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.

How long will a person be able to play video games on the next version of the Xbox? How long will Microsoft keep the servers for it running? Five years? Ten years? All websites eventually go down.

Considering you can still go to windows update and update a fresh windows 98 installation ... I think for a while yet.
