To the men and women who have lost their jobs recently, be it at Microsoft or Sony or whatever you do for a living, keep your chin up, don't let self doubt creep into your head and above all, stay positive, you will bounce back stronger than ever.

The microsoft fanatics at GameSpot are even worse.

They're saying it's all a lie, and that no one is being laid off.

6000 people, hopefully, moving to a better business with better business practices. I don't see a problem here. Microsoft has done nothing of value recently. Windows 8 didn't go to well, Tablet PC's were too little too late, X1 is arguably not that strong right now. I expected this layoff a lot earlier to be honest.

That's not a double standard. Closing a game studio down is way bigger than firing some marketing people.

It's 6000 people... doesn't matter what department they're from. Only to an entitled gamer is closing down a game studio with maybe a few hundred employees "way bigger" than laying off 6000 people.
