Labels comments from Microsoft Studios creative director Orth as 'inappropriate'

Microsoft has labelled comments from Microsoft Studios creative director Adam Orth as 'inappropriate'.

Last week, Orth attacked comments by gamers about the rumoured always-on functionality of the next generation Xbox. "Sorry, I don't get the drama behind having an 'always on' console," he tweeted. "Every device is now 'always on'. That's the world we live in. #dealwithit."

His comments have now resulted in Microsoft having to make an apology to its customers.

"We apologise for the inappropriate comments made by an employee on Twitter yesterday," a statement read. "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."
