Sony Skype budle for PSP

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan (SCEJ) announced a PSP Headset with Remote Control on Friday. The kit is meant to be used with the PSP's Skype functionality, which was enabled late in January with firmware update 3.90. To use the devices to make VoIP calles using Skype on the PSP, the gaming system's firmware must be upgraded to version 3.93, according to SCEJ.

Both the remote control and headset come in black only and are compatible with the current PSP-2000 version of the portable gaming system. The headset also doubles as an interface with the PSP's Talkman and P-Kara software titles.

While SCEJ released official prices and release date for Japan of 3,800 yen (about $36) and June 19, respectively, no such information was revealed for the North American market., however, lists the PSP Headset Kit for Skype at $30 with availability starting May 7. Before this bundle, PSP Skype users had the option of purchasing the remote control and headset separately, for a total of $50. [via GamingBits]
