    Default M$ Director Pretty Much Confirms Xbox 720 is Always-Online. Sony CEO Responds.



    Adam Orth is a creative director at Microsoft Studios. That places him pretty high up on Microsofts video game chain of command. Not the top, but hes an important guy.

    Anyway, earlier today, Adam took to Twitter to seemingly talk about our report that the next Xbox console will require an always-online internet connection.

    While Microsoft has never publicly acknowledged or referred to this next machine, or that report in particular, Orth nevertheless felt the need to comment personally, telling people as first collated by NeoGAF that I dont get the drama around having an always on console. Every device now is always on. Thats the world we live in.

    What followed wasthis.



    Its very interesting that such a prominent Microsoft Studios employee would comment on something like this at all, let alone get into it with people including game developers over Twitter. While his opinions here are clearly his own, and make no specific mention of a new Microsoft console, itll still turn heads given his position and the timing of the comments.

    Were still weeks or even a couple of months away from the official unveiling of Microsofts next console. Theyve got plenty of time to re-think their plans, refine their message, squash rumours or convince us further that an always-online console is the way to go.

    But that didn't Sony CEO & President, Kazuo Hirai basically owning him :
