    psp Is Skype coming to the PSP?



    via pspfanboy

    This mumbo-jumbo that appears on your screen happens to be code extracted from a decrypted version of firmware 3.10. MaTiAz appears to have uncovered a reference to a "skype_plugin" within the code. While the functionality is clearly not present in the current revision of PSP's firmware, it appears that Sony's working on something for a future upgrade. Historically, it appears that hints to future functionality is hidden away in the code: references to the PSP camera and GPS were found in earlier decrypted firmware, long before they were officially released.

    A similar Sony product, the Mylo, has implemented Skype functionality in the past. Certainly, being able to have some kind of VoIP service (free, or not) would increase the value of Sony's portable even more. Will you celebrate if Sony releases this in a future firmware revision?

    Lets hope for a Dark ALex release with Skype

    I really hope that it does become implemented, but I won't hold my breath. You'll also remember that the leaked 1.0 update had reference to an email program, word processor, and other goodies that never seemed to reappear in later firmware.

    But here's to hoping!

    I noticed this a few days ago aswell

    My guess it will probably be in a later firmware

    3.20 or (more likely) 3.50 anyone? :thumbup:

    That would be cool. No need for a MYLO then.

    Whatever happened to the Mylo? Did it ever take off? Anyone ever get one?

    I'm actually surprised that no coder has made a homebrew yet for VOIP on the PSP. W/E I guess we will just have to wait and see what other things SONY can legally pack into their firmwares to try and see if people will follow their updates.

    In my head the PSX emulator was the last chance they had at getting people to update, but D_A completely owned them there =P
