    Indeed....never used it....likely never will. I'm too old for that crap and even if I did have it anyone I would want to talk to won't have it. The few people I do talk to I have party chat etc for that....my PS4 is for gaming...my pc is for work...my phone is for talking. Guess I'm just not up with this generation lol.

    Edit: A couple Christmas' ago I tried to use video chat with my parents.....wanted to shoot myself in the head....try teaching a 60 yr old woman to video chat.....yeah...thought so.

    How about a 77 year old woman? I tried to teach my parents to use skype a few years back, but they never quite got the hang of it. I just gave up and started using it to call the home phone (I was in Korea at the time) but Skype is a great thing for me.

    Like Flumbooze said,

    Too bad the only reason they want it on PS4 is because it's hugely tied into the NSA's spying program. You never hear Microsoft wanting to share anything with console competition. NSA is paying them big time for this.

    Sorry for the late response. Anyway, there is no instant messaging on Vita version of Skype. Actually, there is no messaging at all, so the only way to contact someone is to call them. No way to ask them if you can.

    You should see me when I play with friends. PS Vita for cross game voice chat, iPod touch for messaging, and a PS3 for playing.
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!

    And we officially have the two winners for this thread. This is purely to make it easier for the NSA to spy on all the activities people do. Since Microsoft owns Skype and since they have a standing agreement with the NSA with regards to the PRISM program, why not make a deal with your competitor?

    It's a great marketing ploy for Microsoft free promotion of their own product

    hmm, first the "you can plug a PS4 into an XBOX1 thru HDMI", then "Skype on PS4 is good", seems to me Microsoft know they already lost the next generation and want to get close to Sony to save what they can ; maybe a "good behavior show" to address the game developers they're not the bad guys
