    Skype Coming To Vita ‘This Month’

    Oh dear, this is one of those bits of news where everything is in the title and you don’t really need to read this bit. However as you are reading I now have to be entertaining and informative. Curse you and your unending requirement for gaming news!
    A clever spark posted a question on the EU PlayStation blog asking when Skype was arriving on PS Vita. Here is a lovely screen capture to fill up some space.

    So there you go, Skype hopefully arriving on PS Vita by the end of of April, but you knew that already.
    However, as you have waded through this waffle, here is a fact which hopefully you did not know: The word Arctic comes from the Greek word for bear (Ursa Major – “The Bear” is a northern constellation), and Antarctic comes from the Greek “anti”, meaning the opposite.

    Skype on Vita is a welcome addition. However it probably should have been there at launch.

    Can't have everything at launch lol. I'm sure they wanted to see how well it was received before spending the resources on getting it up and running on the vita, then having to support it, etc.

    Now all that's left is Internet Radio and PS1 Classics support (and select PS2 Classics shouldn't be too difficult either).

    This. I can't wait until Sony really take advantage of 3g then I will pick up a uncapped data sim for my Vita. Skype is a seriously cool addition.

    Haha wow! Skype is simply the best voice/webcam chat client available. With Skype on Vita, we wil be able to call/webcam with anyone who is on our Skype's contact list. If it works with 3g I am going to be a VERY happy chappy. However, I am abit concerned about how much battery life this app will suck.

    I would assume so, considering there is a front/rear camera

    It was actually fairly good! I used it a lot back in the day actually. The quality wasn't top notch, but the video was fluid enough to work properly. Can't wait to see how it works with the Vita.
