I'm just gonna wait till an official word is made because I hate all this speculation. But I do agree this a be d!ck move by M$ to not give users the option of playing offline. I don't play alot of MP so this kinda sucks if true.

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.
If you don't have an HDTV by now, buying an Xbox 720 or PS4 should be the least of your worries.

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.
No offense but you have some comprehension issues. Took me like 4 posts till you understood what I was saying and now you interpret what he said to something completely different

No offense but you seem to be the one with comprehension issues now. That guy was responding to my question about people disconnecting their Internet service. He mistook that as me asking about people disconnecting their ethernet or wireless connection. So here, both of you comprehension issues.

Disconnecting your internet service IS disconnecting your ethernet or wireless connection. I believe the term you are wanting is canceling your internet service.

I got your point and pointed out a flaw in it.

It could actually be either, considering that when most companies send you an overdue bill invoice, it's called a disconnect notice. You might want to look up what the word disconnect means.

It was an example. Not everybody who owns a 360 owns an hdtv. Notice that when you buy a 360 it doesn't come with an hdmi cable. My whole point was if someone doesn't own an hdtv then it is possible they don't have internet. That was my whole point. There is no flaw in that because it's an observation.

Yes, but within the context that you are using the term disconnect, it has nothing to do with an overdue bill. Besides, where I'm from it is called cut off notice.Just keep digging yourself a whole. You are only making yourself look even more dumb than what I first thought.

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
don't be stupid, who logs OFF of Live to play single player? No one. Get a grip. The majority of people are always "on".

There's been a few people just in this thread who said they do what you're talking about...i'm not being stupid...and they aren't "Always On" if their internet goes out they can play Single player games...they can use their systems...if this is true and their internet goes out they have a $500 paperweight...

What in the world does the fact that an Xbox doesn't come with an HDMI cord have to do with anything?

That has nothing to do with people not having HDTV's and everything to do with Microsoft being cheap. The Elites used to come with composite and HDMI cables. The Slims only come with composite cables as of now.

The fact of the matter is, your analogy was pretty dumb. If you don't have an HDTV in 2013, an Xbox 720 or PS4 should be the last thing on your mind.

And I'm a.ssuming you've never heard someone make a reference to "disconnecting their phone" or "disconnecting their cable" or any other subscription service in relation to no longer keeping said service. You should really get out of the house more.

Yea guy, you really have me "digging a hole." Good job.

Edit: Where I'm from, it's "disconnect notice" but I have enough commonsense to know that a "disconnect notice" is similar to a "cut off notice." So yea, you should really get out more.

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?
Just 2 month ago I couldn't connect to Xbox live because Microsoft had an outdated token that prevent Xbox live and other Microsoft service to connect with uverse. Then there is the undependable internet service that goes down. Then there is the yearly holiday Xbox live outage.

So out of 77million 360's sold, 46 million people have Live accounts.

What are people arguing here, of course always online is stupid. Look at the numbers above.

Ayo, Xbox stans I got you covered on this dumbass post right here.

Stop with the excuses. It's not like you're gonna lag playing Skyrim.

why would anybody go through that trouble to play a single player game like GTA?

you really forgot that majority of the country's technologic intellect aint there.

and to your hotspot bullsh*t, theres deadzones or towers go down during hurricanes b.
