Sony confirms Skype for PSP Vita

Sony confirms Skype for PSP Vita

Sony confirmed that both Skype, which is owned by Microsoft, and FourSquare would feature on the PSP Vita.

Sony has confirmed that the PSP Vita will include support for Skype, even though Microsoft took over the digital communications company back in June.

The confirmation came at Sony's press conference at GamesCom 2011 in Cologne.

Skype was first announced for Sony's new handheld, the PSP Vita back in June, but little had been heard of that aspect of the PSP Vita since Microsoft acquired Skype back in May.

Sony also took the time to announce that the PSP Vita would include support for FourSquare, the popular location-tagging social media software.

Don't really care about Skype, but look forward to the Vita.

Is this different or the same as the PSP E1000?

The PSP E1000 is basically a slightly re-designed, WiFi-less version of the current PSP; the Vita is the next-gen, quad core, touchscreen console that won't be out till next year.

My psp 3000 works really well with skype as long as my wifi connection is at 40% or better, hell, sometimes I think the quality of the voice chat is better than my 3G blackberry. Don't see how putting it on the new Vita is a bad thing.

Not that I really care... but how do you use Skype on a device without wi-fi?

This isn't the same as the device mentioned in yesterday's article. The PSP Vita comes with Wi-Fi standard, 3G as an option.
