    Question How do I tell what kind of PSP I have?

    I got a PSP off a friend of mine for $40, and it works, but it needs a new battery.

    But I'm not sure which kind it needs, because I don't know if it's the newer or older model.

    I think it's the older one, but I can't tell for sure.

    any help would be much appreciated.

    The original has a textured black backside and the battery/opposite side has a slight outward curve. The PSP 2000/3000 both have glossy flat backsides.

    Thanks.

    I think that means I've got an older one.

    Also, I took out the battery, and on the PSP it says: "PSP-1001".

    You can also find the model number on the sticker that's stuck on the bottom edge of the PSP.

    yup. Now I just gotta buy the battery and a battery cover.

    And then a good game. I was thinking Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron.

    No. Renegade Squadron is a good game. The PSP also has a ton of other good games.

    My favorites are Gundam Battle Universe and Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles.

    Anyways. I have a black phat PSP which I got almost a year after the PSP came out. Then I have a white slim Darth Vader PSP. I also have a mint green slim PSP. All have custom firmware on them.
