That's why they cut the Xbox entertainment studio, because they weren't going to be using it (much) anymore.
And why they cut the marketing employees, for which NuAds were going to bring in a lot of work.
In my scenario, they're making cuts where the kinect and the NuAds are going to have the least impact/profit, due to lower sales.
The jobs that aren't getting cut, are open to everyone else. So they could be be moving people around from marketing to other positions.
The cuts at Nokia are due to restructuring, I'm not denying that.
The cuts at the Xbox division are a different story.
And your article basically backs up my claim:
“It is going to be deep,” said one manager who has not yet been given specific numbers to cut, but that it appears as if each unit will be required to show either substantive savings or a clear path to great growth in revenue.
Which would indicate that, if the situation was similar, it would indeed be due the xbox one not doing so good sales wise.
I just left off your cross dressing Scooby :D

I never throw in insults unless people insult me first, which happens quite a lot because I'm usually correct.
What I post is always backed up by facts, if I'm not certain of my case, I don't try and argue it.
The fact that you think facts or a decently build argument backed up by facts are somehow "misguided opinions" is a clear showing of the lack of value your contributions have to this topic.
What I mean by your posts only contributing to a lower level of public dialogue is exactly what you demonstrate in that post:
Not once do you address the actual topic until the vary last bit of your post and even then it wasn't actually addressing it, it was mentioning it should be addressed. Which you ironically, didn't.
Your posts aimed at me so far haven't addressed my arguments at all, either.
You simply throw crap around and see what sticks, but never once do you even attempt to address the post itself.
And it's not just in this topic, it's basically all you post when confronted with facts you don't like.
And that only leads to more people throwing more crap around instead of any actual discussion.
That's what I mean by your posts only contributing to a lower level of public dialogue.
I don't have to comment at all, there are a dozen topics with the same subject where I didn't post anything.
I understand it isn't pleasant to have to read stuff you don't like, but dragging some psychological BS won't make it go away.
There's an ignore button made for exactly that purpose: to make sure people don't get their feelings hurt by facts.
What discussion should be had, is up to what people want to discuss.
Right now, you want to discuss me and my posts (which seems quite obsessive imo).
If you go back and read my first post, you'll see I only posted my sympathies to the people who lost their job due to management decisions.
Go on. Say it. So you can go ballroom dancing with pensioners. We all know
I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

It's a Family Guy episode!!
I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.
This topic has gotten really awesome

Obviously these cuts were made to become more profitable, all I'm saying is that they weren't made as a reflex due to them not hitting a specific sales number or to their market position relative to Sony or Nintendo, but more because of Nadella's specific ideas about how it should ideally be structured in order to be most profitable, otherwise you could also imply that the cuts at Nokia were made because of how poorly windows phone is doing compared to Android and iphone.

I partially agree with you on that, it's not something that was suddenly decided and it's not solely because of the lacking sales.
What I'm saying, is that where those cuts were made, is due to the lower sales in that area.
The reason the jobs wee cut in Europe and not in the US, is due to less need of marketing people in that part of the world, due to the lower than expected sales.
The cuts would probably have been made regardless, but I'm suggesting they would have been made in different areas if the console had better sales.
I can see that being a possibility, but I think it is probably more likely that they would have been the same regardless due to how he handled the Nokia layoffs. They basically got rid of all marketing positions overseas and will be handling all of that from their corporate headquarters in Renton. That seems to be his preference.
