The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft laying off 76, cuts production of own Xbox games

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft laying off 76, cuts production of own Xbox games "In the latest adjustment to its Xbox business, Microsoft is closing its sports video-game studio in Redmond and laying off 76 employees.
The cut is the division's largest single layoff since Microsoft launched Xbox in 2001, but it has shed hundreds of games jobs over the past year.
A Microsoft spokeswoman said the company no longer has to make as many Xbox games itself, now that the console has support from the games industry."
