RIP PSP UMD

So my PSP is a deader. Doesn't appear to like UMDs anymore. Still boots up and such, but no go on the games that I have. I can read from the memory stick, but who cares, really? I don't need a massive device to play mp3s or movies, I have a laptop and ipod for that.

I only got this thing in January. What about the warranty, you ask? 3 months. So, yeah, that's no good.

My plan: Wait until the psp 2 or whatever comes out and pick up a psp super cheap on ebay or something. Or not at all. I'm pretty disappointed in this, I might put it in for servicing, but come on, 3 months warranty? Makes me not want to keep the thing at all. I have a good number of games for the platform, which are now worthless. It's not even homebrewable as I can't load the GTA cartridge to load a hack off the umd. The PSP is no more. It is an Ex-PSP. It is a brick.

My PSP has a small crack which is creeping towards the screen. I went to the Sony store to see how much it would be to get it fixed. The response: "It's not worth fixing it, get a new one"

Put some crazy glue on the crack. That should freeze it and keep it from getting to the screen.

Bad luck Man, I just discovered the awesome power of the PSP. Me and my colleges have updated a few PSP's to Version 3.03 OE-C and we are able to download and install all types of applications, Games, emulator, PSP Win Vista, movies and everything.

This device is pretty cool, i just got a 8GB memory stick and we where able to fit 24 UMD games, 4 Skate videos, 42 MP3 songs, 12 sexy backgrounds and 42 SNES games!! and I still got 420 MB's available.

Get PSP 420!!
