Skype May Replace Xbox Live Chat For Next-Gen Consoles
Posted on Wednesday, January 16 @ 13:56:29 PST by Nicholas Tan
In a day already full of consolidation, Microsoft will be putting Skype on the pedestal by "consolidating all their communications technology" into the platform, according to an article by CVG.
According to a source the article cites, that might have us "jump to the conclusion that we'll see asynchronous voice and video messages in the next-gen Xbox Live." This wouldn't be too surprising given that Microsoft acquired Skype for nearly $8.5 billion two years ago, but what will be surprising is if this is a sign that the next Xbox will have free online service.
Would you mind using Skype instead of Xbox Live?
