Region switching streamlined on Xbox LIVE; voice chat to be replaced with Skype

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

Some big changes today centered on Microsoft's Xbox LIVE service. First and foremost, LIVE now offers additional support for region switching via a new account migration page on the Xbox LIVE website. Migration, which can be performed every three months, has thus become a rather simple process, with region-specific apps being the only thing gamers could potentially lose access to in the move (legal issues, and the like). 

Region switching streamlined on Xbox Live; voice chat to be replaced with Skype

A rather ominous note on the page reads "Before you change your region, make sure you've downloaded any purchased content you want to keep, like movies or music. Content purchases aren't refundable." 

Another considerably larger change involved the Xbox LIVE chat service, which CVG reports will be replaced by Skype on Microsoft's next-gen console. Skype, if you recall, is the chat service around which Microsoft now plans to base its entire online communication suite; the organization announced in November plans to shut down Windows Live Messenger in favor of Skype's messaging system.
