PSP v3.9 update launches, brings Skype

Sony PSP 3.9 with Skype

As promised, Sony today issued its version 3.9 System Update for the slim PSP. The software primarily adds Skype support for the newer handheld consoles and allows users to place and take the same voice-over-Internet calls as Skype's software for computers, including free calls between Skype members and paid calls to or from real-world phone numbers. The update adds an entire Skype section that lets users browse their Skype contact lists as though they were part of the PSP's normal crossbar interface.

In addition to one of the newer PSPs, using Skype currently requires an official PSP headset with an in-line remote. The update should be available immediately, though Sony has not said whether it will be possible to add Skype to first-generation PSPs or whether it can be used with either third-party devices or Sony's Go!Cam add-on.
