Rumors have been flying about Microsoft’s alleged deal to acquire Skype. Well, it has happened people. Microsoft has bought Skype for a whopping $8.5 billion dollars. The acquisition of Skype will definitely broaden Microsoft’s ever growing market. Who could blame them for wanting to acquire a VoIP software that is so well known? Well, that is good and fine for them, but how will that affect us, the consumers?
According to several of the articles on the web, the acquisition means that you will start to see Skype being integrated into other Microsoft technologies, for example the Xbox and Kinect. Which when you think about it, won’t be surprising.

Project Natal Looms Ahead
Project Natal, Microsoft's bid to combat the huge popularity of the Wii was recently showcased at E3 2009. This advancement for the Xbox 360 platform, based on Israeli military technology, boasts a "controller-free gaming and entertainment experience". The device, which looks like a thin black external hardrive, is capable of full motion body capture, facial recognition, and voice recognition. To accomplish this, Natal is equipped with an rgb camera, multi-array microphone, depth sensor and custom propriety software. The device is meant to be placed on the top of your tv and completely discards the need for a control. This control-less factor is sure to be Microsoft's selling point for the console.
The emergence of the Wii and its meteoric success has shown everyone the future of the gaming industry. A more interactive, less restrictive future that meshes the player deeper into the gameplay itself. The gaming industry is continually breaking new ground and the need for a controller seems to be growing more obsolete as we speak. Who else is seeing virtual reality gaming a real possibility in maybe the next decade?
