J Allard's Parting Email To Microsoft

The official Microsoft blog has posted the full text of an internal email sent by J Allard, on the subject of his impending departure.

In part, it quashes rumours that the split has been acrimonious ("In response to the curiosity, no chairs were thrown, no ultimatums served"), but the scope of the lengthy missive is far broader than that. (Industry, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

That's pretty sneaky firing people just before E3 so media and haters have little time to spew poison at the same time most likely announcing the new guys and the restructuring with 360 Slim and Natal at E3 lol. Anyways Microsoft has always announced new leaders/Heads at E3

I don't know about that. In 2007 or something like that, another key member of the Xbox division left, yet at the time the 360 was as much a success as the PS3 is now, I don't think Allard left because he thinks the 360 is failing. I think he left because he feels his potential with MS has run its course.

Great Email
This dude has a serious passion for what he was doing and loves MS. Only job he has had since leaving college.

I'm always amazed at how deep the wells of hatred are for MSFT from some people here. Here's to hoping Jay lands a job with someone in the industry.
