Report – Vita to have Skype functionality

It looks as though Skype will be made available on Vita when it releases, just as with the PSP, according to a demonstration of the handheld in Brazil.

Much like the PSP, it will offer Skype functionality despite Microsoft purchasing the service last month.

Microsoft said service contracts with Skype prior to the purchase will be upheld, and that the company will continue to offer the service on non-Microsoft products.

Skype has over 170 million users, and 600,000 new customers register for the product each day.
