Adam Orth, Microsoft Studio's Creative Director last week took to Twitter to suggest that people upset by rumours that the next Xbox would require an always-on Internet connection should just "deal with it" and move on. Now it seems like it's him that's moved on.
Reports around the internet suggest that Orth has now left his role at Microsoft. It's not clear if he was pushed or left of his own freewill. It's a shame really, as all he was doing was giving his personal opinion. But it seems the internet can't handle people having an opinion, so yet another talented person moves on.
The next Xbox is expected to be announced soon. Whether or not it includes an online connection or not remains to be seen.
