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.

Yeah, people who live in areas with really spotty mobile coverage usually don't get mobile phones. Imagine that. Most people also don't vacuum their house nearly as often as they play games so it's not a problem if the power occasionally goes out. Also, comparing electrical power to always-on internet is just moronic beyond belief.

Goddamn city slickers.
