Update Skype to support video chat on PSP

Idea 25659 | Posted in , by | July 13, 2010

With the PSP camera finally coming to North America this fall, Skype should be updated to support video chat.

i thought a psp camera has already been out in the states? i saw some guy at a playstation meetup with one on his.

i agree with this by the way, though i think they should also support facetime (upvote)

yes i too want a skype update with vid AND texting..SERIOUSLY Already.

I hope Sony is listening and that the group asking for video chat support on Skype for the PSP is growing! I certainly support and hope for this feature. I would even pay for an app that would do this!

video chat and texting would turn the psp, and psp go into an awesome wifi phone!

i already pay for skype-out calling, if i could at least text i would be happy.

If the PSP’s Skype got Video and Text chat, I would be fully satisfied with it.

Not sure why you would want text chat via the PSP/Go’s interface, but sure (UpVote!). Video Chat would be Amazing.

I’m disappointed that bt has shut down his services, so I hope that skype will support videochat

The iphone and itouch can’t even do this yet! Give the PSP a leg up in the industry and make this move!

Skype video and get PS3 involved as well. Home units talking to portable ones. WOW how cool would that be?

If they implement this idea of video calls (now that the PSP camera is out in the US) and text messaging on Skype for PSP, PlayStation would have another major selling point for its portable console. I really hope SCEA is listening because this is a no-brainer. There’s already Skype support on the PSP, so why not make it much more useful and awesome. This is a win-win situation for both Sony and Skype.

Skype finally bringing video calling to mobile


phiballa  |  December 31st, 2010 at 1:24 pm

The iphone4 now supports videos calling thru skype……SCEA please update the psp to do the same also….you guys are falling behind portable gaming console curve

yes please sony and skype we all want to video chat

With the NGP (Next Generation Portable) just announced with dual camera i have a feeling that we’ll just have to wait for it to come out to get this feature. It’s a bummer. I hope Sony doesnt stop supporting the PSP and PSPgo after it’s launch.
