After being passed over due to failed certification tests
, Skype on PSP will finally land in the hands of Japanese gamers on March 18, PSP Fanboy reports
. The Japanese version of the Slim-PSP-only
service launches a month later than the North American version
, defying our normal expectations of how these things go.
The day after the firmware launch, a new Skype-optimized USB microphone atttachment for the PSP will be released for 2,500 yen (or two for 4,000). Expect a sudden surge in Japanese gamers yelling at their PSPs shortly thereafter.
