Troll topic. Nothing has been confirmed, so stop talking like it has.

Seriously, unless you live in a remote part of the world...who cares. The only time I don't have an internet connection is if my power is out, in which case I can't use my TV anyway.

If Microsoft really does go this route and mandates online, what happens when Microsoft later releases a new console and eventually shuts down Xbox Live, or releases a new version of it? Will you not be able to play your old games anymore?

There's already been things like this. For example, the original Xbox. Phantasy Star Online. You can't get a gamer tag anymore for the original Xbox LIve service, and PSO requires that gamer tag even for offline mode. So now if your system doesn't already have a gamer tag on it, you can't play PSO offline on the original Xbox.

Will we have more things like this in the future but on a wider scale?

The hope in this (uggghhh) is that as the problems it creates become wide scale demand for solutions will increase with it.

You know, this hasn't happend yet.


Wouldn't be the first time someone has supposed a rumor to be true, like all those "leaked" specs that show the PS4 and 720 as crazy super-powerful.

nintendo was very smart by not suppoting always online drm and no used games, all they will have to do is inform the public about it when the time comes and it wll bring in a lot of gamers, even the ones that werent going to buy a wiiu

Hence why this is a re-assurance topix. Sheesh, at least troll the thing when/if it becomes a reality. Pre-emptive trolling is a non-sensical tactic as far as trolling goes.

You need the trolling to be current, not whimsical fancy. Understand how good trolling works before poorly attempting it.

Otherwise, tada!!! Re-assurance topic.

Let them have their moment. It's not like they have any new Wii U games to play.

There is no such thing as "good" trolling. You could just let the thing die if it turns out to be true. This is getting to be as bad as religions arguing.

It's like walking up to every car in a Sonic parking lot and saying they shouldn't be eating tomatoes on their burger because you don't like it.....why not just go back to enjoying your burger while it's still warm? Stupid analogy I know, but I'm on my weekend and slightly drunk haha
