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.

Sony went downhill from Yaroze.

Yaroze had complete hardware access.

Not strictly complete - Yaroze games had no access to the CD-ROM drive, they had to all fit in (small) RAM after the initial loading.

Plus, Net Yaroze was a quite rare gear, different from ordinary consoles... only very few of Yaroze games were made available to the masses via Playstation Magazine disks.
