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.

Sadly enough the stereotype does to some degree describe a large part of the young gamer demographic whose parents buy their kids gaming systems to serve as the babysitter. I don't think that large demographic cares about the details behind their shiny new consoles.
