Use your AOL or AIM screen name to leave comments

Have you noticed? We've upgraded our comments system to make it just a little bit easier for you. There are now three tabs for you to choose from: New Readers, Returning and a fancy new AOL button. Returning readers will be able to use their existing log-in information as usual. However, there's a bonus for those of you that have been too confused by our comments system in the past.

If you use AOL or AIM, you can use your existing screenname and password to leave comments on the Joystiq network. The first time you use your AOL/AIM name, you'll get an e-mail sent to your account with a temporary password. This will let you change your avatar and info on our sites. To access your account, simply click on your avatar on your previous comments. We really hope that this new system will make it easier for you to participate in our community -- especially if you haven't left a comment before!

If you're new to the comments section, why not give it a try? You'll be surprised at how easy it is!

Better keyboard and AIM client released by fans

Qaz from DCEmu (registration required) has released a pretty nice AIM/MSN/Yahoo client for the PSP. It's pretty easy to install and use ... so long as you're willing to struggle with the PSP's pathetic phone-like virtual keyboard. Too bad ZX81's newly released Virtual Keyboard isn't compatible: certainly, conversations would be far more manageable. Regardless, these are two appreciated apps that will certainly help a great number of people, especially because it doesn't involve homebrew. Simply download, extract, and access from the PSP's internet browser.

Get AIM on your PSP

Well, it looks like Stage One has been achieved, if only not via AOL itself. Thanks to a convenient little web-proxy, PSP users with browsing capabilities can now access their AOL Instant Messenger accounts wherever they have an Internet connection. AIMonPSP is free for use and looks to be supported primarily by Google Ads, and while we can't absolutely vouch for your security and safety if you do choose to use their client, we can at least confidently say that this isn't a bogus service. We'd go nuts having to type out our chats via the PSP's text message-esque interface, so we heartily recommend keeping an eye out for a PSP keyboard.

We talked about the potential of Instant Messaging for the PSP before, so we're pretty excited at what this could lead to down the road. And while this isn't exactly the first-party support we were expecting, the popularity of this free service could very well prove to AIM, Yahoo, or Google that Instant Messaging on the PSP could be a very viable option.
