Well now I'm concerned since I've never expected anything to happen to mine... I've had my PSP since I was a young teen, but I can't remember the year. It still works, but it doesn't hold charge very well. And I keep having to put the date in all over again. But otherwize, everything is fine.
Mine is fine aside from the X button not responding sometimes, as if there's a bit of debris in there (if I shake it hard a couple of times it works like new). It's annoying, and I plan on getting a new one soon but would regret paying more than 50 bucks for it.

Still have my 3000 that I bought in like 09 and it still works like a charm. Still have a working extended life battery too.
I'm secretly hoping that one day someone will launch a Kickstarter to faithfully reproduce these, albeit without the Sony logo on them.
3000s or extended batteries?
The extended batteries are cheaply available on Amazon and Ebay. Just buy PSP-1000 batteries and an extended battery door for the 3000. Probably made in the same Chinese factories that made them under contract for Sony, but without the Sony label.
