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.

You can play the campaign of SC2 without an internet-connection. However, you need to activate the game once, and then validate your copy every 30 days.

You can play it and it's nice, but that will keep you happy for just a few days and also I believe you don't get the bonus portraits for your character if you play offline. Anyway, SC2 is about the multiplayer, singleplayer gets stale fast.
