    Well maybe not but I am quite upset with them to say the least.

    I bought a PSP along time ago and recently got the internet.

    After registering my Wii, DS, and other nintendo products I decided to go over to the Playstation site and register my PSP.

    Once I got there I seen that there was an update for my PSP ( 3.0 or somthing like that). So I thought " Oooo.. I better set up my internet on my PSP to download the update". After setting up the connection, I tested the connection to make sure it worked. No problem.

    I then tried to do a system update like they showed me on their site. Didn't work. Some kind of system failure. So then I noticed that on the site thee was another way to instal the update. By downloading it on to your PC and then pasting it into your memory card. Again didn't work. So then I decided to delete the update on my memory card. That didn't work. I couldn't format my memory card.

    Begining to panic I decided to e-mail Playstation... I get a message about 10 minutes later telling me that I would be receiving an e-mail from someone within 48 hours. Well...I'm not that patient so I decided to call them on the 1-800 number.

    10 minutes later I'm talking to some guy, who in my opinion, doesn't sound like he really wants to be at work today. He tells me to take my memory card out. Put it back in, try to do system update. BooM!!! "Sorry but your gonna have to send it to us to be repaired and it's gonna cost you 120 bucks". !!!

    Ah man does that ever stink. It's gonna cost me 120 dollars to fix something that I barely even use. I almost feel like selling it to a pawn shop and just buying more Wii products and be done with Playstation all together.

    Anyways..mybe I'm overeacting about the whole pawn shop thing because I wouldn't want to push my problem on anyone else but I'm pretty frustrated.

    Depending on how long you've had it:

    <30 days (return to shop and get it swapped over/refunded)
    <90/365 - (sony should repair for free.
    option 3 - kick up a fuss about how the update caused your psp to muck up and demand that they fix it for free.

    I say if you don't use it, go to your local gaming shop and trade it in for credit/cash and buy more Nintendo products. :)

    That sounds like your best bet. It wasn't your damn fault that your PSP crapped out on you when you were downloading an official Sony firmware update. That's just crazy.

    First did you have the PSP power cord plugged in while you were updating? You need to have it plugged in. Also since the update failed are you still able to do anything with it? Can you play games?

    this happened to mine also, i tried to return it and say it was broken from the start but i was too lazy, i tried taking out the battery and memory card for an hour and nothing ( this works if you brick your pc by changing some BIOS options by taking out the internal battery for an hour and back in) well it wasnt working so i thought it was hopeless. I kept the battery out for about 2 or 3 days and i forgot about it and then when I came across it again I popped the battery and memory card back in and it booted right up, I needed to update again because it was reset to default. I hope this helps it might save ya $120

    lol free games on psp too bad i bought mine with a newer version on it. I have absolutley no problem udating my PSP. I just got 3.01 about 3 days ago, and i must say it is pretty cool.

    "Also.I failed to mention that I once formated the memory card using my PC but I doubt that would cause my system to screw up like that"

    umm, why? Even if it is safe to do that why do it? just do it on the psp they have that option you know. also what you could do is (assuming you have a friend with a psp or another memory card) you could use their memory card with the patch still on the memory card and udate that way. It overides the version on your PSP system not on the memory card so that might be a possible thing to do.

    If I cared about the money Sony makes maybe I wouldn't. I wouldn't do that to Ninty(nintendo) though.
