Xbox 720 and Adam Orth: How to Stop Loving and Start Worrying About the Next Generation

"Orth completely discounted that both smartphones and even the current consoles benefit from doing things completely offline though." (Next-Gen, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

I'm not worried about PS4. I'm worried about Microsofts next gen console "based on rumors."

Any game (not MP only, w/ the exception of BF4 because I only play the MP) or system that forces you to be online will NOT be making it's way into my home. As long as everyone follows suit and doesn't just "deal with it" the concept will be driven back to the gates of hell.

I agree,

But unfortunately if the uneducated casuals have taught us anything it's that they're more than willing to bend over when they buy over priced DLC and Online passes.

If every gamer was like me and you the industry would probably be a much friendlier place for gamers. As it stands now I won't be surprised if the casuals enable the industry to go backwards.

If the next gen Xbox rumors are false I'd be much happier and would look forward to it as long as Kinect isn't the "main focus." I'm not going to diss either console including the new Xbox based on rumors and because they both have their respected gamers. So I'm happy for both consoles can't wait for both of them and hope they both do well:)

I think MS will make Kinect the primary focus because of how much money Kinect brought MS this generation. It sucks because Kinect has killed my interest in gaming on my 360, and downright ruined Rare. I mostly play games on my PC nowadays on my 12 Gig, 256 GB SSD,I7 970, GTX 670 monster rig. I will probably buy both true next gen consoles for the exclusives and the ability to play from the comforts of my couch on my 60 inch 3D plasma.

Your internet goes down or microsoft severs go down you can not use you xbox 720 at all no single player no apps

Lets wait and see, then vote with our wallets as necessary.

All this huffing and puffing about rumours is pointless and probably overblown.

The bigger question, for me at least is, are MS going to release any new IP and top notch exclusives... Or are they going down the route of Gears, Halo, Fable, Forza, paying for timed exclusivity and focusing on Kinect as they ended up doing with the 360.

Deal with it
It doesn't matter what Microsoft does with the 720 because in the end owners of the next Xbox will just deal with it.

I really bet this guy wish he had kept his mouth shut instead of being an elitist. You would think that common sense would tell him not to open his stupid mouth like this, but just wow.

Also keep in mind that if always online becomes a reality for 720, look forward to alot of games not focusing on single player aspects but more online focused since it will only make more sense if your willing to buy an always online console especially from microsoft. I fear the worst for those who buy one especially if these rumors do end up legit which certainly looks that way.

Ill still get the Xbox for multiplayer and ps4 for single player,I tend to play more mp though with halo bf gears I left cod awhile back but am lookin forward to ghost and destiny is looking promising,I'm thinking ms might pull a diablo 3 move like ps did by bring elder scrolls online to pc and the next Xbox only.

Really appreciate the article's title, OMG thank you.

I have yet to hear ANYTHING good about the Nextbox yet I hear nothing but praise for the PS4, from western AND eastern devs alike. Come on now. Some of those rumors HAVE to be true.
