It was his job to sell it. You should blame him.

Bit hard to sell it when you are given 0 studios to work with.

Bet he got paid really really well aswell

This poor guy must have been like the Maytag repairman.

He could probably just walk into Nintendo or Sony and be like " Hey, You guys got any of that stuff called work around here? I have been on a payed vacation for 8 years and a little sense of accomplishment would go along way for my self esteem "

Isn't it possible he was forced out? I mean xbox has failed in Japan. They could have forced him to resign

can't believe how long he was allowed to stay in the post he has done an awful job on both consoles :/ of course the guys in Redmond didn't help his cause either

It's not his fault, Xbox could be the best rpg player ever and they still wouldn't buy it.

If it had the best rpg on it exclusive it would have sold in spades. On the 360 we saw bumps in sales whenever games like lost odyssey (a B tier game) came out. If it had final fantasy as an exclusive you can bet it would have shifted boatloads.
X1 barely has RPGs on it at the moment And it won't even have the upcoming persona 5 which is exclusive to ps4.

Well now that he's gone time to find some Youngblood , that knows the industry out in Japan. Who not afraid to think outside the box .
