Ok, lately, my psp has been running really slowly and continues to freeze. I bought it at ebgames and decided to call them up and see if it is covered by my warrantee. I tell the guy my whole story and he slowly whispers "brick it". I say"WHAT", and he says "brick it, break it, drop it on the floor". I'm thinking to myself, what kind of employee is this. It was so hilarious. He said that firmware problems were not covered by the warantee and that the only way to fix it was to brick it.
