Adam Orth Deletes His LinkedIn Profile

adam orth xbox 720 killer

You may have already heard of Adam Orth by now. He is (or was) the “Creative Director at Microsoft Studios” that caused controversy on his twitter comments about the always online Xbox 720 rumor. He’s now deleted his LinkedIn profile.

If you click on his LinkedIn profile page now, it comes with a “profile not found” message. I was looking at his LinkedIn profile just a few days ago. This could mean that Orth may have been fired from his position at Microsoft.

Before the profile was deleted, it showed that Orth worked on several video games in the past. He’s worked on several Twisted Metal games just to name a few before taking a position at Microsoft Studios last year.

Orth’s twitter account is still active (although private) but still says he’s the “Creative Director at Microsoft Studios”.

It’s still not confirmed if Orth has been fired from Microsoft yet, but it’s likely the company is punishing him in some form of fashion. He alone pretty much ruined the reputation of Microsoft and the Xbox 720 console with his offensive tweets last week.

    Adam Orth’s defense of always-on doesn’t even make sense. I wrote about his asinine remarks here, and break down why they’re wrong:

    Microsoft better wise up. Its losing the PR battle against Sony before it’s even announced the next Xbox.

    Justice has been served. While many called for his removal in a blatantly spiteful way, from a company perspective, he has placed MS in a precarious situation when they announce whether or not the next Xbox will be online-required.

    Doesn’t matter if it was a joking remark or not. It was a bad one for me.
    He should think more before making comments like that.

    Congratulations, you morons have wasted time and energy on nothing.

    Why not focus this energy on …I dunno maybe something positive?

    Like dropping a few pounds and moving out of your parents basement.
