    So, I was playing crisis core about five minutes ago, when my PSP inexplicably shut down. I had the charger in, and this happened to me last night. I think my PSP uses up more juice than it can charge. [​IMG]

    Sounds more like you got a short or a battery issue to me. I doubt some flaw in the game could power it off completely.

    I was thinking the same. Could it be because my charger has bad voltage?

    i remember when i was playing a game with the charger plugged in if i move the lead my psp would go off.

    i think i got a loose connection with the charginng input.for it too go off.

    I might have the same problem then. The metal rod that goes into the charger is a little crooked.

    Does this only affect you when your playing crisis core?

    I'm not sure, but I'm assuming that it would do that with other games. I think it might've happened with GoW: COO.

    Does it happen as well when you play with the charger plugged, but no battery inserted? You should test that, you can narrow down the suspects, at least.
