...and Skype at the same time? I would like to be playing some Killer Instinct while actually seeing my friend in the upper right corner in real time. Is this possible to do or do I have to switch back and forth between the game and Skype?

Yes, you can play a game and Skype at the same time using the same screen. You can pretty much do anything on the console while playing a game.

That's awesome! I'm really excited about this feature.

Won't that block the health bars?

Yeah, most likely. It's not going to make the game any less fun if I can't see the life bars though.

If I remember rightly from the reveal, the video call part of skype comes in from the right hand side of the screen and covers roughly a 3rd of it. There is no way your going to be able to play a fighting game and video call at the same time if this is the case.

Ignore the FUD, when you SNAP anything on the XBO, the main image is scaled down, black borders above and below, as seen in the numerous videos of the latest UI.

You will see the entire game screen and be able to adjust the width of the SNAP.
