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, it allows one to charge a higher price in regions that can afford higher prices. Example: $20 for a movie in the US, and only $5 for the same movie in Malaysia.

I know what you want to say - but, in the future, perhaps you should keep in mind that relative pricing (in the US vs impoverished places) of luxury goods is too often the other way around.
