    Default PSP model and compatibility question

    Hey,
    Okay im looking at getting a psp, most likely a second hand one because the only new ones near me are psp 3000.
    A second hand fat is about $150 and a second hand slim and lite is about $200, and modding them are about $40 to $50.
    My question is, what is the real main difference between the two models compatibility wise? Like is their certain games/homebrews that will only work on the slim and not the lite and vise versa?
    Thanks

    Slim is lighter and can live twice as long via extended battery, fat is vice versa. I dont think the 1.5 kernel you get in fat matters all that much these days, so slim is the way to go.

    If u get a phat, u can hack it, no matter what firmware it has.
    But if u get a slim, there is chance that u get the cursed mobo (ta-088v3), but this can still be hacked using ChickHen + CFW Enabler only if the firmware is 5.03 or below.

    Some apps will only run on the Slim because of its increased memory

    I can't really think of any worthwhile brew that doesn't work on a Slim.

    Im kind of leaning more towards a psp fat because i can get one for $100 with a few games and movies and stuff.
    Will PSX and N64 still work on it?
    And is there anything that wont work on it?

    Yes PSX and N64 will work, although I last time I used the N64 emulator it was slow and laggy although that was a long time ago and there's been quite alot of updates since then.

    I'm not really too sure about apps that are only for Slim, I know there's a save state for PSP ISOs which is only for Slim and the Slim to TV output and that's about as much as I know.
