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 understand the difference. I just don't think it is as much of a problem as you think it is.

Also I was actually replying to people saying Microsoft will simply turn off support when the xbox 4 comes out.
