Another day, another Xbox-related always-on rumor. But not from Adam Orth.
According to sources to anonymous sources of Game Informer’s, Orth reportedly resigned after causing quite a fuss last week on Twitter. Orth publicly defended the idea of an always-on Xbox console in a manner that read nothing short of elitist, declaring that an always-on world is “the world we live in,” and punctuating his comment with “#dealwithit.”
Not long after Orth’s Twitter comments gained traction online, Microsoft issued the following statement:
“We apologize for the inappropriate comments made by an employee on Twitter yesterday. This person is not a spokesperson for Microsoft, and his personal views do not reflect the customer centric approach we take to our products or how we would communicate directly with our loyal consumers. We are very sorry if this offended anyone, however we have not made any announcements about our product roadmap, and have no further comment on this matter.”
