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.

Valid point. Wasn't the play station network taken down by hackers for like 3 months or something only a couple years ago?

When it came back they reset everyone's password and I ended up creating another account and losing a couple cheap games (like Salt Shooter) I had associated to my old account.
