This would be great addition for people who want to play games and chat with others who don’t own one.

That ship sailed about two years ago when Microsoft bought Skype. You know how Microsoft feels about sharing. Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.

Skype is owned by Microsoft, not happening bro.

Skype is on PS Vita, so please push it to PS4 too! Would love to use my PS Camera to videochat with friends..

That ship hasn’t necessarily sailed. Microsoft owns Skype and yet they make an iOS app.

Yeah the fact that microsoft owns it doesn’t mean they flat out wont work with sony, skype’s part of microsoft is a completely different division and at the end of the day, if they refuse sony can offer a little money?

Skype is still a business, they even said they’re interested in bringing Skype to the PS4 last year.

Probably low on Microsoft’s ToDo list, but would be nice.

Unfortunately Skype is owned by Microsoft so it is up to them if they want to let the competition use it.

This would be a fantastic addition. Some people will say, “Well Microsoft won’t put Skype on PS4, because they own the Xbox One.” I don’t think that’s very true. They have Skype on the Vita, which is owned by Sony.

The only reason why it is on vita is because Microsoft bought Skype like almost a week after it launched on vita

Microsoft isn’t allowed to restrict which platforms get Skype, part of the deal they made when they bought Skype. It’s irrelevant that MS owns it. Skype is already on two PS Platforms

Sony just needs to bring their own app to PS4. Video chat is something that is sorely missing in the transition from PS3 to PS4.

We will never have skype sadly…

We might never have skype but there is Viber which could work just as well!!!!!!
