Nice headline there Bluexy.

The industry has really been shaken up recently, hasn't it? So many people coming and going and companies changing hands among other things.

At least the guy seems to be leaving by his own accord, sounds like their new course just got in the way of his original retirement plans.

Looong overdue. Maybe now Microsoft can stop sitting on its ass with fail after fail and start coming up with innovative new products that drive the market forward like their competing industry leaders.

GOOD! YOU DID A BAD JOB! Maybe the next CEO will do something right with Windows (Yeah, Windows, not XBox. XBox has already dug it's own grave and buried it in my book).

I'm just wondering this myself haha, all those comments must have totally gotten to them. Their internal infrastructure must be on panic mode and I guess now they're starting to fall out and show how much of a toll he gamers feedback has really done to MS. Well, I suppose better on Balmer's terms than MS's.

Mattrick moving to Zyanga, Balmer retiring, Atlus is up for auction, Iwata took over NOA its just crazy how much is changing, and its all leading up to the start of the next-gen of consoles. Its like new years is starting early.

I know, right?! Pretty fair summation of everything that went on. I just hope that these new individuals, including the newbie who takes Balmer's place, push Microsoft forward and not backward in technology terms. They've got great ideas going here, it's just a matter of who is going to put the iron fist down and put them to use, in my opinion.

Balmer should get his own xbox1 live show where he reviews games.

Might not necessairly understand the game... But he reviews it nevertheless
