Skype headed to PS Vita

Video chat service Skype will be released for PS Vita tomorrow, Sony has announced.

The app, a free download from the PlayStation Store, supports the Vita's front and rear cameras, and can run the background – so players can receive calls while playing a game, and return to the action once the call is finished.

Skype's Manrique Brenes said: "Our users appreciate being able to access Skype features wherever and whenever they choose. With the launch of Skype for PS Vita, we are taking another step towards our ultimate goal of making Skype available on every platform, all over the world."

Sony has put together the below, faintly embarrassing video featuring pro gamer Fatal1ty running through the app's various features.
