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.

Well, I just pulled Malaysia out of the air as an example, but for the most part my point still stands: Many markets won't support USD $20 for a Blu-Ray.

I also certainly didn't imply that it's a good idea for consumers (Which is what I think you are implying), but it is a good idea for Microsoft.
