Playstation Portable (PSP) owners with broadband connections will be able to make free VoIP calls later this month, it has been announced.

The service will be offered through provider Skype, all of whose 246 million users will be reachable via the service.

A statement from the firm said: "Users will be able to call friends, talk trash to fellow gamers, and catch up with acquaintances via Skype for PSP."

The service will also enable gamers to use Skype's contact list management facility and for an extra charge they can also make SkypeOut calls to landlines and mobiles, as well as take SkypeIn calls.

Further details of the service are set to be confirmed by Sony today at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.

In order to take advantage of the VoIP service PSP owners will require a wireless broadband connection, a Memory Stick duo and a Skype-compatible audio input device.
