And who is to say that Microsoft wasn't seriously considering forcing an always On-line connection...but is just judging the reaction to the rumors...and their refusal to acknowledge or answer the rumors is just their way of keeping their options open....so that if they generate too much negative buzz & publicity, then they can always claim that the rumors are untrue, when they are just trying to play both sides of the fence in reality


WHAT?! A company listening to what consumers want?! M$ is so evil and slippery!!


^ I'm not saying that they are "listening to what the consumers want"...but trying to gauge consumer acceptance/backlash.
What they do is purely for selfish and monetary gain.
If they feel that forcing an always On-line connection will be ultimately beneficial to them in the long-run...then that's what they will do.
But if they decide that there will be an enormous enough back-lash that ultimately hurts them negatively, then they will abandon the idea and claim that it was ..."just a rumor"...
Like I said, they are not approaching this with any type of honor or dignity, but with arrogance, selfishness, and tom-foolery.

A company that is honorable will flat out deny or confirm rumors.
A shady company will keep their agenda & motives hidden by not answering them.
It gives them wiggle room and plausible deniability.

With the amount of stuff you're pulling out of your ass, shawnmck. I doubt anyone would want to kiss it.

Again OP is intentionally misquoting the article like he usually does.

Only a moron reads that and comes away saying it "must always be online". It says it's always online. Durrrrrr. Guess what else is always online? PS3 and 360. Wii was too (remember Wii Connect?).

Bravo.

Thanks for the laugh. You're right, you shouldn't close your account...your particular brand of posting is quite amusing...you're fun to laugh at. OFTEN.


Agreed. I needed a good laugh to pick me up this morning. Thanks, Shawn!

Awesome. Except it's not always online. It'as "always connected" which was a tagline for the 360 too.

I'm calling it right now...on March 19, 2013....
The Next X-Box will require an always On-line connection...but Microsoft will offer cheap XBL or even a free 6-months to sweeten the deal.
Maybe even throw in a free game (digital down-load only)...

And if I'm wrong, then I will eat crow and apologize publicly....and admit that I was wrong.


How about closing your account if you're wrong?


^ Sorry...because even if I'm wrong about this, I've still been right more often than not, and my success rate would still be higher than Michael Pachter.....
Do you expect him (Pachter) to quit his job for being so wrong ?

And besides...if being wrong were grounds for closing accounts, then yours should have been shut-sown long ago.
You hypocrite.


This isn't your job.

People also said the ps4 was going to have always online and no used games...

its like people genuinely want consoles to have bad features considering how gullible they are about rumors
