It appears the rather large hint dropped on Sony's blog last week is true! Skype is coming to the PSP, and there's not long to wait.

Sony execs have confirmed that an update is on the way this month that'll add the VOIP client to PSP's abilities.

No watered-down version, it'll allow free Skype-to-Skype calls. Account holders will also be able to make SkypeOut calls to landlines and mobiles at cut-price rates.

We're promised contacts lists and account access will be on board – all accessible via a new Skype icon in the 'Network' category on the PSP's home menu.

Look out for the system update in a couple of weeks. And don't forget to bag yourself a mic-ed up headset in the meantime.
