1.75 years ago, I bought a PSP.

At the time, I was sorely disappointed. The games released for the system were, well, crap. The battery life? Not what I had expected. UMD movies were a joke.

For 1.5 years approximately, I spent my time actively avoiding getting the firmware updated, because the one thing it was good for - homebrew - Sony kept trying to kill.

However, in the past few months, that's changed. The one game I own for the purpose of playing on UMD I can actually use. Homebrew still works.

And as of the past few days, the true promise of the console - which is as a Portable Playstation - is realized. I can actually take my old library of Playstation titles, games I already bought, and convert them to run on the PSP.

The sad part? That Sony would still want to stop people from using product they have already bought (both the PSP and the games) together.

Boo to Sony. I give you no credit for the fun I'm now having with my PSP. With games I bought years ago.
