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.

It doesn't matter what Microsoft does. Most gamers are so used to bending over that they'll go where the games are, no matter how hard they get something shoved up an orifice in the process. I wonder if there'll ever be a breaking point when these people pull their head away from their console and go: what the hell? Maybe when they have to pay in blood to play their precious games, but until then they're perfectly willing to get gang raped by both large game producers and game console makers.
