Don Mattrick Reported to be Leaving Microsoft...for Zynga?


According to Games Industry, Xbox Chief Don Mattrick is leaving the company possibly bound for the CEO role over Zynga.

Quote:
Although the news is not yet official, Kara Swisher of AllThingsD is reporting that Don Mattrick, Microsoft's head of the Interactive Entertainment Business, is on his way out. Citing "multiple sources close to the situation," AllThingsD says that Mattrick is close to joining social games firm Zynga. In fact, Mattrick may be working in close partnership with Mark Pincus, becoming the new CEO (apparently meaning Pincus would take another executive role at the company).

Let the supposition and theorizing begin!

You can take at as abandoning ship if you want, you can take it as someone trying to better their career, you can take it as someone chancing money. It is what it is. I don't have one once of feeling that it had to do with Xbox.

Anyone of us would take a better job, even an CEO job over what we currently have.

I dunno.. leaving Microsoft for Zynga? That's like failure chasing failure, to me. From a catastrophe building to a catastrophe in progress.

Well, Zynga has been on a downward slide, but that kind of 'risk' on the part of an executive can pay off handsomely if he succeeds at his new job in restoring their fortunes as a company, especially if it's as CEO.

Great risk can lead to great reward. I wish him well.

Might be a huge pay increase, but this guy is a clown. He could have greatly improved how those presentations were percieved, and they blew up.

His interview with Geoff Keighly will go down in infamy.

Its that reading thing again isn't it. Its hard I get it, or its the fact you are just attracted to my Green name and can't resist yourself.

Like I said, I am taking it as him looking for a pay day. If he turns that company around or was guaranteed a lot of money, you can bet he took it. That is the thing with CEO jobs, if you sign a contract that states you get 5 million dollar bonus regardless, you get that 5 million dollars no questions ask.

This kind of shit happens a lot.

Does the entire fucking Internet world revolve around you? I didn't even read your damn post, didn't reply to it, and frankly don't give a shit what you said.

Grow the fuck up.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHA you assume I was attacking you? I was using your fucking quote to prove a point. Boy, you are more retarded than ever.

Wait, I forgot... SHILL SHILL SHILL SHILL SHILL SHILL SHILL SHILL

Coming from the guy that doesn't quit a fight because he believe he shares one view in the world and if you dont share it you are wrong, telling me to grow the fuck just makes me laugh even harder.

Wait, I forgot, I didn't call you a SHILL recently, SHILL SHILL SHILL SHILL.

Fucking douche.

This story -- hilarious.

They deserve each other. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, Mattrick.

Little clue, moron. If you're replying to a post in agreement, you don't begin with:



"Its that reading thing again isn't it."

Fucking douche.

One of these days I'll have the time and the motivation to fight with a random person on the internet about an opinion on a topic that doesn't even matter on an issue of pure speculation. It seems fun.
