1. How many people in here purposely disconnect their system from the internet?

2. When was the last time your internet was out not from non payment? How long was it out?

It's about the choice though. If my sh*t goes down I want to have the choice. What about the people in rural areas? M$ is basically just telling them fu*k you. This kinda makes sense though if they're doing this to combat piracy because it can offset losses to a degree, but to what degree is my question. They don't seem to publish much anymore.
I would want to be able to use my console if, for whatever reason, my internet is down. I understand what Microsoft is doing though. I'm sure they came to this decision at the request of some publishers.

It's about versatility and practicality. Something I don't think you understand all too well right now.

Everyone has had their connection interrupted for whatever reason. That should not interrupt someone's gaming experience, especially if they're playing a game that is single player.

I don't know why this is so hard to grasp.

Where did justify this? I plainly stated that I would like to be able to use my console if I lose my connection, but, from a company standpoint, I can see why they would implement this DRM. You try way too hard and end up coming off extra stupid.

So you think that someone will pay for an online service and then intentionally cut-off their internet? Obviously, the majority of Gold subscribers play multiplayer-focused games and have decent broadband connections.
uh actually i do....as we speak i have a gold membership and my sh*t has not been plugged in for about 2 weeks and i "only" plug it in when i'm playing and then unplug it when i'm done

So, you plug the console in when you're using it? Then "always-on" wouldn't affect you.

That's what I'm saying. If you plug up the internet when you use the console, you won't be affected.

Only if it ends up with them getting some serious, and I mean SERIOUS third party exclusives. COD, GTA. Something that has ridiculous sales every year it drops. Not times, Not first to get DLC, but exclusive as in the buck stops here.

I don't think it'd have to be as drastic as a COD exclusive, especially since it seems that 3rd-party publishers are implementing their own version of "always-on" DRM anyway.

I mostly play single player games when I do play, and if i decide to take my system somewhere like a friend's house, hotel,etc that may not have internet then that console would be a fu*king brick. When I had an Xbox, I didn't even use Live, so to me this is an unnecessary measure. Just a deterrent from me getting anything by Microsoft honestly. If Sony did this I wouldn't want the ps4 either, but think i just saw a thread saying they wouldn't

Well Sony is leaving it up to the publisher to decide if they want to put this in thier games... but IF this rumor is true...MS has it at a system level so EVERY game on the xbox would have this feature...

Paying for Netflix doesn't mean you're always watching a movie on Netflix now...

Paying for Xbox Live doesn't mean you're always playing a game connected to the service.



That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

Aw okay, I didn't understand what you were saying. Well, good thing that the Xbox 720 will come equipped with WiFi so that people don't have to worry about unplugging and plugging in their ethernet cords. In your case, since you have internet, you would be good.
