Xbox's Next Trick -- Skype

By Gary Cutlack on at

A Microsoft job ad gives us a pretty clear sign that Skype integration is coming to its Xbox console, with the tech giant looking for staff to join a "Skype Xbox Engineering Team" based in London.

It may not be for the Xbox 360, though. The listing states Microsoft is "building the next generations of our products and technology" so it could well be that Skype integration is set to be one selling point of Microsoft's next Xbox, rather than yet another app it needs to squeeze into its packed-to-bursting Xbox 360 dashboard. [MS via The Verge]
