According to the NY Post, Sony plans to add a cellphone to the next generation of PSP units. Video chat and messaging will also be included. This is great news for gamers and could definitely extend the viability of the PSP. Currently, the Nintendo DS is obviously the best in portable gaming, but this could breathe some new life into the Sony PSP. There’s no telling how long it will take Sony to pull this project off, but they better do it soon. This move will go down in history as an act of desperation or an act of genius.

June 10, 2007 — Embattled Sony is making a move to reverse extremely disappointing sales of its PSP game system. The electronics giant has filed for a patent to add a cellphone to the next generation of PSPs. It also inked a deal with U.K. carrier BT Mobile to bring advanced multimedia, such as video chat and messaging, to the PSP. Both moves to upgrade the underperformimg PSP come as rival Apple readies to drop its much-anticipated iPhone June 29.
