Skype To Offer Gaming Connectivity

Skype has announced that it will be offering a software developer’s kit (SDK) for its new GameXN framework. The plan is for Skype users to be able to invite one another into online games. No word yet on if Skype plans on allowing users to communicate via VoIP during the game, but I’d imagine it’s in the works. Windows Live Messenger already has some similar features, but a lot of people use Skype and it’s cross-platform, so maybe it’s onto something here.
