The PlayStation Vita will now give gamers a chance to video chat or voice call friends and family around the world using Skype.
North American gamers can download the app now, but anyone in Europe and Asia will have to wait tomorrow to download their region-specific version of the service.
Using the app, users can make free calls to Skype numbers or purchase credit to make calls to all other numbers via 3G or Wi-Fi depending on what Vita you purchased.
Probably most important for fans, the app can remain in the background while you play a game. You can also use either the front or rear cameras to make video calls.
