    Don't be daft! Just as I can't take my old DS Lite back and get a nice new one.

    It isnt worth it either.

    Woo, video out. Only works if you have a component input on your TV and your TV is EDTV/HDTV. Otherwise, you're f***ed.

    Slightly slimmer, meh, I have huge hands, so I love how the original one is, as I'm able to wrap my hands around it comfortably. (On another note, I'll probably end up buying an old model DS for the same reason, Lite is way too thin)

    The only benefit I see is the speakers on the top instead of on the bottom, but thats it.

    Yes, you can. As long as you have the box, pack it up and take it to any store that sells the new PSP. Tell them you want to swap for the new one and they'll hand it over.


    You can also swap 2 Gamecubes for a Wii.

    If you lost the box then you won't get your free PSP.

    I don't think Sky Blue was being serious.

    Of course you can't get a free upgrade from an old model to a new one. That would be similar to taking in your ps2 and asking for a free ps3 instead of it.
    Not exactly the same obviously, but the principle is the same.

    You could trade in your old psp to get money off a new one, but I wouldn't expect it to be much.

    What do you expect them to do? Let you trade it in for free then they would have to sell it for less because no one would pay full price for an older model PSP when a newer one is there? Do you think they are willing to take that loss just to be nice? It's going to be you, the end user who has to take the loss and and either trade in your PSP for less so they can sell it for a profit or find someone to sell it to so you can pay for a new one.

    I heard they'll accept it without the box if you promise to hand over your first born child to them!

    Have you ever read Rumpelstiltskin?

    You can trade your PSP + cash for a new one. They will not under any circumstances just give you a new one for free.

    Everyone else who replied in this thread (who was being serious) has said this.

    Anyone else care to tell him in bold this time?

    Go on then. You won't get a free PSP for trading in an old one. Just as you can't take your Fat PSP and get a new Fat PSP. You will not be getting a free PSP-2000. No. No. No.

    Why stop at bold when you can use EXTRA LARGE BOLD TEXT IN RED!

    Sorry I wasn't being serious...it'd be like taking your old iPod or iPod nano into Apple and asking for a trade.

    Your best bet is to sell your old PSP on eBay or take it Gamespot/EB, then use the cash for the newer model.

    Well... maybe instead of asking a bunch of people who have no idea... namely us...

    Why not go in to one of those stores and ask them!

    very few BBs do trade in. Gamestop will give you $60 for your PSP, so you'll have to come up with the extra $100 and something (depending on what bundle you want).
