PlayStation Vita adds Flickr to social channels available at launch

Sony has been hyping the social potential of the PlayStation Vita for quite a while now, touting the integration of Twitter, Facebook, and FourSquare with the portable gaming system. During a PS Vita event that occurred yesterday in London, popular photo-sharing network Flickr was added to the list of “Social Essentials” at launch.

The PlayStation Blog has details from the Vita event, and confirmed the four-network list of social media channels that will be integrated with the system at launch. The blog also promised to give readers a look at how the Vita incorporates the four social channels into the gaming — and non-gaming — experience in the near future.

The PlayStation Vita will hit shelves February 22 in the U.S. and Europe.
