You know, to me thats basically the equivalent of Shane watching sony at gamescom, watching the ps3 slim sales, watching trailers of uncharted 2, gran turismo 5 and other ps3 titles.........then looking at the 360. And then he looks at the ps3. And then back at the 360. And then he blindfolds himself, takes out a cigarette, has 2 nice deep breathes and then pulls out the gun and shoots himself.
PS3 has that effect on the opposition. It only does everything.

He was at Microsoft for 19 years . Guess that would be right about time to retire .

But i hope phil spencer brings some games for xbox 360 .

I wish you a nice Retirement Shane Kim and congratulations Phil Spencer.
I wonder what new IPs with Phil as the lead will bring to the Xbox brand. I hope to see many new great games.

It's been fun Kim. You've brought some great stuff and not so great stuff. I hope the "new" guy understands MS's position in this console competition better.
