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.

This is another reason to avoid gaming consoles, and support DRM free gaming and distributors, like GOG, Desura and etc. who have a principal DRM free stance.


Be sure to check GOG's sales this weekend: 10 D&D RPGs for $20! ;)

I actually have voiced my wish for them to add that something like a year ago already. And I'm still hoping to see Homeworld and its sequel on GOG one day ;)
