Microsoft has hired UK TV personality Jonathan Ross (@Wossy) to work on Xbox. Ross will work with a number of Xbox teams in the UK, acting as a Microsoft Studios executive producer.
The news was revealed last night at an Xbox One event in London, where Phil Harrison said the presenter was bought on board to “change our thinking”.
Ross has previous experience with the games industry. As well as being a big fan and a semi-regular presence at gaming launch events, Ross has also produced his own game, an iOS title called Catcha Catcha Aliens. You can also see footage from the Xbox One launch on Ross' Vine account.
Phil Harrison continued to praise Ross by mentioning that he "knows more about movies and Japanese manga than any person I have ever come across and I include a bunch of people in Japan I used to work with. What do you think about the announcement? Let us know in the comments below.
