Kudo Tsunoda will expand his charter on the Xbox leadership team. (CVP of Microsoft Hololens)
Good luck to Kudo having people like Phil Spencer around should help him with advice managing the studios With Microsoft's continued focus on games, games, games I can see these reconstructions working out well combining smaller teams for more resources to get great games out quicker
can anyone tell me WTF is this guy?? with a japanese name, idiotic -douche-pose appearance and pathetic work history ..i wonder why MS hasnt fired him yet...
Yeah let's ruin a guy's life because he wears sun glasses.
He wears the glasses do to a condition with his eyes.
Apparently he wears his sunglasses because of glaucoma. The same thing Bono from U2 and footballer Edgar Davids have. They both wear orange tinted sunglasses everywhere.
breakpad For all I know Kudo started at EA and created Def Jam Icon and EA Fight Night. Then moved on to MS as Creative Games Director for Xbox 360 and Kinect games. But it's good to see you back and best of luck in your new endeavours ( he's taking over Phil Jackson position).
i don't really like how they mention halo, gears, minecraft and forza as franchises and then go on to talk about studios for kudo to look after. to me it sounds like they will continue to rely mainly on those bigger titles and rehash them over and over again while investing less into creating new ip's.
every time I see Kudo, I'm reminded of this https://www.youtube.com/wat... LOL funny stuff!
Well He's good with tech that's why he gets the job , just bad at creating and manageing games . Kinect was badly used and a waste of time for the most part , but it was still a pretty great technology , just badly used or too in advance for its time
@Lifes its going to be a great year. I hope i'll be able to buy all these games.
This might seem like a stupid question, but did Kudo ever solve the kinect problem with the avatar's shoe?
If he only took off his glasses...
He has an eye issue that makes him extremely sensitive to light, IIRC. At least he's not looking like he just came out of a gym in the 80s now.
Ahh I didn't know that, I thought he was just rocking the glasses for style
Why you so concerned about what the man is wearing? Like you are attracted to him or something. He has a problem with his eyes. Please move on and focus on his role and responsibilities and stop with the glasses and hair on his face and his butt checks or what ever else you are focused on.
Ok I'm sort of at ease because he mentions the Kinect didn't translate to the type of gamer that I am. Hopefully with Hololens they support it better with its core audience. But with that said I'm still highly skeptical on the whole thing. Good for Kudo though he seems very much involved with its 1st party than Phil Harrison was.
Make another fight night !
My only complaint with the MS studios is that Lionhead should really either make a Fable 4 and end the series or make a new open world IP. I think that's a very talented studio that just needs to go in a different direction right now. Another thing I'd like to see is MS buying some of these indie studios that have interesting games on a smaller scale. I'd love to see what Capy games can do with a multi million dollar AAA IP or what the studio that made shovel night could do with a AAA budget. Lastly, I'd really like to see them go all out and get 4 or 5 games in development with the same budget, scope, and lore that games like Halo and Gears have. I think Halo, at least with Chief's arch should end with Halo 6 or 7 and this should be Gear's last trilogy. I think they have enough talent in house to get some new IP's out there that can make an impact.
What a douchebag. Someone need to tell him that he is not a rockstar and he doesnt need sunglasses when someone do an interview with him.
And he is a douchebag cos he is wearing sunglasses during an interview? how does that affect you?
He is a douche bag for having glaucoma? He wears the sunglasses because of a medical reason. So who is the real douche bag here? The guy who wears glasses so he can see or the guy who calls people names for no reason? Do you also tell blind people to stop being jerks and take off their glasses and ditch the dogs too?
This douche nozzle has been a plague since the dreamcast days. Wannabe itagaki putting out shitty content. Id be embarrassed to have this cunt on my team
its a good thing you are not on this team then.
I wonder what Ken Lobb is doing then because I thought this was the job he had overseeing studios like Rare? Haven't heard he has left or anything.
