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

All you have to do is use your phone as a hotspot n*gga. C'mon son.

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

Stop it fam. I don't use my mobile devices as a hotspot. When I did it sucked. My job paid for free hotspot on sprint. The connection was always terrible.

It is very dumb to have always on be a mandatory feature to play games. Some places you still can't even get good internet connectivity still. We are still far behind as country. This is a stupid idea for consoles.

Wait. so if the new Xbox is always online that obviously means XBL will be a free service on next gen?

No way they make you pay 60 dollars a year on top of purchasing the console and the games, to actually play the games.

Dumbest thread ever. OP please understand the article before making such idiotic posts.

I hope Xbox720 fails hard, otherwise the next, next PS will follow suite and make this a permanent fixture.

My internet is slow as fu*k, I haven't been online on a game for about 3 years because of how bad it is, why the fu*k would I want to buy a console which requires my garbage internet to always be on?

I've always had an xbox... If this is the case I'm not going with the new console. Guess Sony finally won my dead presidents.

lol these arguments are silly. for the record, I have a 360 and XBL Gold, and it automatically logs you in when you turn it on. Whether its a 1 player game, a DVD, watching a movie file via USB... itll be online.

I understand you want choice. You have a choice. Get a PS4.

The PRICE is my main concern with both systems.

Jago you know exactly what that dude is saying and he is right. Forcing you to always be online is a bad idea. Yeah im connected 24/7/365 until comcast stops working which happens quite often. My SimCity connection goes down alot but i can still play. On the next xbox if your connection goes down you have 3 minutes until you get booted thats it. They can't even get a game to work on day 1 without server issues yet how are they gonna pull this off without it being a pain in the the a.ss. And I dont just mean microsoft when i say they can't get online games to work without server issues day 1, that goes for everybody. Yes i am always online but i am always online because i CHOOSE to be onlline. not because my gaming device of choice forces me. Will i still buy one? probably, as long as the rest of the features are top notch but if not this may very well sway me to PS4 or continued gaming on the pc.

It's never gonna get anywhere because there are 2 different things being argued.

There are the Xbox supporters and they say "it's 2013, you're always online anyway,if you Internet goes out "go get pus*y" Etc etc

Then all who oppose say "yes, i'm always online..even now but I shouldn't be forced and the situation will not always be ideal for this"

Basically one group is arguing that you are realistically online all the time anyway and the other is arguing from a place of principle.. This entire thread there hasn't been a middle ground and there won't be until the reveal. My big problem with it is that it doesn't benefit the consumer at all but its just something we are supposed to deal with. If I have the option to have a choice as opposed to having to be always online then of course I'm choosing the option route. I think a lot of people will follow in that line of thinking.

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.
The main thing that's getting argued is "Wait until the facts are actually revealed before jumping to conclusions" and "OMGZZZZZZZ this is most definitely a fact, fu*k the nextbox, always online is dumb!!@@!!@!!"

Obviously always online is a disaster waiting to happen for a number of reasons. It's not going to affect my buying decision because I'll get both regardless, but I'd rather it's not there. The hardcore arguing is just annoying at this point considering nobody knows 100% of the facts about the PS4 or ANY of the facts about the 720 yet.

It's nothing but an elementary school playground argument at this point, where everyone acts like they know everything, when they don't know sh*t yet.

You act like any of us want to be right about this sh*t

I'll be happy as fu*k if the Xbox is functional off line.

But when there's smoke, there's a fire and when this is coming from developers and senior staff at Microsoft...you in denial boy.

In denial about what? I've never said it will or will not be totally offline. I'm not like you idiots that are ready to make a.ssumptions one way or the other until it's out in the open from Microsoft themselves.

You are quickly becoming the new coolio of the PS3 fanboys, except you're not funny.
