Sony announces Skype for Playstation Vita

Vita

Earlier today Sony announced Skype will be available on the Playstation Vita and Vita owners couldn’t be more excited.

According to Monique Brenes, the Senior Director at Skype, the Vita app includes free Skype-to-Skype voice calling, as well as high-quality video calling that utilizes PS Vita’s front and rear cameras. The Skype app on PS Vita runs in “background mode” while you’re gaming or using other applications* — meaning you have the capability to “pause” a game, conduct a call and then return to your previous activity — so you never miss a call. Plus, with a little Skype credit you can make low-cost calls to landlines and mobile directly from your PS Vita.

To download Skype, be sure to keep your eyes on the Playstation Store as the app will be ready to download and should appear sometime today.
