Speaking to Kotaku, Xbox production boss Aaron Greenberg’s promised there’s not going to be a replay of last year’s Christmas “refusing to work” Live fiasco. No sirree.

“We’ve built a lot of infrastructure, a lot of behind the curtain no one sees,” he said. “This is something that Microsoft is good at.

“We are well prepared for the type of growth we expect this holiday.”

And if things do go tits up, Greenberg said Microsoft will be prepared.

“We will have people standing by, more people on hand than we’ve ever had before,” he said. “Knock on wood we will hopefully not have any issues.”

Good luck, Aaron. More through there.
