Next Xbox will NOT require Internet connection - Confirmed by Internal Microsoft Memo
 

 
visit this link Next Xbox will not require Internet connection - Report - GameSpot.com

Numerous reports have claimed Microsoft's next Xbox will require an Internet connection to function, but these a.ssertions are false, according to an internal Microsoft memo obtained by Ars Technica.

"Durango is designed to deliver the future of entertainment while engineered to be tolerant of today's Internet," reads a line from the memo, reportedly sent to all full-time staffers working on the next Xbox.

"There are a number of scenarios that our users expect to work without an Internet connection, and those should 'just work' regardless of their current connection status," it goes on. "Those include, but are not limited to: playing a Blu-ray disc, watching live TV, and yes playing a single-player game."

It is not clear when the memo was sent to developers. A Microsoft representative told GameSpot, "We're excited to share more about the new generation of games, TV, and entertainment on May 21, but have nothing further to share at this time."

Most recently, noted Windows blogger Paul Thurrott claimed the Xbox 720 will require an Internet connection to function, but suggested that the feature "isn't as Draconian as many seem to believe."

Microsoft is widely believed to formally unveil its next Xbox during an intimate event at the company's headquarters in Redmond, Washington on May 21.

This announcement will "mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV, and entertainment." The event will be streamed through Xbox.com, Xbox Live, and Spike TV in the United States and Canada.


Now you sheeple can stfu arguing about this sh-t. We all knew no company was stupid enough to do this. Maybe in 10 more years when bandwidth is cheaper, till then find something new to hate on the nextbox about. image

none of the Sony Ponies will even come in here to comment. And this wasn't some bullsh*t "trusted source" by some unknown site. If Ars Technica says they got it from an internal document then I believe them. Any company would be a fool to make that requirement in this day and age knowing how sh*tty internet still is for most of the world.

Just because they say "report" at the end doesn't mean this is confirmed. Until Microsoft comes out and says ANYTHING about the console, it's a rumor.

So your gonna compare "Anonymous sources speaking to Kotaku" to an "Internal Microsoft memo obtained by Ars Technica?"




Even you cant be that dumb.







Or can you?

They're extremely self-conscious and have inferiority complexes so need to compensate by trying to talk up their video game system in order to feel better about themselves.

This comes from sources of very complex scientific studies.

I don't care who received what "intel." Until Microsoft actually comes out and says it to us themselves, it's a rumor.

Whatever u say Jizzy. This "intel" supersedes whatever sony stanning report you pull out of your a.ss. So when M$ does come out and reveal this to the trolling public like you, remember u knew the truth weeks before.
