A "unique" product from Thrustmaster has surfaced. Dubbed the WiFi USB Key for PSP FunAccess (whew!), this dongle device provides Internet connectiviy to your PSP via your connected laptop or desktop computer when no wireless router is readily available.

"Sony®'s portable console is a fantastic gaming machine which can be connected to the Web via its WiFi system. Thrustmaster has created this new accessory to enable all gamers who don't have a WiFi system at home to get the most from their console's online capabilities, from anywhere at home and wire-free."

Is this device necessary? Is a "custom" PSP version really needed? Will any fanboys be getting one?
