Microsoft Buys Skype For Lots Of Cash, Promises Live & Kinect Integration

Yeah, didn’t quite make sense to me either; especially the price that was paid: A cool $8.5 billion.

Still though, MS are promisng that Skype users can speak to Xbox Live users and vice-versa, although the company was coy on how it would integrate with Kinect.

“Skype is a phenomenal service that is loved by millions of people around the world. Together we will create the future of real-time communications so people can easily stay connected to family, friends, clients and colleagues anywhere in the world.”

So says Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer.

More soon.
