Microsoft might have realized the always-on Xbox 720 is more trouble than it’s worth

The backlash around the always-on DRM rumors for the Xbox 720 has snowballed. Adam Orth, now famous for his poor Twitter judgement, is no longer with Microsoft. While this is the consequence of poorly thought-out social media usage, could this be an opportunity for Microsoft to pull the emergency brake on its own poorly thought-out idea?

LOl your making it look like everyone in the gaming community gives any shits about what happens here on n4g.

Most casuals have lives, most xbox buyers are casuals
.
As for the Hardcore Xbox players, they been always tuned on what happens to the nextbox and they just can easily spread the word as these stupid sony fanboys that have been plastering BS about the nextbox.

damage; undone!

The reason why people believe it is because Microsoft are being total scumbags all around. so people Expected it I've been with Xbox since Sega leftI even bought my Halo game before I was even able to find a xbox counsel. and what I will say is that over the years From personal experience and experiences of my close friends. Microsoft shown long time customers less and less respect so I expect anything from them I have about maybe 60 arcade games and off line I can probably play about 20 on my Xbox360 Without online connectivity.the games go in to trail mode even with Achievements All my friends moved on to the PlayStation I'm the only one stuck with Xbox and it didn't pay off . i only keep it now because all the money i invested in xbla & because of Nike fitness training
But come next generation I will be Headed over to Sony that I thought would never happen

How about putting a gag order on all these NewBox articles that are flooding N4G like diarrhea on a hot summers day until it's actually is announced.

I'm so sick of the " supposed " cableBOX that I don't even want too hear it about.

Why have your manties in a bunch when you haven't even seen OR tried them on.

Know you know how we feel about the over obssed ps4 articles hughging n4g

As far as I know I haven't posted " sick of PS4 " articles.

But honestly it's getting old. Everyone knows regardless of what each system offers they're buying either both or one or the other.

If everyone knows what they are getting based on what they have this current generation, why didn't Sony have PS2-like domination over Xbox 360 all over again? Why didn't Nintendo's sales stay in the gutter? Every generation is a new ball of wax and consumers must be convinced that they are getting their money's worth.

As an impartial gamer I hope the rumors on the new Xbox are not true. If they are, personally I have no interest in supporting that. It's hard to tell how the features would fly with the target audience (which clearly doesn't mean all 360 users)... it seems clear that a majority of core gamers are against the rumored features pretty strongly, even many 360 gamers. I think it would have some appeal as a do it all console, I just don't know to what extent. Nor do I know what to expect in terms of focus on gaming, which is the only thing that matters to me with these consoles. The 720 reveal should be very interesting.
