Windows chief set to replace Don Mattrick as Xbox boss

"Windows chief Julie Larson-Green is set to replace Don Mattrick as boss of Xbox, according to a report by business publication Bloomberg."

"Larson-Green is a 20-year Microsoft veteran who specialises in technical design and development. She worked on Internet Explorer 3.0, Internet Explorer 4.0, Microsoft Office and, most recently, Windows 8."



Almost pissed myself laughing when I saw this.

At least it's someone that knows and probably cares about gaming.

...

Hey, remember Microsoft Excel: the RPG?

I do like the reputation system though. Seems like it'll be a good fix for the massive numbers of shitbirds on XBL.

There is absolutely no way that this will be abused, ever.

... Also how long till MS Office gets ported to the XBox.

Shit, I...

Microsoft isn't positioning the XBox as a game console or a PC but as a device that hooks up to your TV and gets to be a central fixture of your /home/. The tablet is portable, but it's not part of your home because it's not bound to it. The living room is, though. The TV is. The XBone is.

What they're doing actually makes SENSE. PCs aren't cool anymore but something that augments your TV is (even if it ultimately... is the same thing).

It's a (somewhat limited) PC that they're marketing as something better than a PC by marketing it as something DIFFERENT than a PC.

... This is the stupidest fucking thing and it could seriously work completely how they're intending.

I'm betting that at least 50% of people who play on Live will down vote their opponents reputations just for being beaten because "clearly the person must have used exploits to beat me." Eventually having a crappy gamer reputation will mean that you are an awesome player. And thus the XBone will penalize people for being good at games. Awesome! :p

@MeshGearFox: Yeah is stupid and it has been happening for the last few years with many people not even noticing anything. Is not worth having an existential breakdown over it though.

In other news, money.

At least until Hulu and other online content providers start charging you on top of what you'd normally pay because of their software that detects whether you're trying to view them from something other than a PC like they did with Google TV (which is why nobody has Google TV).

Then again, with the way cable companies have been cutting services and ratcheting up prices all over the place these days, it feels like we're in an arms race to see which shit lord will be king of shit mountain.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGvHNNOLnCk Wait why do I not remember Ballmer being this camp. Jesus I'd buy twenty XBones if he was sellin' 'em like that.

40 if they put DOS in it.

I don't trash talk and I barely use my mic.  I don't taunt and I don't act like a dbag.  Yet last time I checked, I literally have a 24% approval rating.  You are surely correct.

You unplug it and it stays on and at that point you just leave the house 'cause y'all KNOW that thing's haunted.

Come home from school, talk to your kids, little Jimmy's all like, "MOMMY MOMMY THE MAN IN THE XBOX TOLD ME TO BURN THE NEIGHBORS' HOUSE DOWN."

Press the DISC DRIVE button. The USB ports start spewin' out BLOOD.

No it isn't possessed if it shows any of those symptoms, you see in truth they gave the XBONE an onboard power source so that you can keep gaming even when the power is out! And so that the secret satellite data uplink can't be interrupted mid transfer.

Jimmy telling you that the man in the XBONE told him to burn the neighbor's house down just means that he pwned a 30 year old on LIVE who took it badly.

The blood just means you chose poorly when deciding where to hide the body.  >.>
