Making a third party type of technology mandatory is just stupid. & why would Microsoft make their system DEPENDENT on an internet connection? Dumb

Same here...My sh*t is always connected but I would be pissed if I couldn't play my game b/c my internet is out. I should be able to play the campaign at any point

That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
Paying for a light bill means I shouldn't buy a vaccum.

Living in a rural area means I shouldn't buy a cell phone.

I mean why would anyone live in a rural area anyway?

come on Krazie, stop stanning.

You didn't answer my questions. Those answers would help my understanding.
Your questions are pretty fu*kin vague... To the point where they sound rhetorical.


You're not going to find data for either of them. Either way, you probably should have googled the sh*t instead of asking on a message board.

Some of the few people actively riding for this bullsh*t are on boxden. The Internet is up in arms over this sh*t. It's like free promo for Sony.

So internet users are getting butthurt over rumors of required internet for the nextbox. I mean... this sh*t just doesn't make sense to me. Everyone that is saying something about it most likely has access to the internet 24/7 (apart from outages). Or are you gonna try to tell me that all these people complaining ran over the their friend's house or McDonald's to post their feelings about this.

I've been playing MMOs for a few years. Every time there's an unexpected outage, there are a dozen threads of people getting butthurt that go 100 pages deep. Or when scheduled maintenance goes longer than expected.

There really is more to life than video games. Yes, it sucks but y'all acting like it's the ned of the world if you can't play a game for a hour or so. Read a book. Watch a movie. Take the family/gf out. Fu*king exercise...

Mine too, but I do travel @ times throughout the year. I shouldn't have to buy WiFi hotel service everytime I want to play my Xbox. Hotels having free Wifi isn't a industry standard and you're sharing a signal with the whole building so its weak & unreliable.

What about military deployed? Are they supposed to just leave their Xbox @ home because internet may not be available..?

You're pretty fu*kin naive boy.

Read the angry comments for the plethora of news articles about this sh*t. You'll understand boy.

It's pretty evident Microsoft could re-release the first Xbox and you'd still cop it.

Mostly the entire country has Internet boy.

Some ISP's have data caps, bandwidth caps, high latency, son... The United States is one of the worst rated countries for a reliable Internet connection.

You ever play call of duty online boy? You haven't seen n*ggas laggin with a connection error before? Don't lie to me boy.

Nobody's ready for this sh*t.

Myself? My Xbox is always hard lined to the router. Even then, Comcast does maintenance once in a while.

I just can't tell my boss, "Hey I'm going to be 30 minutes late because Comcast interrupted my gaming session. I'm gonna wait for it come back".

Whatever time is lost with a dropped connection can't simply be won back when you're on other people's clock.

But you don't know sh*t about that boy. You haven't encountered society yet.

These sheep simply don't understand....it's the erosion of consumer rights every time the slaves like you go "oh well" to another feature like this designed to give them more control over how we enjoy our merchandise at home. And you paid for it, you own it....console & game. Xbox Live is a SERVICE on the Xbox console, not the other way around.

Should you not be able to listen to your itunes music you own if you don't get cell service too?

Like I said, I've been playing games with 'always on drm' for years...

 Hovi Bryant said:

Nope. I am no fanboy. I will buy a nextbox and I will buy a PS4.

So again... wtf is the issue...

 Hovi Bryant said:

You don't say... I have had a bandwidth cap for as long as I can remember. None of this has held me down one bit while playing 'always on' games.

You lag on CoD even when you have perfect internet connection...

Most ISPs do their maintenance during off peak hours.

I don't even get what you are getting at here. WTF does the internet going out have to do with being late to work? Are you not allowed to leave your house if the internet is out? And why you playing games first thing when you wake up anyway if you got work?

 Hovi Bryant said:

The only time you are losing is gaming time.

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.
I don't think ur understanding what I'm saying...I would not be good

I don't.plug in and out my ethernet because I have to I do it because i don't want to be connected to live at all times

I'm not stanning, you're the one running rampant with the fanboy sh*t the past few days. The comparison you made was retarded, simple as that.

but they aren't always on...

the rumor is saying that the next xbox (and possibly PS 4) REQUIRE you to be online connected to even play SINGLE PLAYER GAMES...the 360 doesn't require this so those Xbox Live Gold subscriber's aren't essentially already using an d"Always Online" system...whoever wrote this article is an idiot...horrible comparison
When you turned the 360 on, it connects to xbox live as soon as the dashboard comes up. They're 100% always online. I was 100% always online back before I modded my sh*t. AFTER I modded my sh*t was the only time I was purposefully staying off live. If I couldn't get banned with a flashed 360, I would have put the ethernet cable back in, and everytime I turned my 360 on, I would be online.

Anyway, MS aren't going to make the console online only anyway so we're arguing over nothing. Last game system to be 100% online was the PSP Go and that sh*t flopped something serious.
