The article deals with the decision of Sony Computer Entertainment to add a Skype Web phone function to its PlayStation Portable (PSP) later in March 2008 in Japan. Sales of PSP is running behind Nintendo DS. Sony initially announced the delayed introduction of the Skype service for PSP users in Japan, as a microphone it planned to start selling for the service did not meet Skype specifications. The microphone has since passed the Skype requirements. Sony now plans to start selling the microphone on March 19, 2008 in Japan.
