This week's Jmquisition speaks in length about Microsoft's rumored "Always Online" Xbox 720 and how bad of an Idea it would be.

He brings up many interesting and intelligent points. I don't always agree with him but he really drove this week's topic home.

Never heard of this guy.
First thought: The thumbnail makes him look like Penn of Penn and Teller.
Final thoughts: I don't really like that kind of video format, but you're right, he did bring up a lot of good points, some I haven't heard before and he seems to know what he's talking about, unlike the idiots on YouTube that do absolutely no research.

Wow, for so long I thought I would never hate an online personality more than angry joe, and well, I was right. But this guy is a close second. Even though I agree with most everything he said, he is still just begging for a falcon punch to the dong.

Again though, he's spot on just about everything, except consoles aren't going anywhere.
