    Adam Orth no longer with Microsoft!!

    He forced MS to reveal some of their cards when they didn't have too. The tension that was rising off of people not knowing what ws true or not I believe was working in MS favor.







    Game Informer has learned from sources close to the matter that Orth is no longer with Microsoft. A call to Microsoft's main switchboard confirmed this fact. Our sources, who wish to remain anonymous, suggest that Orth resigned in the wake of last week's events. We haven't been able to confirm whether this was a voluntary or forced resignation.

    Deal with it! Smug bastard. Good luck finding a job after that stunt you pulled. Will haunt him for the rest of his life. Serves him right.

    Did I miss any important details? It looks like he lost his job just because the internet decided to harass and mock him for his (albeit stupid) opinion. That's not remotely fair or just.

    I guess it was a fun #lunch for Neogaf. lol.
    This guy got ripped to shreds, much like MS will if any of these negative rumours are true.

    Microsoft will be disconnected from the party untill they pony up and reveal.

    His logic was indeed idiotic but it shouldn't have been enough to lose his job.

    I agree to an extent. A few tweets shouldn't have done him in, but to go off in such an antagonistic manner with poor analogies that link a product that has not been officially announced is a no brainer. As a MS employee, he should've known better that his word hold some weight, and then his word became an article for every major gaming website and even made it's way to sites like yahoo.

    Can't take that back. I don't think he should've "resigned", but he should know jest or no jest, what you shouldn't say on the internet. Can't say I'm surprised MS would not want to be associated with him.

    If he was fired then it was well deserved. All of us know that disclosure and reveals in the industry are very important to a comapny's strategy. It's not even that he showed some of MS's cards, but that he did it in such an asshole tone. This guy is such a tool, good job!

    These guys never usually have a hard time finding a job after these things so don't necessarily feel bad for him.
    Kinda fitting. #DealWithIt.

    No longer with MS, as in fired over the weekend, or not having been emploid recently? The whole thing sounds iffy ..

    Besides that, he commented on a rumor surrounding their product. They know what their not supposed to talk about.

    He probably got a juicy severence check though!

    not that simple. when you are on the Internet in his position, you may be viewed as representative to the company. whether or not it's your own opinion is irrelevant at that point.

    Keep in mind, he might have had a history of other write ups or issues as an employee at MS. This might have been strike 3, you are out!

    Kinda feel sorry for him. That is ASSUMING he was actually just trolling with his comments. But I guess someone in his position should just be keeping his mouth shut regardless
