Skype was bought by Microsoft in 2011 for $8.5 billion. Why not integrate it into the Xbox 720 to take the social future of gaming forward?
Both MS and Sony will have it.
Only if MS allows it
It's on the Vita. Also very well implemented.
It was probably already in development for vita at a point where they would lose money if they didn't release it. I don't see them releasing it for PS4.
Depends. If there is contracts that are made already, MS has to go through w it. Hence, the psp/vita have it.
I have Skype on my computer which is right beside my game station. I think I'll be fine without it fully implemented into my consoles of choice.
Ya I never even use vid chat on psn , which is more than enough
I don't know about giving MS the upper hand, but a very good service to add to xbox live. I use it about 3x a week so I know for me it would come in handy.
If MS implements this right it could be a game changer.
Meh... A bulletin point at best. Skype would fare better mobile devices
It's not a game changer, but Skype is a great service and welcome addition to any console. But I find it funny it's taken so long since the buyout to merge MSN into Skype. Microsoft been pacing themselves too slow, so we shall see.
When a games console has to focus on everything other than games to gain "the upper hand", something somewhere has gone very wrong.
