Tester fired for talking about broken Xbox 360’s

2 min read

We posted earlier about that big story doing the rounds that proved that Microsoft knew about the RROD problems before releasing the platform.

At the time I thought it was an obvious point but it seemed that people were enjoying the witch hunt. Well the tables have now turned and Microsoft are now doing the hunting.

Robert Delaware was one of the people who gave his name to that article, however the ‘intelligent’ man didn’t seem to realise that leaking information about your employer is a bad idea.

That’s right Bob was actually still working at Microsoft and it comes as no suprise that he has now been let go and also faces some civil suits.

Some people are saying Microsoft was wrong to have fired him but honestly if you sign a NDA (non-disclosure agreement) and the put your name on an article filled with company secrets what do you honestly think is going to happen?

Robert most probably didn’t care about losing his job at Microsoft but what he is about to find out is he has also lost all chance of working at any of the main gaming houses worldwide.

No one is going to hire someone so untrustworthy.
