TGS 09: New PSP Room service announced

It looks like a new PSP service, PlayStation Room, will be similar to Home for the PlayStation 3. At the Tokyo Game Show today, Sony announced that the PSP service will allow users to create 3D avatars, room spaces, blogs, albums, and chat support.

This new service will be added via an upcoming PSP firmware update sometime this winter. You will be able to launch the service directly from the PlayStation Network on the XMB.

While this isn’t exactly PlayStation Home, this new Room service seems to have potential. If you own a PSP, does this seem like a service you’d like to try?
