and head of the entire operation are two separate things so your saying MS had lionhead and budget in 2016 then LOL
You said he had to start from scratch. He didn't. He inherited the very same set of studios he was directly in charge of for years.
He is literally solely responsible for the state of Xbox game studios from top to bottom. He was General Manager of Xbox game studios in 2008. He is responsible for the first party situation that Xbox has found themselves in this generation, nobody else.
He also inherited a marketing and comms team, along with a hardware team etc, etc. He didn't walk into an empty office with a cheque book and have to start everything from scratch.
Either you can't read or you're being purposefully obtuse.
