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.

PC games aren't any worse and they aren't forcing people into locked platforms.

However most PC games you need to be at the computer, most don't work with a controller properly and while you can use things like Xpadder it simply isn't realistic to think that people will do this.

I only know of Darksiders that doesn't work terribly well with a controller unless it's the Xbox Controller for Windows, all the other console-ports that I have work just fine with the Mad Catz - made crappy piece of crap that I have.
