PS Vita gets Skype with background support

PlayStation Vita owners got a major feature update Tuesday with the imminent release of Skype for PS Vita. The app lets the Sony console participate in both voice and video calls using either the front or back cameras. The app not only works both on 3G and Wi-Fi but truly runs in the background, making sure that gamers will catch an incoming call.

As with regular Skype apps, it supports Skype Out calls to regular phone numbers with a fee, as well as free Skype-to-Skype conversations. The built-in microphone will work for conversations, but users can pair it up with a headset if necessary.

The app itself should be free apart from Skype Out access. PS Vita owners should have the option to download the app from the PlayStation Store later into Tuesday.
