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.

I agree with your sentiments; however, as for the PS4, I doubt you'll be able to play any of the older Playstation games until/if they get the Gaikai-style streaming service online.

That is, unless the PS4 is beefy enough to brute force emulate PS1/2 games (perhaps it is?).
