Director of programming for Xbox Live has Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson has hit a pretty significant milestone recently. He’s almost at one million followers on Xbox One, which is no small feat for any major figure but especially significant for him.

Responding to queries regarding the same on Reddit, Hryb stated that, “My job is to work on cool Xbox features with the incredible men and women on the teams but coming to reddit or tweeting are things that I do because I love what I do and the people and products that build them take that and do with it what you will
..,.,.. (all the periods/punctuation I should have used in this post)”

With regards to his “non-answers” regarding region locked languages and future of Kinect, Hryb said, “I share as much as I am able to share based on the current information. I don’t give specifics unless there are indeed specifics to share as giving out incomplete information it irresponsible.”

Hryb further stated with regards to his job, “I love working with the teams here at Microsoft – and it never feels like work which is kinda awesome.”

    Lol so what was this idiots job before August 2014? Making sure Xbox Live couldn’t support content larger than 2gbs? Forced proprietary memory cards, 512mb memory cards for €49.99 anybody? Or was it console that broke when you looked at it and scratched your discs with its 1998 PC-DVD rom sliding drive?

    I’d say he still can’t get over how much his job changed when they released a console and then eventually stopped absolutely swindling their user base at every chance they could get.

      you sound very bitter over a plastic box.
      i love how people swing the word “forced” around in the gaming community, as if these execs have a gun to your head.
      xbox can cost you nothing just ~~~> just pay it no mind.
