Thanks to EddieA, in this thread
(not to mention the upcoming D&D Tactics and FF Tactics), my resolve to not purchase a PSP is rapidly crumbling.
I'm not in any big hurry. May is probably my target purchase timeframe (family vacation at end of May) and I'm hoping that maybe a price drop, or at least a different bundle, might appear before then. I did want to go ahead and start researching a bit, though, so I want to ask a few questions.
In poking around the web, I see references to things like version 1.5 firmware, 3.10 Open Edition, 2.7x firmware, PSP-1001k version, and on and on.
Now, I'm not looking to do anything fancy. I just want to play a handful of games (the ones mentioned above and others like Hot Shots, The Show, and Dungeon Siege). Am I safe in just buying the $199 package that I see in Best Buy, Target, etc.? (I'm not interested in the Lords of Dogtown movie or the ATV game, so I really don't want to buy the $250 pack that includes them). Or should I be looking for something other than the $199 package and maybe go somewhere online to find the best package?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
