You will be able to make phone calls with the PS Vita

The PlayStation Vita is a very powerful device, the only option for people missing is that for calling and sending text messages. For this first feature Sony seems to have been a solution. (PS Vita)

Nice but I wonder what Microsoft is going to do to skype. Skype is great but it doesn't make any money to become profitable. I hope it stay free

might add adverts I guess (hope)
Kingsora  +   1621d ago
I am quite sure they already make a lot of money with Skype. Making it a service to pay would be kind of stupid. Then people will just start using other options to chat and make video calls
extermin8or  +   1621d ago
hmmm and with the front camera might be able to use the video chat features :D

skype isnt making a phone call.

Its seeing if someone else is on the same program and talking.

You cant take messages or anything

If anything its like talking to someone through psn

@ below

exactly. Which makes this less than ideal. if you already own a phone. Its basically a non feature.

You can also call to normal numbers, you have to pay then though.

And if you don't own a phone (like myself) it makes it a huge feature.

You don't own a phone? The heck?

cell phone

Gotta love the people on this site. Flat out 11 disagrees, and only 2 responses.

As far as skype is though, like the person said above, you can make calls, but you have to pay for each one. At the same time though, the op is right in the sense that the free aspect behind it, is basically voice chat.
Deadman_Senji  +   1621d ago
Because your information is wrong. You can call anybody with skype. I've done it before, landline and mobile phone alike.
radphil  +   1621d ago
I just said you can make calls with the thing.. >_>

It's the OP that was ill-informed, but also correct at the same time. He only knew 1/2 the information.

What I was getting at, was the fact that only 2 people responded to correct, yet 12 took the time to just say "I disagree" and move on, not saying WHY.

hater much i guess you didn't know you can get unlimited cell phone and landline calls through skype along with texting,voice mail etc and it's super cheap check the website.

All I can think of at the moment is holding up the NGage like a taco-phone, but if it's video or headset chat, that's pretty cool. Considering it's all Skype-ified, that's probably more of the idea. Which is awesome. And weird, since MS owns Skype, as Superman pointed out above.

But hey, if MS brings Skype to Sony, and Sony sells Blu-Ray to MS next generation, we'll have ourselves a strategic yet fractured partnership! Weird!

Nothing weird about it MS and Sony already do a lot together on the PC side of things MS advertise windows in sony laptops.

Its just business just because there competitors dose not mean there arch enemies
Colmshan1990  +   1621d ago
You wouldn't have to hold it up.
I can talk through the headphones attached to my PSP, so I;d expect something similar in this case too.
CaptCalvin  +   1621d ago
you wouldn't have to hold it up to ur face or anything. just talk as if ur video chatting on a computer.
NiKK_419  +   1620d ago
That's what a Bluetooth headset is for
e-p-ayeaH  +   1621d ago
The PSP already as Skype...
The Matrix  +   1621d ago
No thanks I have a phone for that.
lazertroy  +   1621d ago
Video Chat with the camera.
ChrisGTR1  +   1621d ago
lol, i can already imagine how akward someones going to look using that as a phone. ngage here we go again.
plmkoh  +   1621d ago
You don't exactly see people lift their Ipads to their faces, now do you.

Same applies here.

Sold.. Skype is only free for ipv or whatever you want to call it!.. Maybe this is why it keeps falling over since MS bought it.. Its their ploy to make people not use it! #ConspiriciesRUs

Edit: Excuse my spelling.. Its Friday and as is obligatory.. I be pissed!

I am thinking MS will sell access to Skype to devices like a license. Sony would need to license the tech and I am guessing now that its MS owned that wont be cheap for anyone not just Sony.
jocomat9  +   1621d ago
IF thats true then im sold. Wow sony make it happen then BALLS to you!
fullmetal297  +   1621d ago
Because putting a giant device along side your face with the analog sticks sticking out like tits makes you look like badass in front of the ladies.

you can't afford a blutooth headset or what
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1621d ago
Skype's phone calling service is only 60 bucks a year. This will replace my cell for sure.
CaptCalvin  +   1621d ago
lol except the phones can't call you
Just_The_Truth  +   1621d ago
if you get a plan you get a number which anyone can call like a cell phone
XabiDaChosenOne  +   1621d ago
Uhm.. Sony doesn't need Skype. Google voice anyone?
Merivigian  +   1620d ago
But that's why I have a cell phone..
hadouken007  +   1620d ago
If it's like my galaxy s Droid, I'm sold.
StarWolf  +   1618d ago
i think everyone in the whole planet should use Skype. why the hell do we have to pay to talk to people. if everyone agreed to use this program, we'd run these phone companies out of business or to drop their price by 80% . but noooo
