Japan finally getting Skype for the PSP

Japan finally getting Skype for the PSP

When it comes to most games and accessories for the PS3 and PSP, Japan usually gets first dibs, while the rest of the world waits around. However, in the case of Skype support for the PSP,  Japan is still waiting around on it. Don't worry though, they're finally getting it later this month.

Sony adds ‘Matte Bronze’ to your PSP color choices

Sony adds ‘Matte Bronze’ to your PSP color choices

I'm a big fan of having choice when it comes to my gaming needs. Being able to select a color that suits me it always welcome, however, I think that there comes a time when you've just got too many colors. The DS has been released in more colors than you can find in nature, and the PSP is getting to be the same way.

New PSP Cradle coming to Japan in April

New PSP Cradle coming to Japan in April

I love cradles. No, I don't have a thing for babies and the places they sleep, but I hate having to fuss with plugging in a cord to my mobile devices. I'd rather just plop it down into a cradle and be done with it, then when I need it again, I just grab it and go. Naturally if I had a PSP (I know, I really need to pick one up) I'd be excited as hell over this new accessory.

Sony announces new red PSP bundle

The Nintendo DS has come out in more colors and flavors than Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Sure, that's a bit of a stretch, but some days I've really started to wonder. Not to be outdone, Sony has been releasing their PSP in a variety of new colors of late. The newest one is in honor of God of War: Chains of Olympus.

Sony announces wireless Playstation Store for the PSP

We're living in an age where everything is wireless. With 3G broadband access and WiFi hotspots virtually everywhere, there's no reason you should have to plug in a mobile device for any reason other than to recharge it. After Apple released their iPhone, they rolled out their wireless iTunes Store. Now Sony has confirmed that they will be doing something similar for the PSP.

Sony cuts PSP development kit prices in half

Sony cuts PSP development kit prices in half

I'll admit that over the last year or so, my faith in Sony as a gaming company has wavered. Sure, I've loved my PS2, but the insanely high price of the PS3 combined with a lack of a good amount of exclusive titles was making me question their ability to connect with today's gamer. The PSP was also a bit of a disappointment (and who can forget that whole “all i want for xmas is a psp” ordeal). However, they've really seemed to turn things around, and 2008 is already shaping up to be a good year for them. We just saw the new PSP firmware which added Skype compatibility and now they've announced a price cut for the portable console's development tools.

Skype on the PSP is now live

Skype on the PSP is now live

Go get the update now! Firmware 3.90 offers up Skype, well, that’s the major addition from the update, I have no clue what else it does, but after you have Skype on your PSP you probably won’t care either.

The downsides are as follows, first, you have to have a PSP-2000, aka the PSP Slim. The second is that the little remote that came with that model PSP, yeah, you had better still have it, as its apparently necessary (probably where the microphone is).

So the GorillaPod is not new, still cool, but not new, what is new is the accessories they are now packaging with it. There is a suction cup and a couple of Velcro attachments each of which are mountable on the GorillaPod just like a camera.

The Solar Powered Battery for the PSP

The Solar Powered Battery for the PSP

I am always all about any gadget that utilizes solar power, but sometimes just using solar power isn't enough. Occasionally you have to actually think the design through a bit. The PSP can now harness solar power through deal extreme, but not in the brightest way.
