When I turn on my DS, it is ready to go. It’s charged, and it doesn’t require an update. I just put the game in and start playing and it’s where I want it to be.
PSP on the otherhand… if I don’t charge it every other day, the battery, for some strange reason, and it has done this since I bought the thing, will drain out and I’ll have to recharge it. No matter what I do, I have to recharge it every couple days.
To make things worse, now it’s completely resetting, requiring me to input the date and time from scratch. Why it does this, I do not know. If it’s an issue with the battery itself, then it further reinforces my point.
But, okay, fine. I’ll recharge it. And, while I recharge it, I’ll play one of the new games I have. So I pop in the new game. Oh… wait a second… it tells me I can’t play the new game. Why can I not play the game? Because I have X.X01 version installed, and I need to install X.X03 version to play it.
Okay, fine. I’ll install the new version. CLICKY.
Would I like to install the thing? @#$% yeah, why else would I have clicked on the damn thing and waited 3 minutes for it to load? Let’s install this damned thing and get to the game.
Wait… what? What is this? I CAN’T install? I can’t install the damned new version of the firmware that you DEMAND that I install because the system battery is “too low” ? The same battery that, for reasons unknown, likes to drain itself empty every couple days? The same battery that has a constant and consistent source of energy running to it as I read this, because it’s plugged in?
So, great. First you drain my battery. Then you make me re-set up the system. Then you tell me I can’t even play my game I bought until I upgrade the system. Then you tell me I CAN’T upgrade the system right now.
You know what? I have a DS sitting right next to you, Mr. PSP. And I have better games to play, too.
