Staff at Microsoft game studios given their marching orders

Microsoft Game Studios Lays Off Staff
It is being reported - and confirmed by Tweets from those involved - that Microsoft Game Studios is making people redundant right now.

Tweets such as this one, "I got laid off today at Microsoft and our KickStarter for #habitat just launched. Help me fund my dream :)" from Elbert Perez, a Technical Producer at Microsoft Studios leave little to the imagination.

Nor does, "I got laid off from Microsoft Studios today... I... I'm free? I'M FREEEEEEE!" from Patrick Loughman, formerly an Artist at Microsoft Studios.

This news comes shortly after Phil Spencer was put in overall charge of all things Xbox at Microsoft. Whether not it's just these two vociferous staffers who were laid off is unclear.
