XBox Entertainment Studios had a short life. It was announced only a year ago, but design decisions led to poor reviews. Among its weaknesses, the software was bloated and slow, and Microsoft not only hobbled it with DDR3 memory but also needlessly restricted the games to using only 6 of the 8 cores.
You're mixing up the XBone and the studios here...

Ah, I was wondering why the author's note had nothing to do with the article.

Yep, the studio they closed is the one that was working on their TV content. This will not affect the games.

A poor attempt to connect the poorly designed console with the shuttering of what was supposed to be a major outlet of content. If the console was as good as it should of been, perhaps the studio would actually have something to do with it.
Ok, all honesty, one too many beers that night.
