I’m at my nephew’s place for a bit and he just ‘bricked’ his PSP. He put in a game and it started to do a firmware update… he didn’t understand what it was doing and was worried it was going to mess up his PSP, so he turned the power off.

Now, it won’t even power up. I’m thinking we are screwed at this point… unless I can find some solution on the Internet… but I’m going to head down to the local Sony store tomorrow to see what they have to say. I find it hard to believe that the PSP is so fragile that a nine year old can completely render it unusable by just pressing the power button at the wrong time.

It seems we aren’t the only people having this problem
