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.

Just one more reason not top buy their corporate crap. I PC game exclusively, and guess what? Not missing anything:

Dolphin= every wii game (Mario Kart, new super Mario Bros)
N64 emu (Dr Mario, super Mario 64)
snes emu (super Mario world, mortal Kombat 2)
Ps2 emu
Psx emu
Civilization2 (funnest version)
Urban terror
Gta San andreas
More.....

All in high def. All using a real wiimote + blue tooth. No disks, cartridges,online fees, and actually no fees art all!

I look at people throwing money away on consoles like they are literally insane.

Your point? (Or did you just want to brag about how much pirating you do?)

Using emulators is not the same as pirating.
