MSFT: ‘Killer’ Gift to Customers

Apparently, some of the updates that Xbox One Cloud requires may force a mid-game reboot. The firm announced that updates on cloud will be required on a regular basis, and that they could lead to an unwarned system reboot!

“Once in a while, rather frequently actually, the host OS will require an update, meaning the physical machine is going to get rebooted whether your code is running or not,” explained John Bruno, the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Xbox Live lead program manager. “That’s a problematic thing for a game, and oftentimes it’s in the middle of a multiplayer session. We’ve worked very hard to overcome that, but that’s not to say it’s going to be a reality in every case,” he revealed during a presentation at GDC Next yesterday.

I’m not making that up! These guys are crazy. And in the meantime their share price is up a huge 4% yesterday on the rumors that the shortlist for a new CEO is down to 5 names now, including Ford CEO Mulally and Nokia saboteur-in-chief Elop. I’m happy I’m not short MSFT during this latest episode of Mr Market’s irrationality.
