    Does anyone know where to buy a better d-pad or d-pad/faceplate combo? I want to try some fighting games, but the d-pad on the psp sucks big time.

    Maybe there's like a joy stick you can buy to plaster on top of your PSP.

    I remember seeing a joystick you could plug into the PSP's USB port, unfortunately you needed a specific firmware or something..

    point is it looked a lot better than the PSP's dpad

    I'll probably end up trying the self-mod from ufighterx. Looks easy enough.

    The newer PSP's already have the mod done, they just lifted the plastic that the button "sensor" pad is on with another layer under it of plasitic about the thickness of overhead projector film. Simpler to cut a square than cutting out the cross, too.

    Right now, I want to stab a little screw. Ugh...I'm going to have to go buy another glass fixing kit for the tiny screwdriver.

    Get a precision screwdriver set instead, got my set of 6 for ~$10 and it has lasted me years, as well as taken out screws that a jewelers set breaks on.
