The 1UP team tossed out another hint about the possibly-soon-to-be-departed on this week's episode of the 1UP Yours podcast.
There something wrong inside microsoft, They are losing First party developers and head personel. First it was Peter Moore and now shane kim, At the same time they have lost Bungie Bioware and bizzare all of them in less then a year. What happening Within that company?
Bioware.....not a first party
Bizzare....not a first party
Bungie...still owend 49% by microsoft and they have dibs on publishing all future titles.
Peter moore...they then get the guy from EA so they've traded members and EA is now cemented more to supporting 360 near exclusively.
that they all have to pay $50 a year for XBL.
Jump In, or Jump...Ship?
Maybe this guy is getting ideas from Peter Moore. Yeah, great job Peter. PS3 sells the same amount as the 360 did in their respective first years, except ps3 had competition and a higher price point. Way to create the 360 with the same life-expectancy as an OAP moth. And way to jump ship before the situation gets too big. Oh well. Maybe Shane Kim is getting ideas too. I mean, what does 2008 have in store for 360? Uuuuummmm....pfff..uh, oh, oh! Gears of War 2! ...yeah. Just looking at the ps3's 2008 line-up is enough to make any 360 employee quit
oh well good luck to you mr wong or whatever
the 360 is like the dreamcast vs ps2 all over again.
people started to jump ship from sega and nows its happening to microsoft. oh well.
ps3 fans, hold off alittle longer, at least until febuary or march and we will have the last laugh when people see how much the ps3 will start outselling the 360
hints! hints I.E rumor:)
Meh if all of this is true makes ya wonder what they are trying to do/cook up
I hated this guy, he was so arrogant. I hate him as mich as Ken Kutaragi or Jack tretton, or even Peter Moore. I hope so badly that he is doing something Sony related, it'd be so funny. Imagine this stupid moron saying "Yes, I know I said PS3 was garbage before, but this new job lets me see PS3 in a new perspective."
He had class. And he never bashed the competition. Not to my knowledge. Even when he was with Sega.
They probably have to pay for XBL also.
hahaha yeah plus they're sick of there consoles getting RROD...only to get it repaired and have it happen again ...or maybe he played UNCHARTED..!!
something is rotten in Denmark.
Bungie were getting the most profitable deal for their games that was better than any other developer was getting. Yet they are splitting from Microsoft. Why?
Bizarre Creations as well (2nd party? with their golden handcuffs deal)
The Marvel Universe is a massive franchise, so if this is aborted it will be a major embarrassment for the Redmond cru.
reports are that Shane Kim has bad people management skills and alienating business partners, now he is being asked to jump... Jump Off.
Let us see how this plays out.
I don't know... Writing's on the wall, folks. Too many misteps here for Microsoft. I don't think there is going to be another xbox afterall. I think something is a foot with them.
Pter moore leaves
Shane kim is leaving
Rare is MIA
I can go on and on... Somethig is going on at Microsoft and the big picture is Games for windows, I think. I think Microsoft is seeing how successful pc gaming is again and is opting out of the costly console race. That's my take.
Who took peter moores place? He was the back bone for xbox.. What ever happen to that bald weird looking dude for MS?
Yea these are smart MS execs because they're leaving while 360 is on top; wait it's actually 2nd now next to the Wii. Why work for MS when the best game already came out which is Halo 3? Nothing on 360 is going to be better than Halo 3 from here on out.
