J Allard to quit Microsoft

A high-profile member of the original Xbox executive team is quitting Microsoft under acrimonious circumstances, a news report claims.

J Allard has in recent years been synonymous with the Xbox 360 brand, fronting his unique corporate persona in interviews and press conferences as Microsoft launched its flagship home console.

Recently, Allard has been conspicuously absent at Microsoft – making no public appearances and undertaking no interviews since the release of Zune HD last year.
