Microsoft Reorganizes Departments, Xbox One Split in Two

Microsoft has made some interesting changes on the back end as far as how their operating systems are going to work. Not only is it the operating system and hardware that are going to be different, according to CEO Steve Ballmer, but the company of Microsoft itself is going to be divided in to teams of sorts that will run each section needed so that the next generation console can actually stand on its own two feet. As many of you have probably already guessed, this is another thing that gamers are raving and ranting on the forums about on any site that Microsoft is mentioned on.

According to Game Informer, “Ballmer’s email stresses collaboration as a key focus of the reorganization. “Improving our performance has three big dimensions: focusing the whole company on a single strategy, improving our capability in all disciplines and engineering/technology areas, and working together with more collaboration and agility around our common goals,” Ballmer told employees. For those intently watching the Xbox One’s communication issues, one passage might offer some hope. “We will reshape how we interact with our customers, developers and key innovation partners, delivering a more coherent message and family of product offerings,” Ballmer offers.

Other implications include a path toward a new financial reporting structure that will no longer break out different business units. This would make it much harder for investors to discern what products are under performing. As with any change in financial reporting, comparison becomes difficult in the periods immediately following a shift.” This is news that gamers should be excited about, not fearing and making it seem like Microsoft is just copping out or not providing enough for their gamers and fans. This may be what they have been missing out on for a very long time and who knows what it could do for them.
