Thats weak. If they don't fix this i see no reason 2 buy a new psp. My old one may not have that awesome new LCD screen but those scan lines look just as bad as playing my old PSP in direct sunlight, most likely those scan lines look worse because at least i can get rid of the glare/blank screen by just moving around.
Well the screenshot above seems to suffer from ghosting, I can see the figure seemingly smeared, either from old position or because the display is simply messed up and color is bled into the pixels adjacent to where the figure is.
I wish some owners would speak up about how noticable this is in practice. If this is only visible on some scenes in games then not such a big deal, if it's always visible... bad news for Sony.
