Keener doesn't look like a pedophile when she smiles. Good for him though.

So
This douche came in when the 360 was doing well and since than the consoles software has been on the decline and he still has the audacity to be the arogant douche that he is.

On top of that he gets promoted. I guess MS is run by monkeys now. Mr Gates should come back and straiten out.

I hate this guy.

With this promotion he might just push kinect to have games hardcore gamers want. I doubt he will though.
YoshiMeetsU  +   1701d ago
This guy comes off as just sloppy and with his money there is no excuse for that.

Make no doubt Mattrick is the guy doing the casual push and taking a squat on the core gamers of Xbox. This is not a good sign at all for the core on Xbox.

So long as he fixes the Metal Gill Solid talk, he's good with me. He's a cheesy bastard with that smile and E3 definately could have gone better, but he could be worse. Bobby Kotick worse.

I will never give credit to their hardware, but I always admire what Live has done for console gaming, without Live on the original xbox, it was the first to truly pioneer a console version of online play and make it mass market, too bad I cant say that for the rest of their strategy.

he needs your support
This is his house in the middle of the screen:

http://virtualglobetrotting...

It is currently the most expensive house in Vancouver BC. He doesn't even work at Microsoft in Redmond, WA, he telecommutes. He claims he spends 15 hours per week playing video games. Please send him more of your money, he needs it really bad.
