    I really need to know which PSP I should really buy
    I can't simply make a choice and go ahead to buy one which I may end up regretting

    PSP Phat - Offers more homebrew support
    PSP Slim - Has less homebrew compability but it offers much more:
    2x Flash Storage
    3x Battery Capacity
    Video-In
    Lighter and Slimier
    USB Charge

    I mostly want a PSP that can play PSX Games and being able to use CWCheat, POPSLoader and PSPFiler (homebrews)

    Anyway please help me to choose!

    Thanks!

    homebrew support is not 'better'..with the timemachine both are equal.
    the only difference any more is the infa red port..i voted slim..traded my phat for it and havent regreted it one bit

    Strictly my opinion. No arguments please.

    2x Flash Storage - So what, it's not that practical to the average user. Slim is also less homebrew friendly.
    3x Battery Capacity - Ok perhaps, but the phat's battery is good enough imo, have an extra battery in hand and you're fine.
    Video-In - It sucks. I don't remember specifically but I think you need component cables to play games. Not practical as well. For some reason the PSP is a hand-held device. Would be great if you could simply connect composite cables, play WHATEVER game (in which includes emulators) and have full resolution on the television.
    Lighter and Slimier - And also feels cheaper. I personally like teh phatty's fat.
    USB Charge - Who cares. The A/C adapter works fine, it's enough. USB charge are for the lazy.

    In the end I rather have a PSP that has 100% homebrew support.

    mmmhmmm...

    Slim is for fashion, Phat is for hardcore!

    I wish I can switch back to Phat. Now I can't hack my darn PSP!

    Sadly i hate to admit this even though i'm a proud owner of the {PHAT}, but i think the {PHAT} needs to lose some weight, because soon the slim will be able to be fully homebrew com. maybe DAX can add on to cool features with the extra flash space and
    more advanced homebrew will be able to be played with 64mb of ram and you'll prob be able to always over cock it because its more battery efficient.

    Embrace your dreams, and always protect your soldier honour!

    i prefer my fat, much better hombrew support is a main reason, and unlike the slim the phat feels like its amazing qulity. slim feels really cheap, and its flimsey, phat is more durable. psp fatass FTW!
