Problem is, you might be hard pressed to find the PSP at the $250 price as most retailers are forcing bundled games upon the masses with Gamestop's prices ranging from $380-$520, EB's from $400-$430, and Wal-Mart's $360-$500. Best Buy looks like a good bet if you only want the $250 PSP but they're evil, so you have to contend with that.
