honestgamer It's not all an elaborate ruse, some misguided attempt to establish for myself an online persona of dubious quality. I really am dull. If you don't find that unbearable, though, this is my blog that examines just how truly boring I can be.

Title: R.I.P. Jason's PSP (2007-2010)
Posted: January 01, 2010 (06:58 PM)
Tonight, at 5:52 (PST), I decided to return to Half-Minute Hero with the intent of playing through more of it and eventually drafting a review. Alas, it was not to be. I flipped the switch to turn on the system, but nothing happened. The battery has simply given up the ghost. It will not accept a charge, and in fact the system has been plugged in for a few days now. The system is toast.

This is actually the second PSP that I had owned, following a first one that was briefly owned and sold at launch. I bought this one a year later or so, when more games were actually available for the system, and it has been a fun run.

At this point, I don't see the value in making an investment in a battery. If I get a working PSP again, it'll be a new PSP-3000 rather than another old 1000 with its terrible load times. That won't likely happen for awhile, though. I need time to properly grieve, and to build up resources for such an investment.

So long, brave PSP. I hardly knew thee!

Edit: $9.76 for a replacement battery (shipped) means I'm going to give that a shot first. My PSP may yet live!

I need to send my PSP back to Sony for a screen replacement. I've got to do that this week before my warranty runs out.

In other news, I'm highly debating opening up my PS3 and changing out the 15 blade fan for a 19 blade fan. It would run so much quieter. Sony's definitely the maker of cool products, but I still miss the days of simplicity where you didn't have to worry about crap like dying batteries and loud fans.
