A quick holiday tip for anyone out there thinking of putting a Sony PSP under the tree for a loved one this year. My son picked one up a couple of months ago (saved his own money for one) anyway, after about 3 weeks of use he dropped it in his room and the screen shattered... apparently they are very prone to broken screens when not handled delicately - ya right, like a 12 year old boy handles anything with care! Anyway, I'm a huge fan of saying a big NO to the extended warranty.. what a rip off that is! However, in this case, with this product it may be worth the extra $30... consider this as an option. If not, then definitely get a wrist strap, or even better, see if you can locate a rugged case to hold the device.. perhaps otterbox (right here in Ft Collins) has one. Some food for thought. PS... if anyone has a tip on a simple way to repair teh screen please feel free to share details!
