Too late for Early : Games for Windows Live Head Axed

1 min read


Games for Windows Live, Microsoft’s beleaguered initiative to unify online PC gaming has been beset with problems, not least of which is negative gamer sentiment. The service has just been dealt another blow, as it appears that its general manager Chris Early was one of the casualties in Microsoft’s recent spate of layoffs.

What effects this will have on the future of the ailing Games for Windows Live service remain to be seen, but axing the head of the division – as well as further possible job cuts within the group – likely bode ill.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
