Microsoft Studios Hit By Lay-Offs

The timing of these layoffs is a bit odd. The company just promoted Phil Spencer to the new "head of Xbox" position and then the axe falls on a bunch of Microsoft Studios employees. Hmmm.

A Microsoft representative said of the lay-offs, "At Xbox, our goal is to constantly create new fun, social and interactive entertainment experiences. As part of our commitment to this goal, we are always evaluating our development priorities, and there are times when decisions need to be made to realign plans and refocus our efforts.
