Man, I like Don Matrick. Seems like a really likable guy and he's obviously excited to be up there on stage. I just wish the other people running Xbox division as a whole hadn't become so anti-consumer after Kinect came on the scene.

Remember the Xbox 360 reveal? These guys were actually passionate about gaming.



Also lol:

lol, what's really funny is they're going to set up their own used game market that ensures all of the money goes to Microsoft/the publishers rather than a used game store (which essentially survive on used game sales.) So basically that would be like being forced to sell your car to back to Ford so that they can re-sell the car themselves for a profit. It's amazingly sleazy and I genuinely hope it backfires on them.
