Why does everyone believe what Phil Spencer says?

Does anyone not read up on Phil Spencer? A lot of people think that he's the "savior for gamers" when that's far from the truth.

Who was the general manager of Microsoft Game Studios worldwide since 2008? Phil.

Who was a part of Microsoft's E3 conferences since E3 2010 with the constant "Halo, Forza, Gears, Kinect, & Media" debacle? Phil.

Who was the one that led the development of "TV, TV, TV, Sports, NFL, etc.?" Phil.

Spencer and team led the development of brand new entertainment offerings including a landmark partnership with the NFL and collaborating with industry luminary Steven Spielberg to bring a new Halo live action TV series to life.

Shouldn't anyone be skeptical about it?

Phil was just a puppet of Don back then. He seems better since he gained control. Still, he is a just suit like Reggie, Yoshida, and that d-bag House.

So what you are saying is that when a company's leadership makes bad decisions, everyone who works under them is responsible, so they should fire everyone and start over from square one? Sounds like a sound strategy.

Take it from me, this never ends well. Despite the glaring evidence that while better than mattrick, and probably a cool guy, he really hasn't done anything yet.

They need to fire Phil Spencer and Yusef Medhi if they want to save face with the fans. Then they can say they cleaned out all the people that made the decisions and led the XBOX brand down the drain.

The CEO is winding down XBOX operations as the recent closures confirm so hopefully these two get their walking papers and they can get some competent management in place to resurrect the brand.

Exactly, he hasn't done anything yet. Nor has he had the chance to. So why don't we all just take a step back from the ledge and wait and see how this all turns out. The trolls aren't going to stop crying and screaming about all things xbox until either sony has a complete monopoly on the gaming market or PS4 gets some decent games, neither of which is going to happen anytime soon, so we're just going to have to put up with it.

Agreed wholeheartedly Dan, touting him as oh so great in the less than one year he's been driving is simply premature. Lets see how the X1 is doing in two years and we'll have a better idea on how he's doing.
