Some of the job cuts will be in marketing departments for businesses such as the global Xbox team, said the people. The European Xbox team is based in Reading, U.K.

The company had 127,104 employees as of June 5, after adding about 30,000 in its acquisition of Nokia’s handset unit.

Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries. Video games in particular often have cheats built right into the game.
