Yesterday Microsoft Studio’s Creative Director, Adam Orth Tweeted for quite a long period of time, complaining on how users have yet to accept “always on” connectivity, stating the following:

“Sorry, I don’t get the drama around having and “always on” console” telling readers to deal with it.

Which obviously led to some rumors that the company make the next Xbox an “always on” console, but with no official news, it was all speculation.

However we at least now have a statement from Microsoft detailing what they have to say about the Tweets.


“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.”


So there’s still no confirmation on whether or not the Xbox will have an always on connection, but you can bet that if it’s going to happen it’s going to be forced onto you.
