Giveaway Complete – January 2017 Giveaway – PSPi 1000 Version 2.1 Kit

This giveaway is complete. Congrats on winning, jcleary7

Look for the next giveaway on 2/1/17

I hope everyone had a great holiday. To celebrate the fact that the PSPi 1000 Version 3 board is nearing completion I’m going to give a couple of the PSPi 1000 Version 2.1 kits away (or an equivalent value of other boards of the winner’s choosing).

Here’s how this will work. Comment on this post. That’s all. I’m not concerned with what the comment says, just making a comment is enough. My goal here is to increase involvement on the site because we can do some great things by working together. The only thing I ask is that you spread the word of the giveaway.

Feel free to ask questions too. I’ll respond to them once the 100 comments are made.

The first kit will go to a random person once 100 people comment on the post.

  • January 4, 2017 at 3:10 pm

    Congrats on your progress and I look forward to the new board you are making.

  • January 4, 2017 at 5:01 pm

    Been following this project since you first posted your 2nd build on the Retropie forum. Hopefully going to buy the pcb once you’ve got it finished and are shipping to the UK!

  • January 4, 2017 at 5:05 pm

    Muito bom, você é formidável gostaria muito de uma placa dessas. Seria possível enviar para o Brasil?

  • January 4, 2017 at 5:06 pm

    I am a total newbie to Raspberry Pi but I am hooked now that I started playing with mine. I just ordered my first Pi Zero but I will need another to use for my new PSPi. I can’t wait for 1000.3 from what I have seen so far. Projects like this are what’s truly amazing about the Raspberry Pi.

  • January 4, 2017 at 5:23 pm

    Thanks for your efforts!
    I wouldn’t mind version 2 to keep me busy while I wait for version 3 to arrive!
    I plan on doing 2 or 3 of these PSP mods.

    Go Leafs Go!

  • January 4, 2017 at 5:33 pm

    Good thing to giveaway the 1000.2.1 kit to let more space to other features !

  • January 4, 2017 at 7:14 pm

    Awesome, I’d love to get my hands on one of these. Keep up the great work 🙂

  • January 4, 2017 at 9:32 pm

    I’m excited to see the final product and I’m patiently waiting for the 3001 mods (when you get around to it).

  • January 4, 2017 at 11:54 pm

    Great website! Love the PSPi idea, hoping to build one of my own, can’t wait till the new board comes out.

  • January 5, 2017 at 6:38 am

    Good job with the kits. Really looking forward to reading about your progress.

  • January 5, 2017 at 7:01 am

    I just came across your video on Youtube, and seeing what you’ve done with a raspberry pi and old psp is pretty sweet. And if I’d win this 😛 for sure would spread the word like a wildfire 😀

  • January 5, 2017 at 11:23 am

    Just found your Website a few weeks ago and love the projects. At the moment i am searching for an project for my dual curriculum so your giveaway would be a great opportunity.

    Greetings from germany 😛

  • January 5, 2017 at 3:43 pm

    I love your projects and ideas. Would love to win 🙂

  • January 5, 2017 at 3:54 pm

    I am about to start this project and would love a kit! Hope I win!!! =)

  • January 5, 2017 at 7:15 pm

    I just found your project a few days ago and read a lot of stuff about raspberryPi emulation and building it in a case and I want to build was so bad.

  • January 5, 2017 at 11:11 pm

    Even if I win this I’m still buying more boards. This is a great project that my children can learn on and end with an awesome toy when they are done! I’m amazed that you did this!!!! Thank you so much!

  • January 6, 2017 at 1:03 am

    Can’t wait to start my first psp mod! Two empty shells can’t wait either. Thanks for all the awesome info, dedication and research!

  • January 6, 2017 at 1:59 am

    Well done OtherMod! Good luck to the people who enter as well!

  • January 6, 2017 at 2:27 pm

    Awesome promotional gig! I will pass along the word as long as you keep up the good work. 😉

  • January 6, 2017 at 7:27 pm

    AWESOME! Thanks for the opportunity! Can’t wait to see ver 3 when it is complete.

  • January 6, 2017 at 8:49 pm

    Woohoo! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us.

  • January 7, 2017 at 12:02 pm

    watching this mod with anticipation, will it ever be possible to put a modded Pi 3 in a psp case?

  • January 7, 2017 at 3:00 pm

    hey, would love to have this lovely free kit!!

    A question: can you ship it to SAUDI ARABIA, where I am located?:)

  • January 7, 2017 at 4:32 pm

    Hi! I would love one of these kits! I would also still purchase a version 3 kit as I have multiple PSPs to work on! ( I have a very large collection of random consoles )

    Please consider me!

  • January 7, 2017 at 8:37 pm

    Alright brother, so i have a question or two. the first of which being, Do you have a tenative date you will start perorder on the new board or are you still making revisions? Also, id really like to get a full price for all components for a 1000.3 build minus the psp itself. anything would be helpfull. Thanks man.

  • January 8, 2017 at 5:54 am

    Can’t wait for the .3 board.

    Have you got your next project planned?

  • January 8, 2017 at 7:40 am

    Looking forward to ordering the version 3 board. Keep up the good work!

  • January 8, 2017 at 10:00 am

    Holy cow!!!!
    I am a complete noobie with using Raspberry Pi, but have been doing research so I can put together a retropie into an old NES console I have.
    That’s how I found your work and about all I can say is WOW!!
    I would absolutely love to win a kit and give this a try! I would without a doubt be over my head and that’s a great thing because I like to back myself into a cornners with new projects to force myself to learn new skill sets.
    Win or not, much much much respect to you and the work you have done!

  • January 8, 2017 at 7:11 pm

    Hey there, I believe I stumbled upon your video on PSPi 1000.1 Youtube video a while back, when looking for Game Boy Pi Zero projects, and have been following the incremental updates since then. Congratulations on all of your progress and dedication to the PSP form factor. It may not be as hip and retro cool as a DMG Game Boy, but it is definitely more ergonomic. By the way, your latest and greatest iteration of the PSPi (1000.3) looks very clean, user friendly, and professional. Also, I just wanted to say that your tutorials are very meticulous. Furthermore, your newest kit, the Raspberry Pi Portable Kit, is basically the solution to the Pi Project that I had sitting on the back burner; then again, I suppose the entire kit would be more ideal as it also involves an audio solution for the Zero. Finally, have you ever considered selling complete PSPi modded consoles? I’m sure there would be plenty of people out there who would want a complete solution, without any off the hassle of building it themselves.

  • January 9, 2017 at 6:27 am

    Great job on the custom pcb.
    Can’t wait to buy it. 😀
    Greetings from Germany


  • January 9, 2017 at 8:04 am

    Hope to win the giveaway, but I’m here to say thanks for what you are doing with this project!

  • January 9, 2017 at 10:54 am

    What you do is awesome!! After watching your YouTube video on this kit, I would love to get my hands on it!!

  • January 9, 2017 at 12:11 pm

    This is a cool project. Just took up soldering and hoping to learn to build one myself if I gain the skills. Thanks for sharing!

  • January 9, 2017 at 2:02 pm

    Just stumbled on this from YouTube. Very excited to see what new features are added in the future.

  • January 9, 2017 at 3:32 pm

    It’s nice to see how this project has evolved. Keep up the good work!

    Does this board work on the pi 3?

  • January 10, 2017 at 1:56 am

    I’ve been spreading the word of since you first appeared on the Sudomod site. Keep up the good work can’t wait to see how the v3 kit turns out!

  • January 10, 2017 at 11:31 am

    I’m just posting to help get you to 100! Keep working hard this is amazing stuff.

  • January 10, 2017 at 1:04 pm

    I’ve got a PSP gathering dust – I’d love to give this a go!

  • January 10, 2017 at 5:54 pm


    je trouve la conversion impressionnant, à tel point qu’avec un pote on essaye de suivre tes traces et de créer notre propre version de la PSPi.
    Tes tutos sont clairs et bien documentés et c’est très appréciable dans le domaine du modding.
    On attend avec impatience la version 1000.3, et peut-être qu’avec un peu de chance on pourra bénéficié d’une 1000.2 pour avancer sur notre projet. ;op
    Bonne continuation et fait nous rêver!!


  • January 10, 2017 at 8:49 pm

    Ready to get my giveaway PSPi Kit Version 1000.2.1. Come to B1g P4pp4 and enjoy the Caribbean…

  • January 11, 2017 at 1:32 am

    Thanks for this “gift”. Your PSPI is a great project and I hope your new version will be a great success for you !!!

  • January 11, 2017 at 2:47 am

    My sausages turned to gold! Also, it’s good to hear that the new board is closers than close, but rather nearly ready.

  • January 11, 2017 at 6:22 am

    Amazing idea ! 🙂 Can’t wait for 1000.3, I was just checking if something new about final boards I am happy that project is still active. Just seen PSP1000 with defective LCD and UMD mech for around 8USD + 3USD shipping so I think it’s time to make my own PSPi with my zero 🙂

  • January 11, 2017 at 7:34 am

    I can’t wait to be able to buy the 1000.3 board. I do like that you are running a contest for a 1000.2.1 kit though. Please enter me into the contest.

  • January 12, 2017 at 1:05 am

    Great project I have a broke PSP 1001 I would like to make in to a pspi

  • January 12, 2017 at 2:17 am

    I just found your site through your Youtube videos. You are a true Renaissance Man. I see all the Raspberry Pi case mods and think to myself “I wish I had the skills to do that. Keep up the great work.

  • January 12, 2017 at 3:06 am

    I can’t wait until the new version 3 kits are ready but I’ll take a free version 2 kit if u can spare it

  • January 12, 2017 at 3:37 am

    i am surprised by the short amount of comments ! who wouldnt want to relive their childhood memories playing this awesome games!

  • January 12, 2017 at 8:01 pm

    I have been looking at portable machines to build with an rpi and this is by far my favorite build! I loved the PSP when i was in HS and love retropie on my home tv. This would be great for gaming on the go! I hope I win!

  • January 14, 2017 at 2:06 pm

    Hey, I would love to get a free Kit. I like your work and I like the RaspPi.

  • January 15, 2017 at 1:15 am

    That’s a kick ass project I want to try this I’m about to finish my game boy pi but this looks cool too can’t wait to build this next

  • January 15, 2017 at 7:47 am

    I would love to buy the v3 (even if it’s a bit more expensive than V2). But a V2 is closer to the DIY style so it has more value (in terms of satisfaction at the end).

  • January 15, 2017 at 7:54 am

    I’d love to have one, i think that PSP has the best form factor for an handheld console… and your mod brings everything to another level.

  • January 15, 2017 at 4:44 pm

    You are doing some great work here! Would love to get a free kit, but of course I’m going to buy the new version when it’s ready!! 😉

  • January 17, 2017 at 3:03 am

    Loving the site. I’ll laugh if I win while I am waiting to build mine. I gues the kids will like it.

  • January 17, 2017 at 3:07 am

    I’d like to win one. You should sell them completed. I’d buy it.

  • January 17, 2017 at 4:39 am

    Wow, I just googled pi in psp to see if it has been done and here you are at the end of your project. Nice 😀

  • January 17, 2017 at 12:56 pm

    i really wanna win for my little brother he really wants a pspi for his birthday!

  • January 17, 2017 at 2:29 pm

    I ordered two psp’s so i can start the process of this mod gonna have some fun doing it love the work your doing cant wait for the version 3

  • January 17, 2017 at 6:45 pm

    Hello othermod :). I just discovered your project on Youtube, that’s great ! Thank you for your website and tutorials. Hope to see more about pspi with this giveaway ;).

  • January 18, 2017 at 8:22 am

    I was looking for projects on youtube to do a console with a raspberry pi zero and I found yours, very good job!

    Je cherchais des projets sur youtube pour faire une console avec un raspberry pi zero et j’ai trouvé le votre, très bon travail!

  • January 18, 2017 at 11:29 am

    Would love a kit. Been looking for something to do with my pi0

  • January 18, 2017 at 12:03 pm

    Whoa just found this by searching what to do with the Pizero, awesome project!

  • January 18, 2017 at 12:21 pm

    first and 100th comment! Still would love a free kit!

  • January 18, 2017 at 2:00 pm

    Would it be possible to fit version3 inside a psp2000 shell? Just had this in mind…

    2nd post btw… just to keep fair chances

    • othermod
      January 18, 2017 at 2:23 pm

      Most likely yes. I actually have dead 2000 and 3000 PSPs here and I plan to create the same board for them. I won’t know for sure until I tear them apart. Once I get the 1000.3 all-in-one board finished this is my next focus.

  • January 18, 2017 at 3:49 pm

    Dude this is a great project. I’d love to have a chance at a kit!

  • January 21, 2017 at 11:23 am

    You’ve made an otherwise disagreeable week pretty fantastic. Thank you so very much!

  • January 30, 2017 at 7:47 pm

    I like this idea of this being a great retro pi for games inside a PSP1000. To keep things simple and sticking to the retro gaming theme, this may also spark new retro MMO game development with a wifi connection?
