European PSP gets loaded with new features in '08

Early next year Sony plans on adding a video download service to the Playstation Portable handheld device. The service will come via a joint venture with British Sky Broadcasting and will only be available to the 2.3m PSP users in the UK and Ireland early next year. In addition, Sony has hooked up with Britian’s leading fixed-line carrier, BT Group, to enable PSP users to make video and voice calls, and send instant messages. Sony also plans to release an external device for the Playstation 3 that will allow it to act as a high-definition digital TV tuner and recorder with the ability to transfer recorded content to the PSP for viewing. According to the Financial Times article, it appears that these added features may not be available to North American consumers until after a run in Europe early next year. Where’s the love Sony?
