From GameDaily BIZ:
Late today, David Edery informed us that he will be joining Microsoft’s Xbox group. He will fill the role of Worldwide Games Portfolio Planner for Xbox Live Arcade.
David received his MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management. He then went on to be a consultant in the industry and an affiliate of the MIT Comparative Media Studies Program. He has also helped found the Convergence Culture Consortium (C3) at MIT and aided the growth of the CMS program’s game design curriculum.
“Xbox Live Arcade is one of the most exciting things happening in the game industry,” said an enthusiastic Edery exclusively to GameDaily BIZ. “It offers new opportunities to broaden the gaming market, to try out new gameplay (and business) models, and to entertain people. Suffice to say, I can’t wait to join up.”
