Earlier rumors suggested that the Xbox 720 could be an “always on” device, meaning that gamers will need an internet connection to play any game. This helps to prevent piracy, but issues from games like Diablo 3 and SimCity have proven the feature to be not worth it.
Microsoft’s creative director Adam Orth may have just confirmed the feature himself while ranting on Twitter. He did not actually come right out and say it, but he took to Twitter with a barrage of tweets that basically seemed defensively hostile toward Xbox fans, defending the need for an always-on device.
He talked about how all of our appliances require electricity, but that shouldn’t stop people from buying vacuums and wanted to know why so many people are making such a big fuss. One responder mentioned that where he lives the connection is not reliable and Orth asked “why on earth would I live there?” The whole thing seems rather juvenile, like a child throwing a tantrum.
