    1. there is a letter on the box that indicates the production run the psp came from, that also affects what firmware they have in it.

    You want a psp that has K or under. check here

    A = 1.50
    B = 1.51
    C = 1.52
    D = 1.52
    E = 1.52
    F = 2.00
    G = 2.01
    H = 2.50
    I = 2.60
    J = 2.70
    K = 2.71
    L = 2.81

    2. Stores sell psp's according to there stock, they only renew them once they have sold there previous one, so you will have to look around.

    3. you have to downgrade to 1.50 so that you can upgrade to the custom firmwares, they all use the 1.50 as a base when upgrading.
