Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has graced Europe with its Skype alternative, Go!Messenger. Go!Messenger is alternative service to the recently released Skype client for the PSP. The service also offers free videos, VOIP, video calling (using Go!Cam ) and instant messaging features. The Go!Messenger service is exclusive to Europe so check it out if you happen to live in the region.
PSP owners in the UK can use Go!Messenger through 2,500 BT Openzone hotspots so you can now keep in touch when you are on the go. To download the service, simply click on the Go!Messenger icon from the [Network] menu on the PSP XMB. In order to use Go!Messenger, your PSP must be running Firmware version 3.90 and you must be connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot with Internet access.
The Go!Messenger service was developed in partnership with BT, one of the world’s leading telecoms providers and SCEE’s Wireless communications partner across all territories. For more details on the service, visit http://gomessenger.bt.com/.
