This board's attitude:

"Layoffs?! How will this affect the way people see my Xbox One?! Oh, just marketing guys. F*** 'em! Get jobs you lazy bums! Xbox is #1!"

Pretty despicable guys. They have families, houses, etc. and you only care about your Xbox.

There's literally 1 post depicting that attitude but keep generalizing


I just showed three, but keep failing math class.

Yup those 3 sure represent the board

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.


sucks to see people lose their jobs, but i guess MS financial is not as invincible as most people think


companys get rid of staff that they dont need all the time, its a money saving tactic not a reason to panic

Who said this?


Posts 2, 6 and 8 are pretty much exactly what I said.


Lol, no, not quite.

Now, try again to justify your original post.

A train station is where a train stops. A bus station is where a bus stops. What about my PlayStation?

If it is just the marketing department they should get rid of Head of Global Product Marketing Aaron Greenberg and Microsoft Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Yusuf Mehdi.

But I bet the normal workers will get the axe instead of the decision makers.

Due to recent economic conditions, and the rising cost of Electricity, Gas and Oil, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

The Xbone had terrible marketing at launch. It's first ever commercial was nothing but sports.

Yay for rooftop parties and watching TV lol. Guess that didn't pan out so well for MS. They tried to cash in on the casual audience and ended up getting demolished by the competition. I'm just surprised MS didn't lay off these people sooner.

Gamers want to see games, not rooftop parties LOL!!

I called Ace for generalizing after one post. I bet you didn't even look at the topic I was talking about in that link you have.
