    it's due to exploits in psp games not the firmware.

    all they do is remove the game from PSN, patch the exploit and put it back on PSN. Nout to do with firmware.

    Guys, please try to stick to the subject, this is about the upcoming Skype app, which has NOTHING to do with any patches, exploits, or any firmware updates.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    does anyone think the 3ds might get skype one day?

    This is a completely gimmicky application which has no proper use.

    Gamers who use Skype could disagree with you, and I can't see anything wrong with getting more features for free ..

    They can't - it's not a system exploit and a system patch can't do anything about it. The moment a hacker finds a malfunctioning save struct nothing can be done other than re-compiling the game. The system itself doesn't do anything wrong - the only thing Sony can do is remove exploitable games from their store.

    Please tell me that it also works using 3G and Dis phone-sole iz da best phone-sole evar.

    The more features, the better right? Although I run skype through my phone, gonna be pointless app if I ever get a PS Vita WiFi model, not interested in the 3G version.

    Wait, they did join didn't they? Weird.

    I guess they don't mind since I can't see an XBox Portable on the horizon. Alternatively, Sony just bought a license to use the software seeing that PSP's were also equipped with Skype clients, just without video calls.

    nope, he actually was right
    bugs are patched via firmware
    http://wololo.net/wa...1-66-available/
    the games put back up on the store are still exploitable if you're able to get them on a 1.61 vita (which this guy did via psn on his ps3)
    http://wololo.net/ta...hp?f=52&t=11270

    but thanks for being super negative and incorrectly calling out dragonmaster who as he said did research on the matter and knew what he was talking about, that was swell

    I stand corrected myself - I was pretty sure that Sony doesn't fiddle with per-game patches.

    Nintendo didn't want to pay royalties for using *DVD's*, you expect them to pay royalties for Skype? Surely you jest.

    They'll make their own software that does the same thing, just slightly worse and with no infrastructure for landline/cellphone calls.
