PSP firmware gets updated According to Sony’s PlayStation blog, the PSP has seen its firmware updated to version 3.93 today, which comes with 20 new Internet radio players.
The new players are "organized into more specific styles of music so that PSP users can easily find what they are looking for and listen to their favorite genres." Sony has said that more than 50 percent of PSP owners use the music-playback feature of their gaming handhelds.

Internet Radio functionality was originally introduced with firmware version 3.80 and gamers can can enable the Internet Radio player by going to the Network section of the Xross Media Bar. After you install the Internet Radio feature, a new icon will appear enabling music Streaming.

Also coming with the new firmware update is Skype calling, but you will need to purchase the PSP Headset Kit to use it. The set is not available yet.

You can use the current headset. You don't have to purchase another headset. Also, skype was available on the 3.80 update in the U.S. I don't understand why everyone was saying that it was not available in the U.S. when it was.

no you can't. the psp slim has a redesigned port, so it can accept video output, therefore requiring a new headset jack.

also, skype is psp slim exclusive, because the slim has double the ram of the fat psp.

sorry what i should have put is that if you own a slim and have a headset jack to go with the slim, you don't need to buy another one.
