It's been a hectic week for Microsoft, what with the big game Halo 3: ODST coming out to the market pre-maturely than they would have wanted. They also had one of their top execs, Shane Kim, move out, and in his stead were two Xbox execs.
No time to wallow indeed, especially when you have new hardware coming out, like the new Zune HD. It's not just a music/ video player, it's also a gaming gadget. Microsoft's sure upping the attacks on the competition -- let's see how they fare in the coming days.
But for this week, I'd have to say, they did a pretty good job holding up to the stress.
