The 3000 have been discounted now along with the PSPGo. I would imagine finding a brand new 3000 for a decent price would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

did you mean discounted or discontinued, if you ment discontinued I was sure that the 3000 was still in production along with the e1000

No the PSP 3000 has been discontinued as of October last year. There is a few old stock kicking around but they are like finding a needle in a haystack, for example GAME and Comet had the PSP 3000 on offer over Christmas for £39.99 but they were selected stores only and according to GAME employees the stock levels were so low that it was not worth bothering about.

With the Vita's release just around the corner the PSP is now aimed at kids and young teenagers hence the move to the E1000/street model. To be honest for £85 it's a bargain as long as you are not looking for wireless or Internet interactivity. I bought my daughter one for Christmas and sure it doesn't have the premium look and feel of my PSP 2000 but the screen is pretty decent infact it's alot brighter and had better contrast compared to the 2000 and the interlacing issue that plagued the 3000 series is gone as the new screen in the E1000 is progressive and not interlaced like previous models.

The only issue I have with it is that the screen has a poor viewing angle from the bottom but other than that for £85 it's a decent purchase and your only choice for a new psp.

You could try Amazon they have some 3000's in stock but they seem to selling at a premium price for limited new models available in stock.

i was fortunate to find the Vibrant Blue PSP Harry Potter bundle a month ago in Sainsburys for £55 (including staff discount)

 

It had been sitting in the back for over a year with no takers.

 

Vibrant Blue PSP 3000

Protective Carry Case

Harry Potter Half Blood Prince Game

 

Not bad for £55
