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.

The problem is the *your* -> *their* shift.

I'm not leasing it, I buying it (well, let's suppose I will). Being owner of an hardware platform that can be useless at will, voluntary or not, from the seller, noway.

Microsoft should shift to lease their console. At least that would make then sense.
