Sony has now officially announced what we all knew was coming
- Skype is coming to the PSP Slim. From what we can tell from the feature list on the press release, this is no "Skype Lite". All of Skype's PC/Mac features will soon be available for the PSP Slim. The service allows for free calls to PCs and other PSPs running skype but will also feature full support for SkypeIn and SkypeOut, essentially turning your PSP into a (rather bulky) cellphone - as long as you have Wifi access.
Skype for the PSP will be enabled via a firmware update at the end of the month, when a Skype icon will suddenly appear on your XMB. Don't have a Skype account? No worries, you can set one up straight from your PSP. Check out the full features, after the break.
