Microsoft Skype Purchase Finally Goes Through

Looks like the Microsoft's acquisition of Skype has finally went through. The 8.5 Billion USD purchase back in May promised Skype integration on Xbox consoles, which we haven't seen as of yet, as well as integration on their mobile devices. Personally, I hope Microsoft fixes the crappy UI in Skype and removes the fee for group video chat.
