Marc Whitten has just bailed from the Xbox team and this move could hurt the image of the new Xbox One console. While I've been an Xbox user in the past, there have been some issues with the platform and the Xbox One has certainly been shrouded in controversy. Marc was actually the head of the Xbox division and we'll just have to wait and see who floats to the surface to replace him. Let's hope it's not Nokia's Stephen Elop. He wants Xbox killed.
Whitten's decision to exit Microsoft will not affect the remainder of the Xbox leadership team. Going forward, these staffers will report to executive vice president Terry Myerson, who oversees all Windows, Windows Phone, and Xbox software and platform development. In a statement of his own, Myerson said he looks forward to finding a "great replacement" for Whitten.
