Xbox Live Gold Subscription Required To Enjoy Skype On Xbox One

Microsoft Xbox Live Xbox One

This might turn into an another PR nightmare for Microsoft Xbox One. Xbox LIVE Gold features  are compared between Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles in a page on As you can see, there are list of items that comes under Xbox LIVE Gold on Xbox One.

  • Multiplayer Gaming
  • Entertainment Apps
  • IE on TV
  • The NFL on Xbox
  • OneGuide
  • Game DVR
  • Skype
  • SmartMatch
  • Exclusive deals and special offers.

While Multiplayer gaming, exclusive deals and special offers, OneGuide, The NFL on Xbox, SmartMatch may involve costs behind it, I’ve no idea why Microsoft still wants to charge Entertainment Apps,  IE on TV, Skype (really?), GameDVR, etc,.

What do you think?
