Skype now available for PS Vita

Skype has launched their anticipated Video and Voice app for the handheld console today.


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.

God of War - Ascension arriving on PlayStation Vita ?

God of War fans might have one more reason to pick up the PlayStation Vita in the future. According to a report from IGN recently, they claim that Sony might be bringing God of War to a non-Sony platform in addition to the PlayStation Vita. In the article God of War developers, Ready at Dawn, were quoted as saying, “I think with the way the industry’s playing that dysfunctional passive aggressive type of mentality, we as a company and we as an industry constantly have to look at all opportunities. It doesn’t mean we’ll go there, but there’s certainly reason to talk about it.”
With job postings and other rumors floating around, it has been no secret that there has been a God of War game in development. Today, the next game in the series has finally been confirmed as God of War: Ascension.
Chances are it’ll be arriving on the Vita before any other platform but at the rate iOS devices are being adopted – it would be silly to rule it out. It would be an interesting twist to play as Kratos without the Blades of Chaos or Godly powers.What do you think? Would you like God of War on your PS vita?
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

PlayStation Vita 1.66 firmware update rolling out now, minor UI tweaks in tow

Shortly after unleashing (and quickly pulling back) the PS Vita's v1.65 firmware update, Sony's rapidly rolling out a followup release. Version 1.66 brings with it a few UI tweaks, including tidbits such as the addition of a progress bar during app installs, notification alerts now only popping up for three seconds, plus the option to tap Retry / Cancel when running into troubles during location search.
