Being an Xbox owner, I am dissapointed that he is leaving. I thought he did a good job with the Xbox considering it was its intial entrance into the market. I think he did a rather good job on which titles to go with and which should be scrapped or reworked. I hope they get someone better to fill his shoes, but I must admit I did like his work. If they hire someone who sucks I just wont buy and xbox2.
