Ex-Xbox Boss 'Lives Like A Saudi Prince'
http://www.businessinsider.com/don-mattrick-zynga-ceo-2013-7

Quote:

His home is the largest in British Columbia, Canada and it's worth $27 million. It has a 10-car garage, and it's filled.

When Laporte asked Mattrick how many cars he owned, he just smiled. She said, "A dozen?" He responded, "Ish." As in, he has a dozen-ish cars. The cars he owns include Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Lotuses.

I'm pretty sure you take your console advises from such people as well.
I care little about it though - if that's the best you can do, that's the best you're going to get.
