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.

If it's true the new XBox requires an always-on Internet connection I assume they did a study and know how many do and how many don't have this.

For the record I think it's bad idea, but if Microsoft goes ahead they probably figure they can do without the farmers.
