W75's Will Anderson reflects on the impact of Microsoft's departure from the Consumer Electronics Show and how it will affect the gaming industry.
Maybe they will just have a special Microsoft day thing like Steve Jobs did with Apple but without the black turtle neck sweater and tight jeans.
My thoughts: Not likely. It's too expensive to do it alone and there's a million events every year that they can leverage.
oh Microsoft how youve fallen.....seems like Apple has overtaken you....if only bill gates had stuck around.....XP was amazing but they have ruined it since Vista :(
Still stuck in 2007?
Actually most of MS products are very popular and successful in the past years. Windows 7 Xbox 360 Windows phone 7 MS Office (Best one ever!) IE 9 made great steps in the right direction Kinect Silverlight Sure there are products like Zune and Kin, which did not do so well, but overall MS made some really great moves. But yeah broken record keeps on spinning.
Zune didn't do well because they didn't market it. It was one of there "Throw at wall. See if it sticks" plans. The Kin was just fail all over.
