All PSP models are or were available in a basic package called the "Core Pack" (sometimes also referred to as the "Standard Pack.") This pack contains the same contents for all three models, though the PSP-1000 also included a printed manual when first released. The PSPgo Core pack does not include a separate battery pack, as the battery is not user-replaceable.
- PSP hardware in Piano Black (PSP-1000, 2000, 3000 and PSPgo), in Ceramic White (PSP-1000 in Japan), or in Pearl White (PSPgo)
