[Update]: Microsoft has provided Game Informer with an official comment by way of its PR firm Edelman regarding Orth's Twitter tirade.

We are aware of the comments made by an employee on Twitter. This person is not a spokesperson for Microsoft, and his personal views are not reflective of those of the company. We have not made any announcements about our product roadmap, and have no further comment on this matter.
[Original Story]: Following the public outcry against yesterday's report that the next Xbox would require an always-on internet connection, Microsoft creative director Adam Orth took to Twitter to dismiss such complaints.
