Your comment, the amount of agrees, and the fact that you haven't been labeled as a huge fanboy and a troll, shows what is wrong with this site, Everytime I see your name around N4G, I see comments bashing Microsoft.

ajames3471663d ago

to be fair, he's bashing Zynga too.

ThatCanadianGuy5141663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Is my comment wrong tho?

1)Xbox has been a PR nightmare and the entire brand has been tarnished because of it

2) Don is leaving to join Zynga

3 Zynga is a business nightmare right now

All of these are facts.And somehow, i'm a fanboy for that? I think you need to relax a bit, my man.Any comment i see from you is always rabidly attacking anyone who even remotely says anything but praise for microsoft.

DayZ is a troll who is having affair with one of the mods in this site to not get his comments removed.

Omar911663d ago

your disagrees prove your point in so many ways... smh. This site is ridiculous sometimes.

first1NFANTRY1663d ago

cry more troll. welcome to 2006 only now the tables have turned.

only difference is back then ps3 gamers didn't whine like you 360 fangirls.

Oh_Yeah1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Well if you Xbone guys have any funny pics about PS4 or any valid reason as to why anyone would want xbone then speak up. I haven't heard any and it's pretty hard to find something to bash the PS4 yes it'd be trolling and fanboyism on your guys parts.

assdan1663d ago

A fanboy isn't always wrongs. This time it's pretty true. Especially with zynga, who has just laid of tons of employees. Microsoft isn't sinking yet, but if they keep going they way they are. They won't be in the console gaming market for long.

Drekken1662d ago

Oh come on, Virus... you act as if you have to be a fanboy to bash MS. They have made it pretty easy lately. I think it is all well deserved. People should have started when they released the 360 with the RROD.

Don't see what you're so mad about. The picture was pretty funny.

zeal0us1663d ago

Shouldn't the Zynga ship be about sunken compared to MS's ship?

BOLO1662d ago

Microsoft (game) STUDIOS. Not Microsoft as a whole.

zeal0us1662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

OMG it was Microsoft (game) Studios ship who knew? /s

BTW, I was too lazy/just didn't care to type all of that out, so I said "MS's ship" instead.

I kinda agree, but I think Moore is happy where he is now.

Transporter471663d ago

Wonder why he decided to jump ships.

MikeMyers1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

This has been in talks for months. Some want to relate this to all the Xbox One controversy but I doubt that was the reason.

We see people leave all the time like Phil Harrison from Sony. Nintendo needs to restructure itself too and Kaz Hirai seems to be doing a good job so far turning Sony around.

Don was a nice guy but wasn't a very good PR guy for the Xbox. Marc Whitten, Nancy Tellem, Yusuf Mehdi, Phil Harrison or Phil Spencer could be the replacement.

I'd like they them to go with either Yusuf Mehdi or a woman, Nancy Tellem.

TV, TV, TV ...watercooler!

Polysix1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Nancy Tellem made me want to puke at E3*

*like most of the rest of the MS E3 staff, she came across more like a politician than anything to do with entertainment.

mewhy321663d ago

Because all the rats jump off a ship when it's sinking!!!!!!

dark-hollow1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Microsoft (Xbox department) is a sinking ship??? Lol this site is the gift that's keeps on giving.

ajames3471663d ago

Most probably a matter of money, as usual. Go where they pay you more.

CerebralAssassin1663d ago

Im guessing it wasnt so much as jumped ship as it was kicked off the ship.

wastedcells1663d ago

He seemed frustrated. That comment about if you don't have an Internet connection we have a product for you called a 360 was priceless. Sign of a guy who is fed up.
