Posted on January 13, 2008, William Xbox Live Issues: Why Haven't We Heard From Microsoft?
I have been curious about that answer for days myself. I really expected the Microsoft PR machine to start rolling out some answers for us. I assumed that the worst possible PR move was for them to leave us all in the dark. New information has surfaced from Major Nelson……
Apparently the Texas lawsuit against Microsoft has a lot to do with the lack of information. In the weekly Major Nelson podcast, it was revealed that Microsoft can no longer update us on the situation due to legal issues. I’m not sure if this is spin, or if they have been instructed by higher powers to keep silent. I can certainly understand that it’s sometimes unwise to make public statements in the middle of a court case, but Microsoft needs to consider the gamers who really need some answers.
Hopefully we’ll hear some positive news about this soon.
