Adam Orth, Microsoft Game Studios creative director, has aired his views on the always-on internet connected requirements rumoured to be in the next Xbox console.
Taking to Twitter during the night Adam had a fair rant on the matter.
While not confirming anything on the matter, having such a high up Microsoft developer actively defend the matter gives more fuel to the fire that the rumours could well be true.
Nikolai Mohilchock, the senior game designer at The Workshop, also shared his opinion:
"Given that legally I cannot confirm or deny if this information is true, nor can I comment on rumor or speculation, all I can say is be sure to pay your ISP bills. ;)"
