But chat was good: You didn't have to pay for it.

I'm honestly shocked that this hasn't happened already, I thought that was one of the big reasons they went and purchased Skype for in the first place. I don't really consider this good news as there was no way this wasn't going to happen if Microsoft weren't completely stupid, but its nice to have some confirmation of sorts.

EvilTediz597 Skype is free. Plus Microsoft chat isn't free, at least not party chat. It's behind a paywall.

Does this mean that Axe can stalk me on his computer while I'm trying use my netflixbox360?

I'm not sure how I feel about that D:

The standalone chat is useable through Silver membership. I doubt Silvers will have access to any form of Skype app.

You know how you're able to use Messenger on your 360? You know how it always tells you that it was unable to sign in? Imagine that, but your party chat is at stake.

The entire chat system will be removed in favor of Skype so silver will have skype and of course, this is assuming that the gold membership will stay in it's current shitty form where everything is behind a paywall.
