"Rumor: Xbox 720 always-online false, is backwards compatible"-Gamesradar

Having BC is just not gonna be possible for both PS4 and 720. Their architectures are too different from their predecessor, therefore it won't happen.

Beside, it's becoming harder and harder for a system to play all previous games. It's like people expect that when the PS9 released, that it's gonna be able to play PS1 to PS8 games.

I think it was already hard enough for PS3 to play both PS1 and PS2 games and now people expect them to play PS1, PS2 and PS3 and expect Microsoft to play Xbox, Xbox 360 games.

Sorry, at some points, it's just not possible to keep BC anymore.

Trying to contain the chaos is futile.

You're apologizing way too much for Micro$$$oft.

But all the dead last place Sony fans said the opposite! Who to believe?!

Lol damage control. Just face it. The 720 will be always-online and because of this Microsoft has handed Sony an easy win.


And if it had no drop of truth to it "at all". Then that Orth idiot wouldn't have been so adamant and arrogant on Twitter, then when he couldn't handle the reaction, he retreats like a coward by setting his page on private, and if that wasn't enough, loses his job soon after!
Wonderful career choices, Orth.

Even Cliff B. made fun of him:

You'll have made a fool of yourself when NextboX isn't always online.

Soon.
Very soon. :)

No, always hated the PS brand controller.
If NextboX is always online required I won't be getting it either.

If either of these rumors prove to be true, they lose me as a customer.

Not enough games worth playing on ps3 to give up Xbox360.
