Can you use Skype on PS3 or do you need to install Linux??


Active Member
As the title says, I am interested in using my PS3 and headset to make calls over the internet using any VOIP software (e.g. Skype). Not sure if this can be done though, or if I would need to install Linux OS first.

Would appreciate any suggestions or comments if anyone is already doing this?



there is rumours that the PSP function is about to arise, so PS3 should follow

when i say rumour, VOIP coding was found in a PSP update, but it hasn't been used yet.

When I installed linux I was unable to run skype because there was no PPC linux version available, maybe im just an idiot??

There are some confusions on how to run Skype on the PSP. Many fans are unfamiliar that the PSP headset will work with Skype (but make sure you have the PSP remote control as well!). See how the program works on the handheld in this comprehensive video from PSP's main marketing man at SCEA, John Koller.
