    Not bad considering some stores selling imports for $490.
    After using mine for a week I would be prepared to pay $430 for it, it is truly a excellent machine with top quality

    $430, wow... I'm trying to recall how much the Xbox and PS2 were at launch. Still, for a gaming console that does so much more, I think it is worth it!

    $430 is ridiculous.

    I found this information on another forum that I won't say but I will quote it. Looks like it will be better to be imported from another country or purchased at DVDCrave instead.

    LOL, while that could work, I myself was a bit worried about feeding 240V over wire that's rated for 110V. Replacement AC cord is only a few bucks - great that the PSP's AC power adaptor thingy comes with standard input plugs.

    Could anyone who bought a PSP from Liksang tell me if they had to pay GST or any duties when it came through customs.

    Agreed, those prices are ridiculous - At this moment nearly half a year off the release date in europe and aus you could get a psp value pack for under $400 delivered.

    So does the US and Jap PSP have the good Sharp LCD?? Will the Aus (Europe) PSP have the Samsung one??

    Cos if the US has the good screen, I'll be ordering one from there soon.

    Isn't it the Jap ver with sharp and US with samsung?

    Anyway, I'm looking for a 1GB Memory stick duo for the PSP.
    Theres 3 brands, Apacer, Sandisk or Sony.

    Sony being the most epensive, so I probably won't get a sony one.
    SanDisk looks good at a decent price.
    Then today I did a search again on Staticice and found that Apacer are now producing memory stick duos.

    Anyone know which ones are good and worth the money?

    Where on ebay are people getting the value pack + game for under $400?? All the ones i've seen so far have all been over $400. Can someone link me to the right direction - is there any particular seller?
