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.

but Sony didn’t remove Linux from your already installed device, they just stopped updating the firmware that had the support.

The problem was quite obviously the fact that you couldn't play any newer games that required updated firmware unless you gave up on Linux-support. That was a real dick move considering the fact that many people bought PS3 for BOTH playing games AND for Linux.
