Sony ditches Go!Messenger on PSP

Publish date:

A lack of users for Sony's Go!Messenger software on PSP has lead to the platform holder confirming that the service will be shut down at the end of next month.

Go!Messenger was an internet telephone, or VOIP, service run in collaboration with telecoms giant BT that allowed PSP owners with access to a wi-fi connection to make free video calls, as well as send messages and recordings to other users.

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,” Edge quotes an SCEE spokesperson as confirming.

We'd like to thank all fans of Go!Messenger and are sorry to have to make this announcement.”

Sony insists that it will soon announce new uses for those who bought a Go!Cam specifically for the BT service shortly.
