A few days ago, the assistant Web developer, Eben Bathalon, shot me an instant message asking about the coolest PSP hacks (since he’d just purchased the PSP and wanted to start tinkering with it). I sent him to the few sites I knew and pointed him to a story that Eric Hellweg wrote for us about whether Sony would crack down on these.
