The article deals with the complaints of users on Sony's next-generation PSP-3000 handheld video game console. The updated PSP, which launched October 14, 2008 in North America, introduced a brighter screen, a built-in microphone and some cosmetic changes. The PSP-3000 was able to fix the "ghosting," or double image, an issue on the previous version, but now it faces problems with scan lines and jagged edges in the screen. The problem has found mixed feedback from gamers, with some outraged at the update while others claim that it didn't bother them.
