Should we blame Don Mattrick for the Xbox One's mediocre start?

To all the ones saying it wasn't Mattrick's fault how does it feel to be in the minority?

Have you seen the votes to this poll? It is virtually 2.5:1 in favour of Mattrick to blame.

The utter class clown Mattrick is to blame. Why cant you lot (the ones saying it wasn't Mattrick) see that?

It was his terrible ideas that MS listened to and it was him that launched the Xbox One and only cared about the TV crap side of it so it is all on his shoulders. The only other person you could perhaps blame is the clown that hired Mattrick in the first place.

And what about the fact that the total cowardly crap quit before he could be fired. MS knew who to blame and that proved his guilt and that it was him that destroyed it.

Mattrick was the head of the division at the time, if I recall correctly, so he would be ultimately responsible for what it turned out to be.

But it wasn't just Mattrick, though.
Designing the Xbox wasn't a one man effort.

9 months of DRM negative speculation and they still went through with it. MS as a whole is to blame.

yet he was also responsible for the 360, and the 360 was a success. Also he left ms because he was offered millions more than what ms offered him.

Guy is a loser. Who hires someone with the name matrick?

Plus he has a huge nose.

I'm pretty sure no 1 man makes decisions. It comes down to a vote between company officials. Don Matrick seems to be one the officials in favor of the mandatory Kinect, always on-line, mandatory drm on-line authentication otherwise your console wont work, being able to gift your game only once, rules where you can and can't sell your game, and no used games.

This is probably the worst idea that I have ever witnessed in the history of video games. This is worse than Nintendo's idea of sticking to cartridges for the N64 or Nintendo's failure to recognize on-line gaming as essential for business.

He didn't make the 360, he only came around in 2007.

However, he was the driving force behind the kinect.
So he was pretty much the architect behind the failure ever since he first started there.
