Core Pack and TA-082
Maybe this answer has been given somewhere else but I want if buying the Core Pack automatically means that you're given a TA-082 PSP.
I bought a PSP Core pack and people have been saying they've purposely bricked, or already had the idea of returning it to get a more 'compatible' PSP or 'homebrew/downgrader' friendly PSP.
Yeah, the chances of getting a TA-082 in a Core Pack are very high. Some have claimed they have recieved a non-TA-082 from a Core Pack, but they are lying/mislead.
I'm sure you've read the exact same thread I have which led me to making this post. I think what happen was he bought it used or something like that and it just so happens that a PSP was switched or a clever employee (or not so clever) did it. Dunno but I still want to know.
I am still under the impression it's like a 100% chance.
