Well, technically my mum scored it, but:
A hour ago a delivery guy came around, handed me a package, I signed it etc etc. I saw mum's name was on it, so I figured it was just another gift that some random dude from some dating site. I noticed the Sony logo on the package, looked at the invoice and saw "PSP base pack white" and was shocked to think that some random person would waste a relatively large sum of money on my mum that she's never met in real life. I looked at the invoice more carefully and noticed two things of interest:
1) The price/value columns have nothing printed in them
2) The customer account number is 5,000,000
Admittedly I didn't notice 2) until a fair few minutes later, and I was thinking of why the hell a PSP would arrive and she never informed me about it.
Then it hit me.
She just scored a free PSP.
I don't know how the hell that was possible, but it's sitting on the kitchen bench, unopened. I don't know what firmwire version it has or what she's gonna do with it, but I know that it doesn't suit her lifestyle at all (since she doesn't get much time to play video games nowadays) and there's a fairly good chance that she will give it to me because she won't have a logical use for it that I can currently think of.
I should note that she's still at work and when I tried to ring her mobile, she didn't respond. I don't even know if she's aware that she just got a free PSP.

Fortunately you can hack it up to downgrade the firmware to 1.50 and then upgrade it with a custom firmware that is a mixture of 1.50 and 3.03, the latest firmware and plays every homebrew game/app without problems. Win-win situation there.
Nice. It was running 1.70 before I sold it - at that point there were no downgraders for that version and I didn't want to brick it before I sold it.
$10 says that you completely missed the title of this thread and the entire content of the original post other than the word "PSP".
Oh, I forgot. PSP games and UMD movies are free. Silly me.
Though I was kinda just trying to offer you some support because your mum wanted to keep it for herself.
