The 'Deal With It' Effect

"There's been so much speculation in the gaming world surrounding this whole Adam Orth/"always on" debacle that I'm sure most of us have forgotten that North Korea wants to nuke the United States off of the globe. Are gamers over reacting to what is still a rumor? " (Microsoft, Xbox One)

Could we please stop using that PR bullshit 'Always On 'terms and use the true term which is 'Online Only'?

Thank you.

Okay as I was dreading looking at another video for 10 seconds before disliking it, and then clicking back. I was surprised when the urge didn't come! This guy is hilarious! You guys must see this remind me of that Pilipino lady on youtube happyslip, (in a manlyway) too funny! And oh yeah he is right. PS I will use the Online-Only or OO (not a Pilipino, Tagalog language joke) once it is confirmed. Because I think Microsoft is test marketing the Idea. And I always take my consoles when I go on a business trip, or vacation and I'm not paying either. And right now most people will tell you that Comcast still caps you but do it by slowing you down instead of stopping you. That would cause problems playing online games. I've had it happen to me even though I have there highest rated internet.

I agree with this guy I like bananas and Microsoft/I also know quite a bit bout both. A banana can give you your daily dose of potassium and vitamin A,C,And E.Microsoft isn't dumb enough to release a internet dependent console. Look at everybody Waltzing around like they know Microsoft's plans inside and out just because some nobody sates one small detail HE DIDN'T EVEN SAY THE WORKS xbox 720 or Durango or next box or xbox omega or whatever your calling this console no one other than Microsoft workers can honestly say exists. And in the very unlikely case that THEY DO release a internet dependent console they can easily fix The PROBLEM with a firmware update,

if someone calls you a pedophile you deny it. somone says your console is online only you deny it prettty simple and easy thing to do. or you one of the retards who thinks denying something is harmful in these situations? dont see how denying it can hurt. if its not the truth then deny it. If it is the truth then stay silent. stop freaking playing games and respond M$. you F'ing cowards. none of my friends are buying an x720 at this point all M$ had to say was no xbox720 isnt online only but they didnt because they are dumb.

I think the reason for this is because they don't want to confirm the existence of a new console quite yet.

I wouldn't want to buy a console that hasn't been announced and shown off yet either.

But with a name like yours, my "friends" wouldn't want to buy an "x720" either.

When they finally get around to showing something, I'm sure they will comment in regards to the supposed requirement for online only. Your precious PS4 will require online for Watch Dogs and few other games as well by the way.

Microsoft isn't about tog o out and announce their console just because a bunch of rumors are pressuring them.It would make them seem weak

Why would Microsoft do this? well, I'm still considering getting Durango btw I enjoy my xbox 360 more than my

inb4 Sony is the most hated company when they released PS3 with Cell and with a price tag of 599.

And now MS, even though they have developer friendly machine, this Always-online policy will drag them into fall down.
Most of the gamers around the globe still plays offline or single player. They enjoy it even though they don't have DSL connections or Broadband. Single player offline already satisfies them.
