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

Marketing, eh? Could be 6000 people that call folks to bother them with surveys during dinner.
Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries. Video games in particular often have cheats built right into the game.
