Dear Microsoft: Giving the next Xbox an always online requirement might be suicidal

The stunning decline in PC shipments reported by IDC this week shows that Microsoft (MSFT) is really on the ropes in the consumer electronics market. What makes IDC’s report particularly cringe-worthy for Microsoft is that it pins some of the blame for poor PC sales on the drastic changes that Microsoft made to its Windows operating system with Windows 8.

Last week journalist and fans were all over MS's back over that statement by that MS employee. A week later new positive rumors start to surface. In a "damage control fashion."

Yeah that guy literally put the icing on the cake with the rumors. But he did everyone a favor and, somewhat "forced MS hand." Lol if anybody can get MS to "talk" its their own employees.

Don't worry. This isn't the 7th time I've seen an article like this.

I know. Its the 10th

Much more than that. But I'm waiting for number 23 before I make a real comment.

Not another one of these articles -_-. We get like 40 of these daily yet there's still people who think they have something to contribute to the discussion. I think it's obvious by now why a DRM console is unpopular with customers.

Oh, we're back to this rumor already?

Were we ever off it?

I guess not, but seeing how there was a small influx of clarifying the online rumors that said that the system would allow games to be played offline i would think more of those types of rumor articles would surface.

Wow. Cgoodno squashed another Xbox not always online article but he's got no problem letting all of these samey articles based on the always online rumor go through.
This will get marked for trolling or off topic but whatever, I need to ask; why is vgleaks being deemed not credible in the new rumor instance but they've been allowed to post 3 other next xbox rumors/specs? Even Kotaku used them as one of their sources and yet their article hasn't been failed by Cgoodno.
I took the liberty of checking his comment history and its pretty clear which console he favors so all this shouldn't be a suprise.

Still, this is bull**** and I don't mind being banned pointing it out. Cgoodno, we'd like an explanation.

If I do get banned, it's been fun gang.
