Rumor: Vita Will Keep Skype Feature
The PlayStation Vita is a remarkable little unit with a ton of potential.
It enjoyed a full unveiling at E3 last week and gamers, journalists, and analysts came away impressed. But there may have been one feature that didn't get announced:
Skype functionality. Brazilian site GameGeneration has posted up an intriguing pic from Sony's Key Account Meeting in Sao Paulo. There are quite a few logos associated with Vita - PSN, Wi-Fi, and DLNA - but there's one we didn't expect, and it's the Skype logo. Currently the PSP has Skype but Microsoft recently purchased the service, so there was some question as to whether or not the "PSP2" would have access. But remember, when MS got Skype, they said they would continue to support versions that weren't on MS platforms, so this isn't out of the realm of possibility.
Then again, it could just be a mistake. It's a big mistake - usually don't see those at events where the manufacturer presents its own product - but we suppose it's possible.
