Really trying to market the PS Vita as the only mobile gaming device you’ll ever need, Sony has announced that its beloved system is getting Skype support today! Here are some details from the Official Playstation Blog:

The Skype app includes free Skype-to-Skype voice calling, as well as high-quality video calling that utilizes PS Vita’s front and rear cameras. The Skype app on PS Vita runs in “background mode” while you’re gaming or using other applications* — meaning you have the capability to “pause” a game, conduct a call and then return to your previous activity — so you never miss a call. Plus, with a little Skype credit you can make low-cost calls to landlines and mobile directly from your PS Vita.

Sounds good but to be honest, I’m not sure I’m going to be on a bus or something whipping the Vita out to talk to people. What about you? Excited for the app?
