Microsoft has issued a formal apology over the comments of one of its creative directors, Adam Orth, about always-on internet connections for consoles. Here is the Official Statement as published on Major Nelson

“We apologize for the inappropriate comments made by an employee on Twitter yesterday. This person is not a spokesperson for Microsoft, and his personal views do not reflect the customer centric approach we take to our products or how we would communicate directly with our loyal consumers.  We are very sorry if this offended anyone, however we have not made any announcements about our product roadmap, and have no further comment on this matter.”

Some good info on the Next XBOX …

Possibly Updated 360 for $99.00 – This is awesome news if it’s true.
