Quotes

"I think it's about them thinking about the next game that's going to be the next 'Rare game' and really stand for what they are. So they've got some new ideas, they're excited about them and I think Rare should, can and will be an important part of our game future" Spencer concluded
Back in March, Microsoft Xbox Group Program Manager David Dennis told Ars that Kinect was the kind of thing that "once you take out, lots of people will go, 'Gosh, I really liked that, I got used to it, and I'm going to miss it." Dennis appears to be mistaken, as Microsoft has announced that  Xbox One sales in the US more than doubled in June compared to May, following the availability of a $400 Kinect-free version of the system . "
...The announcement from current Xbox head Phil Spencer also confirms Ars' exclusive report yesterday , declaring that  "popular entertainment apps will be available for all Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners... whether or not you have an Xbox Live Gold membership."
...as Nokia CEO, and again in the last several months as we've worked through the initial stages of integration planning," Nadella said in the email. "I look forward to working with Stephen as a key member of the senior leadership team and welcoming the Nokia Devices and Services employees to the Microsoft family."
