Here's what you need to know about Don Mattrick's move from Xbox One to Zynga

Three things to know about the companies impacted by Mattrick's move:
ELECTRONIC ARTS
The set-up: Punctuating a year-long corporate tailspin, EA chief executive officer John Riccitiello announced in March that he would be stepping down. "This is a tough decision, but it all comes down to accountability," he said at the time. Larry Probst assumed day-to-day leadership at the company as he sought to find a replacement.

The story is too old to be commented.

You know what drives me crazy about the whole Don mattricks PR nightmare is the fact that if he didnt say anything about the xboxone information then guess what all you xbox fanboys would be in for a rude awakening come launch time.Think about it he really just did you guys a favor even if it was bad on his part.I gurantee that the xboxone would still have drm in it,you would have to have internet connection to play sp games ect.You honestly thing they would have dropped all those things from the xboxone if nothing was said.be thankful this happened because im sure guys like Steve Ballmer wouldnt had said anything and this discussion wouldnt be taken place and there would be an outrage down the road which would be a little to late for changes that close to launch.MS are showing gamers there true colors now and im sure something will take place before release that will be frowned upon by the time xboxone is available.

It had to come out one way or another before its release.. They can't exactly sell a console that only works online and not say so..

GameStop would have surely let everyone know.

I don't need to know any of these things. He left MS, and I really couldn't care less about why.

I really hope this blows over soon, because I got sick of hearing about this about an hour after I first found out about it.

That he's no longer at Microsoft. Rejoice, everybody!

Nothing. Because he's at zynga an that impacts my life in no way what so ever. I'm also not buying an xbox one.
