    Skype app launches on PlayStation Vita tomorrow

    Chatty video and voice app Skype will be available to download on PlayStation Vita from tomorrow.

    Natter-loving Vita owners will be able to nab the software for free from the PlayStation Store.

    Skype on Vita can run in the background while you play games and will alert you if you get a call. Answering the call then switches applications, pausing your current activity.

    You can also choose to chatter using either of the Vita's cameras: front or rear.

    Sony warns that Skype can't run while playing games that disable your network connection during play, and adds that calls may require a Wi-Fi connection in some countries.

    Yeah cause its much easier and accessible because i can talk (make a video call) on the go whereas the vita isn't as portable as my phone.
    Oh and i wouldn't want to do anything on it except play games (i guess that's me).

    lol hey now. Anything that can be added to the Vita is a good thing. The games in May and June are fantastic for the Vita. Why limit what the Vita is capable of?

    I have an iPhone I used for Skype which is only 3.5" screen. Now I can Skype with a 5" screen

    And I Skype often with my parents who live in Florida. So I will certainly benefit from this.

    who cares man. If you don't wanna use it then don't download it? Skype coming on the Vita doesn't take away from games being developed/coming out for Vita...

    On the other side of the fence; if Sony didn't add apps and other services to the Vita, there would be a $#@!storm

    AND it's 3G calls anyway. With an unlimited plan you can get free calls anywhere! Of course, not in the US since I think it's capped, right? All we need now is Whats App *beg, beg, beg*.
