According to All Things D, Microsoft could be restructuring. Their unnamed sources have said that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is personally working on the restructure, and that current execs would have more prominent roles. 

Going even further with interactive entertainment, execs that could be getting larger roles include Satya Nadella, president of the Servers and Tools division; Tony Bates, president of its Skype communications division; and Don Mattrick, president of its Interactive Entertainment division. It's still unknown what the expanded roles would include for these executives. 

At Microsoft's Xbox One reveal, Skype was shown as a way to communicate with your friends during a game, tv or for group video calls via the system's Kinect.
