Just incredible. Adam Orth, aka "Sweet Billy", a creative director at Microsoft Studios, decided to comment about the always-online rumors of the upcoming NextBox/Durango. Warning: Spoilers inside! Ever since his twitter feed went public (which is now locked), this news has basically spread all across the Internet. Not only that, but another confirmed developer had his own comment: "Given that legally I cannot confirm or deny if this information is true, nor can I comment on rumor or speculation, all I can say is be sure to pay your ISP bills." So that pretty much confirms that Microsoft's next console will require a constant online connection. NEOGAF I've literally been watching this entire thing derail for the last few hours, and it's fucking hilarious.
