In one of the weirdest turn of events in gaming, Don Mattrick left Microsoft today to head Zynga as its new CEO. Strange he just up and left after completely reversing the Xbox One policies not two weeks ago. Who knew Zynga still had money to throw around?

Other than that (on this fine first day of July), PSN is having amazing summer deals and keeping the PlayStation Plus train rolling, Final Fantasy XIV hit 1 million beta registrations, The Walking Dead: 400 Days suddenly has a release date set for this week, and many more awesome things happened on 7/1/2013.
