Adam Orth, who started a fervor with a series of tweets about an ‘always on’ console has departed from Microsoft. According to Game Informer, Orth resigned, but it is unclear if “whether this was a voluntary or forced resignation.” After the Twitter debacle, Microsoft commented “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.”
It’s probably a safe assumption to infer that he was forced to resign, considering Microsoft had to come out and clean up his mess the next day. It’s probably not good business to tell customers to go fuck themselves and “deal with it.” What do you guys think? Did his comments rub you the wrong way? Let us know!
