    okay
    i don't own either the psp or any 3rd party camera
    my question is
    i use skype like a motherbitch and well i hear you can use a camera with skype

    just every youtube video i have seen has been shit... some person doing a test call and such
    but the camera is never in action
    my question is
    can you use the psp and for doing video calls?
    like you would on the pc?
    i have no flippin clue

    i just don't want to buy both and have a cam lying around just to take a picture of my man junk
    i already have a decent real camera for that

    any help would be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    no you cant because the psp doesnt have a camera but you can use normal skype on the psp 3000 because it has a built in microphone

    The PSP does have a 3rd party camera, the Go Cam.

    Also, you can use Skype on a 2000, as you can buy a seperate microphone for the PSP, and you can chat normally.
    More on topic:

    Yes you can! http://threespeech.com/blog/?p=920

    You will need:


    - PSP Slim & Lite
    - Go!Cam & Headphones
    - Memory Stick
    - Wi-fi Connection

    i guess another question would be
    if it does work with skype and such
    what about if i was to mod the psp? since i'm a total noob when it comes to the psp (pig ignorance)
    would it still work with it
    or does it have to the one of the newer versions of the firmware
    i know to get a psp 2000
    but thats pretty much all i know
    i would use it as a skype/media player/street fighter machine
    any help again would be greatly appreciated

    thanks again [​IMG]
