Slim PSP owners get Skype this month


In late January, Sony will release a system update that puts a Skype icon in the Network category of the PSP home menu. Calling Skype users and people around the world via the PSP sounds neat, but you need an optional microphone accessory to make use of the feature. Also the update is restricted to slim PSPs (PSP-2000). If you're stuck with a PSP Phat you will not be able to use Skype until a wizard with incorporates it into future custom firmware.
