Re: Microsoft Creative Director on AlwaysOnline: "Deal With

It would seem that my link to the article isn't working.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/

Just look to the right and you'll see a sidebar that says "Features." Then, click on "Would Microsoft be Foolish to Make the Next Xbox Always Online? The Stats Suggest Yes." If it isn't in that sidebar (say, you're accessing this months later), click on "View all features" and search for the feature on the list.

Hey, that works... and it's one of the most well thought out and interesting articles I've read from anyone who's on the Microsoft side of things. ^^

Of course, going out of your way to create an expensive, anger-inducing fix that will do jack squat to solve the problem is a time-honored American tradition... nyeh, oh well. XD

I liked that article. It's written on an Xbox fan site, and it explains why always on is NOT a good idea. The author is not blindingly defending Microsoft.

That guy got fired by Microsoft so it was not Microsoft's message to people.

I really doubt that's why he got fired (though I thought he "quit"?). I'm sure that is their message if Always On is a thing. They just didn't want him expressing it in that way.

He was forced to resign, rather. We all know how this stuff works.

I thought I read somewhere where Microsoft finally said something about the rumors. I'll need to find them again to see if it's true.

Edit: nvm, it's rumors about it not having the always online feature.

Microsoft noting the outcry and hastily deciding to redesign things and remove that requirement, maybe...

He got fired because he made an ass of himself as an employee of his company. ANY company would have done the same.

Trust me, he was fired, lol.
