Microsoft to reorganize entertainment division-- Posted by XanTium on December 14 21:22 EST
From reuters.com:

Microsoft Corp. has split its entertainment and devices division into four businesses, the latest reorganization at the world's largest software maker.

The chief of the entertainment and device unit, Robbie Bach, responsible for launching Microsoft's Xbox video game business, told employees in a Wednesday e-mail he would turn his focus to longer-term strategy and partner relationships.
"While I will continue to play an important role in the games area, I will spend more time thinking about our broader challenges and opportunities across the division," Bach wrote in the e-mail.
Other changes include broadening the role of Peter Moore as head of the interactive entertainment business, which includes both the Xbox and Games for Windows business, Bach said.

I am guessing the first question they need to ask is what went wrong yet again in Japan!

Wouldn't it be strange if the Xbox 360 didn't fail in Japan?

I should be on Billy Gates' marketing strategy team for the launch of any new MS gaming console. I'd start bundling the console with all Windows OS releases. Let's see Japan avoid it now. ph34r.gif
It's a damn shame I'd prolly get sued for this idea tho.

"broadening the role of Peter Moore"

I don't know about you people, but I don't like the sound of that.
