Sony announced yesterday at Gamescom that the upcoming PS Vita will be socially robust with a wealthy plethora of social applications. Confirming that there will be device support for Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Skype, the applications will be made available via the PlayStation Store.
In the modern, always connected age in which we find ourselves, it is not surprising to see Sony bring social apps to the Vita. The problem facing the Vita however, is that our mobile phones are already brimming with these very things. With a vast smorgasbord of games found on iOS and Android (at a much more wallet friendly price) is there a place for the Vita to exist when it is released next year?
