Games More and more evidence is pointing towards the next Xbox requiring an always-on internet connection in order to play any games - i.e., once you lose your connection, you can't play any game at all. Three minutes after losing your connection, "your" game will suspend itself and stop playing. Microsoft's Adam Orth took to Twitter to defend this anti-consumer practice, but he did so in the most ungraceful of ways.

Well, that's a valid point then, I don't own an Xbox and I don't know anything about their up-time. I was assuming 99,999% at least.

Imagine Anon or something DDOSing the servers Xbox720 connects to -> No one can do shit with their consoles. Not. One. Single. Person.

Still sounds like such a good idea?
