Gamerscore Blog Team Let Go As Part Of Microsoft LayoffsS

Sorry to keep hitting you with these bad news stories. Maybe things will get happier next week. But today, things are bleak, with news now that Microsoft's Gamerscore blog team have been laid off.

We heard last week that the blog had been shut down, but there was always the chance that was simply part of a public relations realignment, and the team would be relocated and put to work on something else. Turns out, no, as part of Microsoft's mass layoffs the entire crew are now out of a job.

The news comes from the Twitter account of former GamerScore boss Chris Paladino, where there's a saddening play-by-play of the day's events.
