Head of GFW Live among layoffs
Chris Early let go as job cuts grip Microsoft
Microsoft's Chris Early, general manager of Games for Windows Live, has been revealed as being among the recently reported layoffs at the company, according to a report by VentureBeat.
Early was appointed as general manager in July 2007, where he said he would work to "bridge the gap" between PC and consoles.
The Games for Windows service has foundered against stiff competition from Vavle's Steam, which has out maneuvered its rival since inception.
