Skype now available on PlayStation Vita; make free phone calls while gaming!

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: JC Marx  

Starting today, PlayStation Vita owners will be able to stay connected with their gaming friends thanks to the addition of Skype to Sony's purdy new handheld.

The Skype Video and Voice calling app for PS Vita will be available later today through the PlayStation Store. Available on both the 3G / Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi-only models, the Skype app for PS Vita includes "free Skype-to-Skype voice calling, as well as high-quality video calling that utilizes PS Vita's front and rear cameras."

According to a PlayStation Blog post from Marique Brenes, Senior Director of the Consumer Electronics Group at Skype, the app "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."

You may have noticed the asterisk next to "while you're gaming or using other applications*". That's because not all games or applications will allow you to pause to take a Skype call. Also, if you were dreaming of using Skype while gaming as an in-game chat tool, the Skype app for PS Vita can't do that... at least presently.

For more info and details, have a look at the following Skype for Sony PlayStation Vita walkthrough video.
