Facebook and Twitter apps ready for Vita launch

Publish date:

Sony has announced that Twitter, Facebook and Flickr apps will be ready to download on Vita's PSN Store on day one.

All three apps will be free to download as soon as the Vita store goes live – which could be as early as tomorrow evening (Feb 21st).

Sony adds that the Twitter app, called LiveTweet, is a custom-made Vita download that includes much of Twitter's regular functionality

Apps for location service Foursquare and communications tool Skype will follow at a later date.

In addition to these apps, every game that arrives at UK retail on Wednesday will also be available to download from PSN. And if the UK market follows the example laid down by Japan and the US, the digital versions will be cheaper too.
