I bought Sony PSP 3001, through help of my friend, in the US. I was very excited especially when I learned that I was able to buy the latest model of the PSP. I was one of the firsts to buy the latest model.
Though I encountered problems playing games in my PSP, because it does not allow games to be saved in the memory card that came with it, I still find the whole performance of the product a superb one. From the graphics, to the colors, to the built-in sound system, all worked very well I had no problems with them. As mentioned, the only limitation I encountered is that I cannot save games to the memory card. Apparently Sony has improved its PSP products such that "pirated" copies of games could not be saved in the memory card.
Good thing my brother volunteered to have my PSP downgraded so we could save more games in it. Now I enjoy more gaming time with my PSP playing various games. Every time I finish one game I can easily replace it with new ones. The more games I add to my PSP, the more I enjoy my playing time with my PSP... Anytime, anywhere!
