MF: Zynga's Gain Is Microsoft's Pain.

Rob Note:
I think this article is good for a laugh. Who the heck is writing this kind of article?
Posted so you guys get a view of how the mainstream financial press is covering gaming.
"It could be a game changer. Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA) has a new chief at the helm and it could lead to a paradigm shift in the gaming market. Zynga snatched gaming veteran Don Mattrick from Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), and in doing so, it breathed new life into a stock that has been on life support for months.
The details are scant, but are expected to surface by the end of the month when Zynga's second-quarter results are revealed.

For Microsoft, itís a loss, especially considering the company's recent push into gaming. It's all smiles over at Zynga, where the company is showing a united front."

I don't know whether this will be good for Zynga, since I'm not sure how much Mattrick might have improved Xbox over what would have happened naturally. Kinect was pretty successful and might not have happened without him, but there wasn't enough done with it and it was kind of a missed opportunity. His control of the Xbox One announcement was definitely baffling.

I hope it's going to be the same scenario like with SGI.
