Microsoft fires whistleblowing employee
Games tester sacked for speaking publicly about 360 failure rates
Microsoft has sacked games tester Robert Delaware for speaking publicly about Xbox 360 hardware failures.
Delaware has been told he's likely to end up in court over the whole thing, but he has no regrets.
"I don't regret it," he told Takahashi. "I'll fight it. If they want to come after me, bring it on."
The now-ex-Microsoft employee reported he learned about problems with the Xbox 360 hardware while working for VMC, which tests games for Microsoft. According to Takahashi, he saw how "Xbox Live updates embedded in retail games could turn working consoles into worthless hulks". Delaware later went on to test games for Bungie.
