Sony has signed a four year contract with BT to offer video calls, voice calls and messaging to the PSP, GamesIndustry.biz is reporting.
Using VoIP technology, PSP users will be able to communicate over the internet, with plans for PC, mobile phone and fixed line integration scheduled for the future.
"The PSP is an excellent device for both gaming and communications because of its high quality screen and audio capabilities," offered Steve Andrews, chief of mobility and convergence for BT.
"With over 8 million PSPs shipped across Europe, we are very excited by the opportunity to give customers a whole new communications experience, connecting and seeing friends across the world through BT's technology."
The service will roll-out in the UK, with other European regions to follow.
"The opportunity to combine our market leading expertise with BT's knowledge in communications opens up many possibilities and we look forward to bringing many exciting functions to PSP fans," commented David Reeves, president of SCEE.
