Zynga “yet to realise its full potential”, says Mattrick

New Zynga CEO Don Mattrick believes he can help social publisher Zynga turn its millions of users into the cold hard cash so notably absent from its recent history. (Don Mattrick, Mobile, Zynga)

Mattick and Zynga reminds me of Rubin and THQ(not that Rubin talk as much as Mattick does).

Given Zynga recent performance I can't really see a big turnaround anytime soon. They closed tons of studios, cut staff and even shutdown games. Mattick would've better off going a different gaming company that isn't a sinking ship like Zynga, imho.

At least his stupid quotes will spend less time on the top news section now that he isn't a Microsoft employee.

Money hungry son-of-a-*****.

As if Zynga wasn't bad enough already, we have this clown leading them now.

I can't believe this actually happened, it was only about a month ago when he announced the Xbox One lol.

"Full potential"
Mattrick thinks he joined the Z Warriors or something.

He's more like dbgt era Gohan. The sucky version that squandered his potential

I read that quote in Darth Vader's voice for some reason.

How is it that he can go from running the Xbox division into the ground, to getting a job as a CEO with another big company in no time flat?

He managed to sink a battleship. It's just hilarious how he thinks he can now save the Titanic when its halfway underwater.
