    While Don wasn’t doing Xbox too many favors, I think most of the Xbox restrictions came from higher ups rather than Don alone. If anything, Ballmer could have influenced a lot of bad moves during Xbone reveal.

    They have spent billions on the system so it makes sense of someone like Ballmer to get more involved and screw things up.

    three times in front of your mirror, he will emerge and drag you to hell or whatever.

    I hate to break the embargo but I’m going to.

    It’s me.

    Yep, I said it, the news is out now. Steve asked me to do it a few days ago and I thought hey, yeah, why not, I couldn’t do a worse job than the previous guy!

    @10 I feel safer saying “Valdemort.”

    I just hope they get someone who knows how to speak to humans. After Douchy Donny told us all to stick with Xbox 360 if we didn’t want to go online I just plain couldn’t like him anymore. I’m not even someone who had a problem with the DRM, I just was offended by his handling of it.

    I’m sticking with Xbox despite the issues they had communication-wise, but I am still expecting them to continue listening to us and communicating things in an understandable way.
