GPS and VoIP with your PSP in 2008
Sony is apparently planning to make 2008 the year that the PlayStation becomes a do-it-all device. In January, new software will be available that will make it possible to use the portable PlayStation for both instant messaging and VoIP-style calling. The wireless software (called Go!Messenger) is being put out by Sony in conjunction with the BT Group from Britain. If it only takes you one month before you re bored with the new uses for your PSP, you can upgrade again in February when a GPS positioning device will be available for the toy. That accessory will cost somewhere around $150. And it s not just the PSP that Sony is upgrading; there s also going to be a new accessory for the PlayStation 3 that will make it a digital video recorder.
