I have a really good vision of what the next Guitar Hero, and I realized that we don’t have the resources“, reveals of his conversations with Phil Spencer about the future of the company in the hands of Microsoft.

They put all these ‘shitty’ alternatives on the market and they basically destroyed it when it was a really good future opportunity“. Skylanders would also have difficulties with hardware manufacturing but “it’s the same kind of thing we couldn’t do but Microsoft could.”
