Later today the PlayStation Vita will receive Skype support. The latest PlayStation Store update will introduce an app that enables players to communicate via voice and video chat.
The app is available for both the 3G and 3G/Wi-Fi models. The video calls are placed using the Vita's front and rear cameras. You speak through the internal microphone already included with the device. The Vita is also compatible with any Skype-enabled headset.
You won't actually be able to talk on Skype while gaming or using a different app, though. Instead, you'll have to pause your other activity to make calls. It's also worth noting that not all games or apps will be able to pause.
A few images of the app are below. Skype also released an intro video starring professional gamer Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel.
