Sony have announced a number of new PlayStation Portable peripherals and services today, with a camera and GPS receiver both planned for launch by the end of this year.

The PSP Camera (PSP-300) will make use of Eye Toy motion tracking technology, and also allow for a video chat function, presumably meaning video calling with audio will be offered in a future PSP firmware upgrade.

GPS navigation functionality is also going to be added to Sony's handheld device with a GPS Receiver (PSP-290) and has repeatedly been touted as an expected feature of the PSP since mid-2003.

A number of old PlayStation games will also be offered for download via a new PlayStation Spot, which will provide wireless access to games, music and movies - with the Spot's currently being launched in Japan at coffee shops and games retailers.
