Don Coyner, the man behind the design of Xbox 360, has left his post as lead of the design and experience group for Xbox, according to Cnet. Coyner has taken a new position inside Microsoft, according to Cnet sources, but it isn’t specified where that is. His replacement for the D&E Xbox group is Emma Williams, who is responsible for the recent Xbox Dashboard redesign. Coyner was mentioned in VentureBeat writer Dean Takahashi’s book ‘The Xbox 360 Uncloaked’ as having pushed for a “whole user experience to be consistent, like an Apple product.”
