Damn, just as I was adding in a more CA tone to my post you reply.

Now I just need to steal some cash for a memory stick. I don't have a credit card so I can't order off any fancy web deals with coupons to get a 20GB stick for 5 cents.

Yeah but I dropped one of my PSPs (luckily within 7 days of buying it so I returned it for a new one) and got 7 dead pixels right away. Then I turned it on again later and there were more. I dropped my DS a bunch of times and nothing. Now I'm afraid to move my PSP.

You never see it when it's on because it's backlit and there's a pattern that's pretty unnoticable on the touch screen but it also diffuses light so it makes scratches less apparent, and after owning a regular DS for as long as it's existed, and a DS lite for the same, I only have 2 scratches on the classic that are small and none on the lite, everything so far has wiped away. I use the stylus or my fingers or fingernails and play a bunch of games on each, wifey gets the classic.

You can at least do it, which makes it a viable MP3 player. I use a Cowon A2 as my MP3 player so if I can fit that in my pocket I can fit the DS Lite in. It's not that big though. Other than a wallet, that, and keys, what do you need? Fuck a cell phone, if I want to talk to your ass then I'll get at you somehow. I don't need cancer. Some guy at my work has a grey patch on his head right where you put a cell phone on. It's an exact rectangle.

Do you have a PSP-2000? Or a new battery? I wonder how long you can keep it without using it before fucking up your battery. Weird that it happened on both my PSPs.

I did it, but aside from playing a few emus I haven't really looked into it. Is there anything really that great? One of my PSPs is hacked and one isn't, maybe I need a different memory card than the 32MB to make pandora work, I've tried everything.

Well I have a bunch, but I don't really see any system sellers.

I inherited one, and bought the first one just because I need to own every Wipeout game ever.

I just can't get the firmware loading part to work. I put in the pandora's battery, and I've tried making the memory stick about 8 times but no matter what it won't load off it. Some people say it's cause you need a memory stick pro duo, and the 32MB is just a memory stick duo. I've got 1.50 stuff to work fine, but my other PSP is 3.90 or something.
