Stephen Elop in charge of Microsoft games and hardware

"Stephen Elop may not be Microsoft's new CEO, but the former head of Nokia is not going unrewarded for bringing the phone manufacturer into the Microsoft fold. According to an internal memo, Elop will replace Julie Larson-Green as the head of Microsoft's Devices and Studios business, putting him in charge of Xbox, Microsoft Surface, and Microsoft's game development efforts, in addition to the new cellular handset business. The memo reportedly comes from Julie Larson-Green herself as she takes on a new role: she's becoming the Chief Experience Officer for the company's Applications and Services group, managing the look and feel of products like Bing, Office, and Skype."

So you bumped this topic just so you could have another Elop topic to troll on then?

Pretty sure the guy is going to be less likely to want to sell the division he just took charge of chief.

How is it trolling? It's what the guy said he wanted to do.
And now he's the xbox boss, so he'll actually be able to do it.

Of course not.

I have complained about the obvious stupid decisions, a lot of which got reversed proving that I was right about them being stupid decisions.

If by trolling you mean being right, than yes.

Are you both honestly claiming that the guy in charge of the xbox division has no say in what happens with the xbox?
Because that would be rather silly.
