XBOX 360 SKYPE APP?

    Question

  • With the compatability of the kinect sensor and skype, will we be seeing an app for skype hit the dashboard?

    I'm also curious to why the kinect chat or kinect party is only limited to view two cameras at once? Why can't we kinect with multiple locations in a kinect party chat? Facebook and Tweet is a couple apps that have hit the dashboard... now with the Kinect I would hope to see the Skype app too?

  • Hi Torrey, you're probably asking this in the wrong forum, this one is all about the new Kinect for Windows SDK, most of the people here wont have any XBox development knowledge.

    Plus, the only reason the kinect now works with skype is because someone used the SDK to fool Skype into treating it like a web cam...  Long story short, Microsoft didn't make Kinect and Skype compatible on purpose it was just a by product of the SDK.  However, if this is something you're after on the XBox then you should probably find the XBox developer community and ask there :o)
