According to Bloomberg, corporate vice president of Windows Program Management Julie Larson-Green is CEO Steve Ballmer's current pick to lead Xbox development. Unfortunately, she wouldn't be a direct replacement for Don Mattrick, who left the company to take over the CEO role at Zynga this week.

It even said she was responsible for earlier versions of Internet Explorer. If that is true, XBOX could be doomed from the start..

PS this is my first news. Sorry if its incorrect format!

just a snippit from wiki about her
Quote:
Larson-Green graduated with a degree in business administration from Western Washington University. She got her first job in Aldus for tech support. They were the creator of PageMaker Desktop Publishing Software that was later taken over by Adobe Systems. She is a self-taught programmer.This is evident in her urge to work with computers even before she used one. She did her Master's in Computer Science at the same time. She was then recruited as Development lead at Aldus. In 1993, Julie joined Microsoft as a program manager for Visual C++.[2]

In Microsoft, user experience became her passion. She has overseen the successful launch of Microsoft operating system, Windows 7. In 1997, she joined the Office team. She led UI design for Office XP, Office 2003, and Office 2007, as seen in her official Microsoft biography. Julie Larson-Green has been Corporate Vice President, Program Management, Windows Client. She has had between 1,200 and 1,400 program managers, researchers, content managers and other members of the Windows team reporting to her. She worked on the user experience for IE 3.0 and 4.0 and then, in 1997, to the Office team to work on FrontPage, where she got her first group program manager job. She also did a stint on the SharePoint Team Services team, back when SharePoint was known as "Office.Net.

Who cares about wiki facts and such?

I heard she was responsible for global warming and the Chernobyl disaster. MS is DOOOMED!

I don't think she'll replace Don as a stage talker though.

During her talk at the recent BUILD conference she was so incredibly nervous, I literally thought she was going to die. It kind of made her seem more human and likable than the regular statuesque smooth talker and the crowd seemed to like her. But software developer crowds and gamer crowds are two totally different beasts.

Why would they hire someone that has almost no ( Or none at all ) experience in video games?

Trainwreck waiting to happen.

Some pretty poor taste comments here... I personally know some really cool and intelligent chicks who like to game. One of them is beast on Super Mario 3 and the other plays LoL. There is no reason a woman can't positively influence gaming and who knows, maybe she might bring enough reasons for me to want to consider the XB1 over PS4 as I am heavily leaning towards PS4 right now.
