    OK I have 3.90 M33 installed, and I changed to Europe region.. Then on XMB went to Network > GO!Messenger, and it said the software was not installed, and it took me to the website and it said "coming soon"... So I guess the software isn't out yet, but it's supposedly working since it's on the XMB...Anyone else get it working?

    Its still not a Skype replacement. I have a lot of people on Skype who I cant reach otherwise. It's Sony's stupid idea to try and "compensate" for us Phat users

    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.

    I'm lucky enuff to have a slim and a fat so it's not an issue for me but i think this is the best you are going to get as a Skype alternative for fat only users ( besides Furikup ) unless someone can make a Skype homebrew that uses less RAM

    The icon is just a placeholder. It will really be bought into effect on 4.00

    My question is.. If Go messenger has the same functionality of Skype (audio/video chat), why can't they get just get Skype working?

    I Don't think Skype on the PSP Supports Video ( Yet ) Maybe in the future

    PSP Skype does support talking to people on PC ... Go Messenger probably will not

    If you want to talk to your friend who already has a PSP and the mic and cam then Go Messenger does look the better option
    but if you want to talk to people on PC from your PSP then Skype is awesome
