Xbox’s Major Nelson is leaving Microsoft after 22 years

Larry Hryb, better known by his Xbox live gamertag Major Nelson, has today (14 July) announced that he’s leaving Microsoft after 22 years with the company. 

Hryb originally joined Microsoft in early 2001, intiially as the editor-in-chief for MSN Music, but two years later he moved across to the company’s Xbox division and quickly found himself becoming one of the public faces of the growing console brand, becoming inseparable from the brand in the early 00s and 10s, where his image and Xbox’s were largely inseparable.
