So if you didn't already hear it, for some reason, even though I did everything perfectly, met the requirements, etc etc, my PSP bricked during the downgrader.
Anyway, I knew I could still return my PSP. So I when I went to go do so. At Zellers, the electronics dep't lady went to the back to grab a new PSP Value Pack, and she grabbed the box at the far back. I asked her if I could see the barcode for a second, and it had no letter. Also, it said it included a Gretzky UMD + Spiderman UMD - it was a 1.50 PSP!! So yeah, I returned it and drove home.
I jump on my bed and tear open the box, sweet, there are UMDs here... wait, why isn't there a memory stick? (There was the clear plastic case, but no MS) Meh, whatever, I thought. When I open the protective cardboard around the PSP, I notice that... THERE IS NO FREAKING PSP. They sold me an EMPTY BOX.
Wtf. So I phoned and they said that I could go to customer service and 'submit my report' but I should have checked before. What the hell? Yeah, as a customer I should definetly check the items I bought to make sure I'm not buying an empty box.
FFS. I swear I bought the box from the demo PSP they had set up months ago.
I'll post an update tommorow when I go see if they will let me return the box.
