The Inquirer reports the Sony PSP3 will have an operating system running in the background, but this will cost a lot of system resources:
The big idea is that players can switch between playing to other functions. This would include text and video chat.

However, this costs a bomb in terms of resources taking 64Mb of the 256Mb available XDR memory and 32Mb of the 256Mb of available GDDR3 memory.
