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.

He's right we're always on-line anyway

No "we" are not. In fact, most people on this planet probably aren't.

Why does a game console need to be on-line in order to play a game if you're not playing other players on-line?

One word: control.
