SonyRumors CeraJoy looks at the problems that come with having a 'always on' console. From lag to degraded gameplay, she discusses why this strategy will end up hurting gamers on any console.
I have had it......
Here We GO! http://i.minus.com/ibwI1puh... anything else?? :D
*On last level* *That happens* *Jaw drops to floor* *Gets paper cuts and pours alchohol on self* *Smashes Xbox 720 with a jigsaw, Xbox 360, & chainsaw* *Commits suicide in front of MS* *Story ends up on N4G* "Man Commits Suicide From 'Always On' Xbox"
just found this but but this part in between the jaw drop and the paper cut *face reaction* http://s3-ec.buzzfed.com/st...
sad part is that fanboys would still support it
Nah, journalists would wrongfully blame the suicide on vide.. oh, looks like this is the first time it can be blamed on videogames. What will the journalists do now?!
It turns everyone off. Why would anyone want an always online console? To run up the bill on purpose?
a man gets it. "turns everyone off" cause it's always on lol
always on is a great move, is the future
If always on is the future of gaming, then that is a future you can most definitely count me out of. Bottom line is that my nerdy gaming hobby will never be something i want to become a more social (network) experience. friends lists are awesome. sharing gameplay footage is great too. but always connected? thats just so unneccesary on so many levels.
They just wanna do this to force everyone to pay for xbox live, there just won't be a choice next gen.
You always have a choice, just don't buy the console if you don't agree with what MS are doing. They will soon get the message
Always online policy is only applicable in North america or Europe. But in other Asian countries, it flops.. Goodluck selling that Xbox720 on those countries. I'm pretty sure sony will dominate lol.
720 - ALWAYS ONLINE Microsoft - "You will need to be online to play any SP games. Oh and you need XBL GOLD to be able to go online. Oh yeah Microsoft I see what you are doing now. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Microsoft please leave the gaming industry.
Their absence could only benefit the industry.
hey now they gave us the achievement and I get trophies all the time. They also gave us 2 weapon limits and regenerating health in shooters though...
I recently had a major upgrade to my internet connection so im not really worried about getting DC with any service. But the connection i had before is used by the majority of people in this country and i had a ton of issues with it. If i had a console that obligated me to connect to an online network then with my old connection i would get DC a ton of times. And getting DC means loosing the ability to play single player games which in my opinion seems absurd to me. @ufo8mycat "Oh and you need XBL GOLD to be able to go online. " LOL i can imagine the desperate fanboys making claims that paying for gold to gain access to their games will somehow make the experience of the game better. Then the PS fanboys will just point and laugh while saying " Well with PSN we dont have to pay anything to play multiplayer or singleplayer in our games"
Forcing everyone to pay for their internet again is the most insane business model in history. Microsoft's gaming division is dead and buried on arrival.
