Stephen Toulouse, Microsoft’s Ex-Xbox LIVE Director, reported to be in a coma
It's Stephen, not Joshua.
They know that, it was reported by his cousin Joshua.
That sucks, hopefully he's able to recover.
:( crossing my fingers and hope he's getting better
Prayers for a speedy & healthy recovery.
I read Neustadter's tweet but he didn't name anyone. Didn't imagine he meant it was Stepto. Great personality on Major Nelson's podcast from a while back. Hoping for good news even with all things considered.
Here's wishing a speedy recovery.
I remember listening to him on Xbox Major Nelson's Podcast. Will be praying he recovers.
That will help...
Nice man hopefully he pulls out of this and enjoys the rest of his life.
These disagrees to this type of stuff, just shows how immature people are on the internet. Just because it involves MS, doesn't make it an automatic disagree.
I haven't owned an XBox console since 2009, but I really hope he pulls through this. He's a gamer, first and foremost. Shouldn't all gamers, regardless of system preference, be pulling together for him?
It has nothing to do with the fact he is a gamer, he is a person going through a very difficult tragedy and people just want to be disrespectful because they can hide behind their keyboard and anonymity. Btw, I wish him well and hope he can make a full recovery for his wife, children, and family.
Balsanoid - Regardless on if he was a gamer or not, people should still show their support for another human being. It's unfortunate that people will dislike him just for him working with a company they don't support.
Well yea, I know we should have compassion for all. I do . I'm just saying, there's a special bond among gamers. I remember my buddy and I arguing SNES and Genesis back in the early 90's. We were still the best of friends.
Regardless, a man is suffering, a family in agony.... nothing to do with gaming, its life. Hoping for a happy ending all round..... fingers crossed.
Pogmathoin You are completely missing my point. That's fine. Hope he recovers, and soon!
That sucks. Best wishes, Stephen!
Ouch, what happened? Car accident?
He saw the Halo 5 gameplay trailer. On a serious note, hope he makes it out ok.
Lol, good one.
Hang in there, man !
I hope he comes out of it, and have all his bodyfuctions working like "normal" people. I wish the family the power to give it a place, and believing, no knowing, that he comes out of it save and sound.
Thoughts and prayers to him and the family. Toulouse was a favorite of mine when he was at MS and on Major Nelsons podcast. In particular his reading out of the Book of Enforcement at PAX was a good laugh.
Hope he recovers quickly, i cant believe people would disagree just because he used to work at Microsoft he's a human being if that is your reason to wish him ill then you need to take a long hard look at yourself.
Hey if he don't wake up can I get his video game stuff? j/k best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Damn, hope he comes out of it and recovers quickly.
