Report: Microsoft To Replace Xbox Live Chat With Skype

The industry news site Computer and Videogames is reporting that Microsoft intends to replace Xbox Live chat with Skype in an effort to “consolidate all of their communications technology” under one banner.

CVG says the information comes from a “a person familiar with the matter.” This source says that Skype would become the default communications technology across all of Microsoft’s platforms, including the next-generation Xbox, PC, and tablet. The source also said, “You might jump to the conclusion that we’ll see asynchronous voice and video messages in next-gen Xbox Live.”
