DavidGilbert99 writes "According to anonymous sources, Microsoft's game director Adam Orth has left the company following a series of comments on Twitter about the rumoured always-on aspect of the next generation Xbox console. It is still unclear if Orth left voluntarily or was pushed out but either way it's not good news for Microsoft." If you'd prefer your news without obnoxious auto-playing video ads (with sound!), IGN reports Orth's departure, too.

    Because Sony is somehow better? Removing functionality, backward compatibility, being more expensive, root-kits, etc? How hasn't Sony fucked up in this generation of consoles?

    Sony doesn't make people buy a monthly subscription just to watch Neftlix, which is an important factor for me. I'll probably switch from Xbox to PS for the next generation for that reason alone. It'll save me hundreds of dollars over the life of the console, I can't ignore that huge savings.

    That's the beauty of grace. It makes life not fair.

    Grace isn't grace if it is given only to the gracious. That's merciless justice. Grace goes beyond being merciful and withholding wrath. It is to give one undeserved respect and forgiveness. It is something that the Internet community as a whole has forgotten how to do.

If you can't understand it, it is intuitively obvious.
