Is Microsoft Downgrading the XBox Business?

July 2, 2013 12:06:48.751

Either this move is a stopgap, or MS is seriously downgrading the XBox business within the company:

Whether Microsoft realizes that or not, it seems they aren’t in any rush to hire someone new or promote an existing Xbox team member. In fact, Don Mattrick is being replaced, but not by a games person. Instead, Steve Ballmer will be taking on his role and handling all communication with the rest of the Xbox management team.

From a revenue perspective at MS, XBox is tiny - so just how much time would anyone expect the CEO to spend on it? This doesn't bode well for the future of the platform....
