    So as not to confuse you, I will keep the really fun stuff out of this.

    You will need a memory stick to save games. If all you want to do is save games, get the smallest capacity possible. If you plan on watching movies, I suggest a 2 gb one.

    For appropriate games, I do not know what is available around where you live, so I say follow the ESRB rating, but not too tight.

    I reccomend Star Wars Battlefront II, it is amazing, in my opinion, however, should the 9 year old get their hands on it, remind them they are only blasting virtual StormTroopers.

    Well, it's really confusing and is not easy to do. It's called Pandora's battery, and can alter the firmware of a PSP to run games off the memory stick. Since you do not have a fat PSP, it will not be easy to get your hands on one.

    Still interested?

    You can download just about anything and it will run on this. Without modding, you can play movies, pictures, game demos and music. Only with modding can you play more than demos, and on top of that, you can play other consoles on it, via emulators.
