Sony has unveiled a new online community service for PSP called Room, which will be free and available to all Japanese PSP and PSPgo owners before the end of the year.

Like PlayStation Home, Room allows 3D avatars to be created and room spaces decorated. Friends can then pop over to see what you've done, relaying their thoughts in real-time. "It's rubbish, start again."

Blogs can also be posted, albums compiled and groups of people ushered into circles to share topics in and chat.

Sony Japan will send closed beta invites out to select people over the coming months.

Sony Europe, on the other hand, had no further information to share.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
