The UK may have gotten gypped with the PS3's backward compatibility, but the tables are turning, as Europe will be the first to get added PSP functionality to turn the handheld into a mobile phone, reports IGN.

It's a new function that gamers have been hoping for since the console's global launch in 2005. Thanks to BT, it's actually becoming a reality. A special BT Softphone program will launch for the PSP that will enable PSP-to-PSP communications at first, and will then be expanded for users to place calls to any number in the world.I've had a PSP since day one, and so far I've been very disappointed in the online services it offers. This is just the kind of thing that could pump enthusiasm back into the device, which has been trailing the Nintendo DS in its two years on the market.

IGN quoted SCEE president David Reeves as saying, "It is very exciting for us to be partnering with BT on such a unique project. The opportunity to combine our market leading expertise with BT's knowledge in communications opens up many possibilities and we look forward to bringing many exciting communication functions to PSP fans."
