Default Microsoft out of sports game

Good riddance. None of their games were any good.

Microsoft has closed the division that created mainstream-sports games for its Xbox console, laying off 76 employees as a result, a company representative confirmed Friday.

The software giant recently shut down its Sports Game Studio in Redmond, Wash., spokeswoman Molly O'Donnell said. The studio produced first-party team sports titles for the Xbox, including the "NFL Fever" football series, "NBA Inside Drive" basketball and "NHL Rivals" hockey. A separate studio in Utah that develops individual sports games, such as the "Amped" snowboarding title, is not affected by the cuts, she said.

The only one I've ever played was NFL Fever, and it wasn't that great...
