PlayStation 4: Skype for the Sony Console?

Sony and Microsoft really are the biggest rivals when it comes to consoles. However, it seems that both companies will have to work together when introducing the communication platform Skype for their consoles - although hot phase has already started. Mark Gillet - Microsoft's Corporate Vice President especially for Skype - has indicated aforementioned announcement. Microsoft and Sony are cooperating every now and again for quite some time, as both companies agree with supporting services that could be of use which is the case now. Furthermore it's said, that Skype has already been used for several Sony consoles like the PlayStation Vita. Why shouldn't they continue with their coming 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", stated Microsoft.


Nothing is set in stone, yet, but on the other hand there is nothing standing in the way of a cooperation. What do you think about this? Are you in favour of introducing Skype for the PS4 or rather against it?

Well as it looks like this is going to be a big theme to fuss about... But I mean lets say that Sony released a console with skype and that console is one for gaming,I mean wouldn't the game lag when talking to another person while playing the game ?

no more than when you're playing an mmorpg, fps, or moba on the pc and using any program like teamspeak , ventrilo or skype to keep up with sometimes dozens of people involved in the chats. it shouldn't be an issue, and the new cosnoles are both being designed to allow for other programs/OS options to be used while playing the games ps4 will even be designed to stream to twitch or to record gameplay sessions to upload to it later. so there shouldn't even be any software lag once they work it out, and the net lag would be on the users' ends. this is a good step forward, along with the twitch focus on the ps4. this has been needed for a very long time.
