 I ain't saying it's right. But you're saying "always on" don't mean nothing, and I'm saying it does.  And when the internet gets a burr up it's ass about something  you don't give it a target to focus on, cause the internet will throw them into a glass motherfarking house.You know it,farking Marsellus knew it, and Adam Orth should have farking better known better.

r00tdenied: Burr: js34603: So the always online feature is being removed?

What's that? They just fired some random guy no one had heard of until he opened his stupid social media hole? And the always online thing is going forward anyway?

Nice job, good effort.

There is no confirmation about the function even existing in the first place,  just rumors and speculation.

Of course, rumor and speculation is the lifeblood of the internet.

Actually. . .about that MS announced it in their own press release.  Media outlets picked up on it.  The rage spread and Sony basically came out and said 'Yea good thing WE'RE not doing that'.  Maybe the outrage will cause MS to change this 'feature' but I doubt it.

"So he's been let go, then?"

"No, we fixed the glitch. He'll no longer receive a paycheck, so things will just work themselves out naturally."

This should have been all the lesson that Orth needed.

But of course too soon are the lessons of the past forgotten.

I would be pissed if the next Xbox doesn't have an always on requirement.  People need to move into the farking twenty-first century.  And if that means you can't get an xbox until you lobby your crappy po-dunk town council for municipal broadband, so farking be it.

Unless, of course, you live somewhere like North Carolina where municipal broadband is illegal because it steps on the toes of Time Warner.  Then tell Microsoft to pick a fight with Time Warner and grab some popcorn.

Fired for expressing what many in places like Seattle believe. I'll play apologist kinda.

A bunch of us came from places like Janesville WI and Blacksburgh, VA, and got an education and left. Or found a town where they were hiring and left. Or just had enough of our inbred hometown bullsh*t and left. Made something of ourselves once we got here, competed with our brains instead of our birth certificates, and have done well in the thriving economies of Left Coast big cities. And take pride in what we've accomplished.

With pride comes arrogance, sometimes, unfortunately.

But its one thing to spout crap into anonymous forums, quite another to head up a consumer gaming group. Bad fight to pick, Orthy. You still need to sell sh*t to them. Stop telling them how a lot of us really think.

On the bright side, now you can sit all day and tweet out how much the midwest and appalachia sucks.
