Aaron Greenberg with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson
It's been a week of major announcements for Microsoft's Xbox division and late on Friday there was one more smaller, but still significant, reveal. The Xbox team now has a new global marketing leader for its games: Aaron Greenberg.
The announcement was made by Greenberg himself on his Twitter feed:
Previously, Greenberg served as the Chief of Staff for Microsoft’s Devices division for over three years. Before that he was the company's director of product management for the Xbox 360, which means that he has a large amount of experience working with everyone at the division and should be a perfect choice for his new gig.
This news caps off a week that saw Microsoft announce plans to sell a version of the Xbox One without the Kinect sensor for $399.99, a decision to ditch the Xbox Live Gold requirement for streaming apps on the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and the reveal of Halo 5: Guardians for the Xbox One, due in the fall of 2015.
