Suppose there's one positive to take from all this - Twitter isn't just a breeding ground for soppy b*****ks talking about what a wicked night out they had.

I knew MS was going to get a mop and try to clean this up, but its too late, its all over the web and the damage has been done. Adam Orth does represent the company, since he works for MS, and the topic of the tweet was about speculation of a feature that the companys new product might carry. You can't cover that up, only the gullible believe crap like this........(xbox fans) :P :lol:

For those who don't visit Eurogamer, I take no credit for any of these, they're just too goddamn funny.

Good to hear Microsoft finally doing something to get in front of all this negative press. If they were planning 'always on' this should give them a strong clue about how bad an idea that is!

Orth was unavailable for a comment as he had a dental appointment.

Why don't MS just come out & say the X720 doesn't need a always online connection ?

Cause when they do that they officially announce it exists, which will take the media buzz away from when they actually do. I know its silly seeing as we all know it does exist, but there is a lot of reasons why they cant say that.
