    Question Do you think Skype will make it to PS4?

    Well what do you think?
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!

    I doubt it. I wouldn't mind though, I don't use Skype.

    Well it's on every possible platform and I like it on Vita, especially since the last update brought the voice chat while playing function. I realy hope it makes it onto the PS4.
    I missed it on PS3 and could never understand why the PSP had it.

    Doubtful. I mean it's in their best interests to have Skype on as many platforms as possible, which they do. But this is an isolated case and MS are pushing Skype as a killer app on Xbone

    Nope, reason it's on Vita and PSP is because MS aren't in the handheld competition.

    I used skype all about a dozen times and sound quality is garbage.
    Even teamspeak 2 sounds better.

    No. because Sony might make their own version

    Skype on PS4? Probably not. MS won't let that happen. Sony has the ps eye for it. Probably not as good but it will do the job.

    If Microsoft is nice, maybe... and lets Sony have a non-crippled version.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    that made no sense lol. what does ps eye have to do with skype?

    but yea, i don't see it happening 1) owned by MS and in direct competition. 2) ps4 has a way to cross-game-chat through its own program and we've always been able to video chat (better than skype)...no need. thus why it's not on PS3.

    If we dont get Skype Viber will do. I never used it but they offer free vido/audio calls and messaging.

    Even if this does happen it would be sort of difficult and take long periods of time to type text especially if you have to press certain letters one at a time similar to the PS3 text configuration, but therefore they would probably bring out a keyboard like last time for the PS4

    Then again the main point of skype is to vid call

    I really want Skype on PS4.
    I used to use MSN messenger to message all my friends, and Skype for when I want to to talk to them.
    Now that Messenger is gone, I have to use Skype for both.
    I use my iPod touch/PS Vita/Laptop as a Skype companion to my PS3, but I would prefer if I did not have to.
    The free cross game chat will definitely help me out when it comes to communicating with people that I play with. Being able to use Skype would definitely be nice to have though.

    I don't see why not, even if MS owns them, they only benefit from providing a service to the competition, gets them more users and such.

    Id rather have Google Hangouts, Google +.
    Don't use Skype anymore. Quality has gone to s*** as of late.
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    oh ok i didn't think about that, so you can use it to chat with other skype users, that's neat. I wonder if Sony could allow a chat program like that on the PS4 so you could essentially chat with others outside the console.

    Was coming in to say the same thing. $#@! skype. Get all your moms on hangouts. Free 10 way video calling. I still don't understand how skype can charge for that.
    The hangouts app is better than skype too, it's more like whats app with video calling built in.
    Skype is a battery rapist on mobile too, and a resource hog on the desktop.

    My sentiments exactly.
    Hell, why settle for just cross-game voice chat when Hangouts can give us up to 10 player (or maybe more if they want to work something with google) cross-game video chat between PS3, desktop and mobile?
