Buuuuut... I was thinking about getting a PSP, so I can buy UMDs and play them that way, and also I like having a full CFW (I dont know why) and also so I can rip and play PS1 games as well.
But if I get a PSP, that's 50-70$ gone, and that will take 80% of my Vita's usage away. (I only play Silent Hill: Book of Memories, and P4: Golden on it, besides PSP isos)
So do you fine people think I should go ahead and get a PSP
(If so, what model?) or just stay with the Vita?
I have two PSP's (the 1000 and GO) as well as my Vita and they all get a lot of usage still.
The PSP Go is a great system. You can install up to 6.20 permanent CFW on it, it can play psp games online through PRO-C and it's pretty nifty when emulating (30+FPS on the latest revision of Daedalusx64). Personally, I would recommend the GO. It's small, light weight, hard wearing and fits in the pocket nicely along with having good speeds while playing games. It also has 16GB internal storage and can be upgraded with another 16gb. The downside however is that you would need to modify plugins when you download them since the path for internal storage is different. The screen is also pretty small (the vita screen is actually about the size of the entire
I mainly use my 1k for Manga and emulating older consoles. It has amazing battery life with a few plugins and is fully customisable (with 6.60 Permanent CFW). It's also nice if you want to look into hacking at all, since it's completely safe. Even if you brick it you can recover it (trust me, I've done some idiotic things with that console). It's good for playing games, though it's slower than the 2k or 3k. The slowness of it though isn't THAT noticeable really. The downside to the 1k is that you cannot use PRO-C and play PSP Games online.
I think I'd recommend the 2k to be honest. It has already been said, but the 2k is probably the way to go. The 1k is great, but lacks the power of the 2k and since you wish to play games and that rather than looking into the technical sides of the vita, then 2k is a good option. I would say the GO, since it's probably my most used of my PSP's, however it's a lot smaller and many people don't like that and also has a few issues.
With regards to not using your Vita as much... Well, it most certainly is nicer to play games on the Vita than the PSP. Larger screen, more colors, second analogue and the sort. You could get a PSP and simply play PS1 and Emulators on it, while keeping the Vita for PSP Games? Something like that.
There's still a lot of different uses to be had from each console depending on how you look at it and your intentions. I'd say get a PSP and enjoy that as well.
