Go!Messenger, the PSP messaging service powered by BT will be shutting down soon. According to SCEE, the service isn’t popular enough to continue. “Although Go!Messenger brought innovative communications features to the PSP community, the service has not developed the base of users that we
were hoping for. We’d like to thank all fans of Go!Messenger and are sorry to have to make this announcement.” The service, while allows gamers in Europe to send videos, voice messages and text message, will be discontinued on March 31st.
It’s bad news for people in Europe who used the service, but at lease you can continue to use the Skype application on 2nd and 3rd generation PSPs. The failure of the service means that other regions will not be getting it. We didn’t really use the service so it’s no big deal to us.
