Skype dials onto PlayStation Vita

Call of the gamer

Security for virtualized datacentres

Skype for the PlayStation Vita went live today, with owners of the Sony-made handheld games console now able to make video calls using the Microsoft-owned chat platform.

Skype for PlayStation Vita

Owners of Sony's handheld games console can download Skype for PlayStation Vita free from today. ®
