Always On Xbox Seemingly Confirmed..

Well, that was quick. Adam Orth, a creative director at Microsoft Studios, has taken to Twitter and seemingly confirmed the existence of an always on Xbox. He isn’t at the very top of the food chain at Microsoft,  but definitely high enough to know what’s going on. Anyway, read his tweets in the pics below and decide for yourself. This may be an example of the hubris that some developers have been privy to in the last few months.

      I feel like his attitude represents Microsoft’s towards this issue, which is disconcerting. The PS4 may dominate the next-gen for this decision only.

    I don’t know after reading his responses. For being a big wig at Microsoft, I think he’d be in deep water if he even responded to the rumors. I don’t see this as a confirmation, just a Microsoft employee trolling people on Twitter.

    I think he was just trolling. He later said that his lunch break was over and that it was an interesting one. So no, he was just having a bit of fun. And he was just saying what he thinks about it. He doesn’t think the ‘always on’ is a bad idea. So what? Freedom of speech.

    Also, this might have just been a publicity stunt which seemed to work because now everyone on the internet is talking about this.

      I agree, and for the record, I don’t think the always online thing is a problem All of my devices are like that anyway. The problem is Latin America has grown into a huge market, and their internet infrastructure is horrible. There are also areas in the U.S. that don’t have broadband and they could be leaving a huge market behind which Sony can pick up, just by virtue of the fact you don’t have to register your games online to play them. It’s going to be interesting to see where this is going.
