I just recently purchased an PSP 3000 and forgot i need a memory stick for it. So What would be the best memory stick for a PSP 3000 I only have one game so far which is crisis core and plan to purchase resistance when it comes out. Thanks for any help.

Any memory stick should do fine. I personally favour the SanDisk brand since it's usually half the price of Sony's official brand for the same storage size. Can usually get a 2gb Memory Stick Pro Duo for $15-20 at your local Walmart, which is more than enough for save files and some music.

Are you going to be storing pictures, videos, and music on the device? If so, go for a 16gb or at least 8 gb SanDisk. Pretty great price here.

If just game saves, a 512 mb would do you just fine, and can be found for 6 bucks

About how many game saves can each of those memory sticks hold? Thanks in advance..

Most PSP games use upwards of 1mb per game save, so 512mb will do fine for just general gaming.

I have yet to encounter a PSP save that was that large. They generally seem to be in the 500kb range. So, needless to say, a 512mb stick would much more then suffice if you just use it for game saves.

It all depends what you plan to use your PSP 3000 for games,music,films or photos ??. I have a 4G but the saves for games are small..... its your call

You should treat youself to more games UMDs are so cheap now :)
