PSP update of sorts

PSP SystemIt has been a while since I wrote much of anything significant about the PSP, which means it has not been on for a while. One of my biggest gripes with the PSP is that once the battery drains, you have to rest the date and time. In this day and age, I do not get that. It is a minor issue, but since battery life is not very long, if your system sits idle, the PSP will drain the battery, and you will have to rest the date and time the next time you power up the system.

This sounds like the perfect pick up and play game. I have to tell myself reasons to justify keeping my PSP. Maybe this one will do the trick.
