the screen @ Bestbuy today of the 3K and it didn't bother me so maybe it's only a select amount of games?

I don't intend to hack either so I don't care if it's the 2K or 3K.

I think 2D games are the ones that look worse on the 3k, which is what most of my PSP collection consists of (ports of older RPGs) so that's why I went with the 2k, and also due to the fact that it was $50 cheaper. I think Dell also has the 3k for sale, or that coupon should work with it, but it's still more expensive than the 2k.

The 2000 has Skype built in too... it's really a great service if you don't have a decent cell phone plan. I unfortunately have unlimited texts on my cell phone plan, so I barely used my Skype service.

The 3000 has a built-in mic, I think that's it.
