    OG is raising money to form a non profit community interest company enabling us to preserve more history than ever before!

    Unfortunately, like most things in life this is going to cost money and we're asking for some help from the community. All users will be given donator status, along with early updates and depending on how much you help us with we'll try to chuck in some free merch!

    This will cost us roughly $850 for two years including business address/phone number etc which is needed to register a business bank account within the UK.

    You can help us by making a custom pledge, or by making a general pledge as it all helps us greatly. We're happy for a one time donators via Ko-Fi, Patreon asks monthly so please be aware. To prevent charge backs we're unable to accept Paypal at this time. Although once live this will be sorted too!

    One time donations can be sent via our Ko-Fi,



    Or for monthly please visit our Patreon, Ko-Fi is preferred as they charge us less fee's. Become a Patron of Obscure Gamers!
  • The Obscure Gamers 2020 Light and Dark themes are now live! Please report any bugs and make any suggestions you may have to a member of staff.

Hi, I've posted about it before on Discord but felt a thread was needed here.

A week ago I saw a listing on Facebook for a PS Vita, with my luck it ended up being not only a PDEL but a Not For Sale PDEL, I knew I had to have it and here it is:

Sadly the system does not boot, upon further inspection and a teardown I have come to know that the system itself has water damage, I have cleaned it up as best as I could but it would still not boot.

All of the screws on the outside were stripped and different sizes/colours, it is also missing the serial/model stickers, luckily it seems the inside is untouched.

I wonder if there's much corrosion under those rf shields, would be a good step to remove them and have a peek

From the labels it is not the exact same one that was used for FCC tear-down (https://fccid.io/AK8PDE1001A/Internal-Photos/Internal-photos-1566061) but it would make sense considering it was opened and obviously raped with those screws etc.. only theories though

still very similar markings/labels etc.. so yes, most probably from the same 'production run' and thus a DEM-3000Pxx model I'd bet

Breaks my heart to see a PDEL model in this condition :(. If you ever come to sell it, gimme a shout as I could still use it as a display piece.
