Dwango Developing Nico Nico Video Service for PlayStation Vita


During its Gamescom press conference in Germany earlier this week, Sony detailed some of the social aspects of PlayStation Vita, including free support for such services as Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare. But one strictly Japanese service did not make the slides.

Dwango appears to be planning to bring its Nico Nico Douga video service to Vita. The company has opened up a job listing for a "consumer game service engineer" to handle development on such a service for the new Sony hardware (listed as NGP, or "Next Generation PSP.")

The listing asks for people with PSP and PSP networking experience. You can view the Japanese language listing here.

Sony is expected to detail its Japanese Vita plans during a keynote address at the Tokyo Game Show is mid September. It's possible that we'll hear about Japan-specific services to go along with international services like Twitter and Facebook then.
