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
pretty much

this is def. not a deal breaker for me

only thing im worried about is BC

no BC then gaming PC it is

dont fu*k me M$
always online is a definite deal brealker for me especially when I have an alternative that bypasses it completely (ps4) my gripe with it is you don't it the game if its DRM basically when M$ stops supporting the system the games and your investment goes down the toilet theres no way and hell my library would be anything pass 5 or 10 games if i got this thing if that

THIS IS A TERRIBLE IDEA DONT DO IT M$

Since you're so smart, please highlight the post where I said his stupid comparison didn't make sense? Just because his comparison is stupid, doesn't mean it doesn't make sense.

Since you're so smart, why don't you ask the other people in this thread that felt the same way I did about his stupid comparison? I wasn't the only who saw it as stupid.

That all carried over from OG Xbox Live to the 360s service didn't it? I play under a gamertag now, but I still have my OG Xbox gamertag from the first day Xbox live came out


sh*t I st ill got my MSN Email and handle from when Microsofts FIRST online videogame service(The Zone) popped off back in the mid 90s....got damn im old

Just because you're a Netflix member, it doesn't mean you need to watch movies or tv shows 24/7.. Just like if you own a game console, it doesn't mean you need to play games 24/7.

Stupid is as stupid does, and that was a stupid fu*king comment. Anyone backing it is just as stupid.

Simple as that. Does your remedial brain understand the simple concept now?

what bothers me the most is there will be no more lan gaming, which is something that i still do, have people come to your house and play a Halo campaign or Gears... What about sport games? Whats the use of having more than 1 controller if your friends cant join you its not jus about single player campaign games... I might quit gaming if thats the case, im not letting any1 FORCE me to be online for every single game, im still a traditional gamer, i like playing games wit people under 1 roof and talk sh*t while we playing thats fun, if they take that away i'll be forced to look for another hobby

I dont know how anyone can think its ok to be forced to pay for internet just to play a game that they like. People still play on none hd tvs so im pretty sure people still may not have internet.

I'm smart enough to not need outside help to strengthen my beliefs..not sure how something can make sense BUt also be the dumbest thing ever..you folks exaggerate for effect and that's stupid..something females do

calm down your anger and try explaining again cuz that made zero sense in relation to what that dude is trying to say

edit: better yet,don't even worry about it cuz you've already proved you only know how to attempt to get your point across thru anger and it aint that serious to me..if it's online then it's online and I'll let yall have the cow for me

My internet connection aint the greatest, and i never leave my xbox ethernet cable in when im not playing online or updating the system. I cant afford bandwith being sucked away from anything im streaming or downloading on my laptop @ the time (im generally listening to music, or listening/watching a tv show while playing games).

So, Xbox would definitely lose a custy here.


U hear that MICROSOFT!? You're losing a CUSTOMER!

(somebody make sure microsoft gets that)

Only problem I have is that I just use my neighbor's wifi and the connection ain't that strong and I drop a lot. Not trying to shell out another 50 bucks a month just to play some games

1. You can have xbox live and not be connected. I don't always have my xbox plugged into my router or laptop.

2. What if you purchased xbox live at a time where you had the internet, but now you don't, or you moved?

3. My sample size is small, but rarely anyone that I know in the hood, the REAL hood, has the internet. THey don't play online, they play with whomever is in the house. It's the damn trap, somebody is always in the house.

I don't anything to be always on. Everything in my house, except my fridge, is on a timer. Modem, computers, etc... all cut off 30 minutes after I leave for work. They cut back on an hour before I usually return home.

I pay for online service and intentionally turn it off all the time. So the answer to your question is yes
You intentionally call your internet service provider, cancel your service (and possibly pay an ETF) "all the time?" Wow. I guess if you have the money to be dumb, more power to you. Cause I hope you didn't think I meant who turns off their router/wireless connection.
