Skype Coming To Vita 'This Month'

Hopefully.

Oh dear, this is one of those bits of news where everything is in the title and you don’t really need to read this bit. However as you are reading I now have to be entertaining and informative. Curse you and your unending requirement for gaming news!

A clever spark posted a question on the EU PlayStation blog asking when Skype was arriving on PS Vita. Here is a lovely screen capture to fill up some space.

So there you go, Skype hopefully arriving on PS Vita by the end of of April, but you knew that already.

However, as you have waded through this waffle, here is a fact which hopefully you did not know: The word Arctic comes from the Greek word for bear (Ursa Major – “The Bear” is a northern constellation), and Antarctic comes from the Greek “anti”, meaning the opposite.

      Remote Play is a feature that has to be enabled by the developers of the games. I don’t think Sony has any say in it.

    I assumed since MS bought Skype, we wouldn’t be seeing Skype on Vita or any other future Sony consoles. This is good news then.
    Will all future facts be ‘bear’ related TC? ;)

    Good news. Tho I’ve really stopped using Skype in the last year. Maybe having a 3G Vita might use it again to message people.

    I was impressed with nemesis-wonderbra’s (I never remember Phill’s actual username) efforts on Skype with the PSPGo he recently won. Sounded fine to me. Hoping that the Vita is better again (in microphone quality).
