PSP Skype Headset in US

Resellers in the US today began stocking the PSP Headset Kit for Skype, the earpiece and remote combo designed to take advantage of the VoIP service on the handheld console. Sony's American release follows just days after the Japanese launch and mirrors its functionality, with both street-style earphones, an adjustable boom mic, and a remote control for managing volume without reaching for the PSP itself.

The headset requires version 3.9 PSP firmware and up and also doubles as a communicator for games that support voice chat as well as a command system for games with voice recognition. Availability is mixed for the Skype add-on, which is typically selling for $30 and is available from Amazon as well as a handful of other online resellers. Retail launches are expected soon.
