Skype on PSP

You may have already heard that Skype is coming to the PSP in late January in Japan. You can grab the pack including a USB microphone peripheral for about 40 bucks (25 for just the mic). The first screens of Skype in the PSP XMB are provided by Famitsu.

I'm a little bummed because the Skype service will be available only to PSP slim owners. So those of us with old school PSPs are out of luck. But for those who don't fit with us unforunates, the service will feature free voice calls between Skype users and several account management options. With the inception of Skype, it would be nice if PSP's wi-fi capabilities were enhanced, but since I'm currently not in that boat, I'll leave that discussion for someone else.
