Skype is happy to announce that the Skype Video and Voice calling app for PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) is now available to download for free from the “Media & Apps” category of the PlayStation Store. The Skype 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 for PS Vita also features a “background mode,” which allows you to run Skype while you are playing a game or using other apps, so you never miss a call (Certain games will shut off network connectivity during use, which will stop incoming Skype calls. Voice and video calls will require a Wi-Fi connection in some countries.)
Plus, with a little Skype credit you can make low-cost calls to landlines and mobile directly from your PS Vita.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=eNgpSaNuWwQ&w=600]
