Lee will report to Nancy Tellem, who is Microsoft's Entertainment and Digital Media President. Lee will help out with the Xbox One's dreams of becoming every homes entertainment hub. Microsoft are also working on getting other content firms to create exclusive material for their next-gen console, with a brief explanation of what they want to achieve quoted below:

Secondly, Microsoft has real work ahead of it at the E3 event: it must prove to gamers that even though Xbox is growing up, the company hasn't forgotten about its core constituency.
