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.

We have a TV and an Xbox in the camper. We don't connect it to the Internet when we play and sometimes we use the Xbox at places where there isn't even mobile service available.


Absolutely... I've connected various game consoles to the ceiling-mounted screen's inputs in our car plenty of times so the kids can play some games during long trips.

Gamecube, N64, PS2 are good for that - clearly the next generation Xbox is not.
