It finally happened. After almost three years of excessive abuse and fairly steady play, my PSP-1000 has reached the point of no return. It still runs, but not well, and at this point I don’t think I’ll ever get it to read Memory Sticks.
Rather than try to fix the damn thing, I decided to replace it whole hog with a brand new 3000. Normally I’d be the first to smack myself for such a sudden lack of fiscal prudence, but when I have 20 games for a console, with more coming, I tend to lose the urge to shop around (at least at a certain price point).
Anyway, I’m enjoying the new 3000 quite a bit. I can see the screen problems that gamers have reported whenever it plays a 2d game, but I haven’t played enough of them to determine whether this will be a true detriment. → Show me the reading!
