Skype?

I'm a little surprised to see that my PS Vita doesn't have Skype.

 

Skype is a pretty big part of why I got the Vita, so I'm a little worried. Anyone know what happened to it?

 

It's definitely listed as a Vita app on the US site: http://us.playstation.com/psvita/apps/.

It seems more and more manufacturers seem to think this is alright these days.  Just because we expect them to be underhanded and underdeliver on their promises, certainly doesn't mean we have to be quiet about it and consider it acceptable.


To right.

 

I would rather have my Vita handled gaming device play my Ps1 games.

 

 

He is complaing of a expensive PSP emulator!

No symapathy should have done research before spending £215 to know it was not out at launch.

And why pay £215 when you can get SKYPE on a PC with no extra cost?

I guess lack of research


 

As far as asking someone to do their research. I suggest you look at Sony's Playstation Vita Applications page:

 

http://us.playstation.com/psvita/apps/

 

Correct me if I am wrong, but Skype is listed on the page, and there is no subnote stating "coming soon".

 

I don't know what you expect? I don't make it a habit of scouring the internet for each and every feature on a unit to see if the manufacturer is lying about something. Plus, for early adopters, there was no warning that Skype did not exist, again, I direct you to the above page.

I don't follow the US site.

 

I follow the UK site

http://uk.playstation.com/psvitasystem/#select-tab-features

 

Skype had said it would no on a launch and so did SCEE

 

Though Skype is now listed on the Europe site it is still not listed on the skype site.

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

Hello Everybody!!

 

For those waiting impatiently … IT’S THERE!!!

 

Visit the Skype website and you’ll find the PS Vita on the list of machines supported.

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/get-skype/on-your-ps-vita/

 

I also read that it should be downloadable on the PSN today (25/04/2012)! Haven’t checked it yet.

 

 

Text on the Skype website:

 

Making calls and playing games just got easier

Make voice and video calls over 3G and WiFi2 from your PS Vita and keep in touch with anyone, anywhere in the world. Whether you’re playing a game or browsing the web, Skype is always on, so friends and family can always stay in contact.

Simply download Skype for free from the PlayStation®Store on your PS Vita, and get talking in minutes.

 

 

 

Talk face-to-face over video

Talk face-to-face with people on Skype with the PS Vita’s front camera or show them what's around you with the rear camera – it’s as if they’re right there with you.

EU store updates usually between 3-6pm UK time (UTC+1). Most weeks, around 4pm.

Nice one. What an odd time to update. Overnight would seem a better choice......as long as it goes on, i don't mind.

I think it's so they can oversee the upload during office hours.

 

Why they don't just upload all the content with a specific forward-dated start date/time is anybody's guess... Presumably some technical limitation.

Look at it this way. If they delay it, it should have less bugs/problems than releasing it from start :D
