Another Xbox Executive Leaves
Filed under: XBOX, MICROSOFT

Xbox Chief Product Officer Marc Whitten is the latest top executive for Xbox to leave the company. He's accepted the Chief Product Officer position at Sonos, a living room entertainment group.

"I have had the extreme pleasure over the last 14 years to work on the greatest product with the greatest team and for the greatest community," Whitten said in a written statement. "Xbox is so special because of the amazing team I've had the opportunity to work with and because our fans are the most incredible fans on the planet. It has been the highlight of my career to work on a product so loved. It's incredibly tough to leave but I am confident the best days are ahead for Xbox fans, in the capable hands of a very talented team."

Whitten didn't say why he left, but many speculate it has to do with Xbox One's lackluster launch in comparison to the PlayStation 4.

The Xbox group will now report to Terry Myerson, who is in charge of Microsoft's OS development.

let's see, the bean counters at MSFT decide to ruin the console by squeezing consumers for every last bit of margin they can (DRM, pay per feature, subscriptions, etc) and when that fails they fire the guy responsible for delivering the innovations that customers were really willing to pay for these last 15 years?
