Seriously, here's so many PSP defects reported:
> PSP is turned on, but does not start up!
> Dead pixels in the LCD
> Broken UMD drives
> Analog nubs not working (and some actually falling off)
> Screen has air bubbles and has dust on the inside
> Many users already reported that square button doesn't be pushed and returned as smoothly as other buttons do (that's natural cuz the button doesn't placed in the right position where the membrane switch-pattern suggests), and sometimes makes a creaking noise. What a heck is this faulty packaging?
> Creaking noise and button-stucking has reported not only in square button, but right trigger of "+" key and "L" button placed upside the body. Someone discovered another oddity in PSP's hardware design, as "L" button and "R" button is in reality not symmetrical in their assembly parts. While "R" button is constituted by a rubber membrane, white reinforcement part and the button trigger itself, "L" button lacks the white part. I'm not yet sure if this asymmetry explains the different feeling between "L/R" buttons and the "L" button's jerky movement in some units.
> THE MOST ENTERTAINING: UMD drive not closing completely, and the UMD, when the PSP is twisted, actually flies out!
Man... this is so sad.
And the winner is... Nintendo DS!
