This sounds kind of dumb but the Skype app is so freaking cool! The Kinect is so high quality in both video and audio, it's kind of mind-blowing. And it is really neat and surprisingly not gimmicky the way the software zooms and pans the camera to track you around the room.

It's great for letting my daughter say hi to family.

I'll totally have a Skype date with any if you creeps, especially Daniel.

Typical MS fanboy. Bet you're a paid fake reviewer.

Enjoy your VCR!!

Hope you know a firefighter so they treat those serious burns!

Also, since MS bought Skype they must have learned a few things about VOIP because the party chat quality is so vastly improved over the Xbox 360. This might have something to do with the included headset being higher quality as well, but I can't tell from looking at it. It doesn't seem especially high-tech or any nicer than the old one, so I'm guessing the awesome audio is probably mostly attributed to the software.

Once my friend and I were able to navigate the horrible Party menus and actually get together into a party with voice chat enabled, the sound was almost uncomfortably true. It's like having someone in the same room with you talking directly into your ear. Better quality than my phone, for sure.

And I may be mistaken, but I think a party can have 32 peopłe. That probably sounds so weird.

I'm paid fully in DLC tokens for "Ascend: New Gods" so it is so worth it.
