    Following my Skype speculation, a few more details have been provided by GameSpot. We had a few members wondering whether this Skype functionality would come to both handhelds, or just the newer PSP Slim (PSP-2000) model. For reasons not yet known, the Skype software will only be available for download to PSP Slim units. These PSPs will then be able to communicate with any other Skype-enabled PSPs, as well as PCs. A specific microphone will be required for Skype communication (likely the mentioned USB-headset). No mention of video chat at this time.

    GameSpot is also reporting an additional feature, where PSP owners can sign up for a dedicated phone number, for about 2,250 yen (~$20). This deal may be exclusive to Japan. That's all we know at the current time, but expect an update (if not release) within the month. It won't be long before you're "Skyping" with fellow PSP owners!

    Update: This phone number add-on seems to be SkypeIn, which is available for multiple countries. If this is the case, any PSP user could obtain a personal number, not just local to Japan. This phone number can be called from a regular (non-Skype) phone, and answered by your PSP.
    this sucks because i have a PSP PHAT, oh well..

    so the psp is becoming a cell phone, interesting, now all they gotta do is enable us to use free texting..but its kind of dumb to have a dedicated phone number on it ccuz you'll always have to be near an access point for it to work... it used VoIP right?

    This fucking sucks! Its another damn instance of Sony trying to push this damn new shit on us since the beginning of time! We had the skype_plugin.prx in the phat PSP's since the 2.71 firmware! This is so goddamn ridulous its not funny! I use Skype often, and only have a Phat PSP... you dont know how pissed off I am!

    Scribble = Idk, if someone randomly punched in the STOMACH it wouldn't really hurt, especially if it was a girl. I think though, it's because I have lots of stomach muscle and that my stomach would automatically flex.
