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 have to say, I'm quite pleased with this. When I get tempted by the new XBox, I'll just think of the always-on requirement (and Microsoft's attitude) and the money will stay in my account. Good result for me ;)
