PSP Skype Leak

Sony's PlayStation Portable should receive the ability to make voice over IP calls through Skype in the near future, the company itself has inadvertently leaked through its own CES 2008 site. The page for the PSP suggests that the handheld's owners can soon place calls to friends and fellow gamers using the device's Wi-Fi access and a special version of Skype's Internet calling software. No feature of the kind has been announced for the PSP in North America and would require additional hardware to supply a microphone, which is likely to stem from Sony's Go!Cam voice and webcam hybrid.

Details of when the function will be available are unknown but should be made public on the first day of CES, which begins on Monday. Sony Europe had previously confirmed that the Go!Cam would allow VoIP calls and that both the device and the software should be available in early 2008. Skype itself is free for calls between Skype members but charges per minute for calls to or from real-world phone numbers. [via PMPToday]

    PSP VAIO.

    They should just integrate it all in a PSP / Walkman-Radio-Stereo / Game Console / Camera & Video Recording / TV & Projector / Cell phone / Entertainment portable low cost VAIO with free music, movies and show downloads. Like Sony has all those areas covered, how the h*** would they make money? Ask Google!
