Rumor - Don Mattrick's leaving MS, surprising no one.

After the One debacle, you can hardly blame them.  Word is he'll be going to work at Zynga.

[update] Confirmed.

Oh, also - speaking of console wars - y'know how Microsoft heavily hinted that Halo 3 and ACII would be their free Xbox Live Gold games for July?

Instead, say hello to Defense Grid: The Awakening.  Never heard of it?  Well, it's an XBLA tower defense game from 2009!  Oh, don't look so sad - it's got an 82 on Metacritic, that ain't bad!

I know, I know you were hoping for something better.  But you were hoping for it from Microsoft, so you've no one to blame but yourself. [/update]

  1. From the proverbial sinking ship (of his own design) to a literal one, huh?

    Well....that's something.
