Microsoft "Responds" to Adam Orth's 'Deal With It' Twitter Comments

Microsoft has heard all the discontent spurned from the tweets of its Game Studios Creative Director Adam Orth, and finally decided to to step up and set the record clear.

Actually, not really. It's the same non-response they've been making about most every rumor that's come up for their fabled new console. The company's PR firm issued the following statement to GI International:

"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."

Way to help clarify things guys...

No, he's not an official spokesman for Microsoft, but when he states his job title on his "personal" Twitter account (still blocked from everyone but subscribers, by the way), he's a representative of the company, official or not.

Nice to know Microsoft doesn't mind employing such a representative and his overall arrogance directed at the same group of people the company is trying to sell a product to. Maybe it was all a really poor attempt at humor, but if Microsoft keeps up this kind of attitude, and the "always online" concept, Sony will wind up getting the last laugh.
