Skype on PlayStation? There's an App
The PlayStation Vita is extending its reach into video and voice calling with the release of a Skype app for the mobile gaming device.
The free app is expected to be available through the PlayStation store Tuesday in North America and Wednesday in Europe and Asia. It will work for both the Vita's 3G and Wi-Fi only models. The Skype app will use the Vita's front and rear cameras for video calling.
The app will also run in "background mode," so users can pause a game, and then take a call.
