    Context: this is Microsoft's creative director debating always-online connectivity for the upcoming newest iteration of the XBox

    Also, their PR department must be facepalming extremely forcefully right now

    UGH. Nothing worse than a person in a position of influence who shits on his constituents. Hope there's some severe reprimanding in store for this one.

    Thank you for that because I had absolutely no idea who that person is. And it's all very well to get indignant about a glib Tweet but isn't paying it attention (and therefore ranting about it) just giving him credence and therefore encouragement to continue spouting hogwash? Most times people say anything, it's just to warrant a reaction... at least that's what I believe anyway...

    mayhem and Aokamidu: It'd be different if this guy was a regular Joe but as a person of rank in a very large corporation he should have the common sense to not dismiss customers' legitimate complaints, if not because being considerate is the right thing to do than at least because people get pissed off and think of the company poorly, and therefore, are more open to switching to a competitor's product.

    I stand very much corrected and do apologise - seems Microsoft have apologised regarding this whole incident: http://www.geekosystem.com/microsoft-twitter-tirade/

    I'm not too well versed in Microsoft's goings-on Xbox wise, nor how the Internet structure is set up in the US.

    Why can't you spell and why are you self-censoring yourself? Plus, this guy is in the Xbox development team, which means his ideas are considered in the development of the console.

    I really doubt Adam Orth is "rich".
