I’m jealous, how much did you get the lot for?

Nice to see Tales of the World and Tales of Rebirth there - ended up selling my copies just because I was struggling to make the time for them, but I’d love to hear what you made of them.

I got Boku no Natsuyasumi 4 today and I thought it was interesting that the game’s manual explicitly asks players to set the colour space on their system to Normal before playing, which implies the developers were designing the graphics in mind for the colour gamut of the older PSP-1000 and PSP-2000 screens and were conscious of the fact the newer model’s much wider default colour gamut would mess with that.

I’m surprised Sony didn’t just set a flag in the OS for games released after the PSP-3000 to automatically switch to the newer or older gamut if developers only targeted one.


Finally had the batteries come in and unfortunately the problem still persists. I found that if I turn the PSP on and then put down the hold/lock switch, the system stays on indefinitely which makes me suggest there’s something wrong with the power switch.

You could try taking it apart and cleaning up the power switch with alcohol and contact cleaner. It could also be something wrong with the power board or the connection to the main board.

Thanks, I’ll try to do a teardown soon and post pics.

Took me a while to get around to it, but it turned out to be a fried ribbon cable. I tried replacing the power switch at first which didn’t change anything so the ribbon was the only culprit. Comparing it to the replacement and it was visibly darker. No idea how it happened though.

Just won an eBay auction for a Go and a cradle for $220AUD. Pretty stoked because the cradles seem to go for that alone.

One question - are all Go component cables created equal? I see they look different to the standard PSP ones but was wondering if there was anything else to look out for.

Ah man I wish I could find a Go. Being able to use the Dualshock 3 while playing PS1 games would be amazing. I think the component cables for the Go are different from all the other ones, but the same for all Go’s.

the component output on the PSP is a tad soft, which honestly I think really works in its favour. it’s even softer than S-video on a PS1, so you get an image with great colors, with the softness of composite without any of the dot crawl. seems to be a happy medium for a lot of PS1 games
