This is the first time I've ever cried to the death of someone I didn't know personally. His loss is a loss to everyone who ever got even bit of his amazing personality. My best goes to everyone there at giant bomb and his wife.

So.... 6 months left until Xbox One release date and the captain of the ship is already abandoning it before it even has a chance to leave the port? :)
I would bet good money that there was huge internal pressure for him to leave. Him leaving for Zynga is just a way to have both himself and Microsoft save face from a public firing, which would amount to admitting that they already failed with the XBO to date.
