    Sony says PSP-3000 battery is the same as PSP-2000, so quit bitchin'

    Everyone and their mother have been bitching about the PSP-3000 and it’s supposedly atrocious battery life compared to the current gen because of the improved screen and rightfully so, IMO.

As such, I’ve decided that it’s a GREAT business phone. You could work two 8-hour days where you literally talked all day long and you’d still have an hour left over to call mom to… Read More
