On the eve of its January 24 debut in Japan, Sony's PSP Skype service and microphones have been delayed. According to the press release
, "it was found that the microphone did not meet the Skype specifications in part to obtain certification." Doesn't that seem like a problem that should have been dealt with before launch week, possibly before a release date was even announced?
No new date has been given for either the microphone or Skype service. Our sister site Engadget had a chance to check out
the new service earlier this month at CES 2008.
