Skype on PlayStation 4

[ Edited ]

Skype's vice-president Mark Gillett has said he wants to bring Skype to the PlayStation 4.

“We’ve worked with Sony for a long time. Skype ships today on the PlayStation Portable amongst other cross-platform devices that we deliver to, and for the last few years we’ve also been shipping versions of Skype that run on Sony TVs. ”We’re obviously not party to their pre-release [PlayStation] hardware road map [but] we’re committed to cross-platform.”

I'm really pleased about this news but didn't think it was possible because Skype is a Microsoft company, but then they have made Skype available on Android and iPhone so it makes sense that Skype is an open platform. I really hope this works out as someone who intends to get the PS4 I'd love this because I could talk to my mom who lives far away.

Re: Skype on PlayStation 4

A backport to the PS3 would expand the Skype family in a meaningful way. At least talk about that possibility so that Sony takes notice and paves the way for an easier PS4 debut as a means of sweetening the pot for current PS3 owners to move to the new version. Right now the value proposition is nominal given the $500+ price tag.
