Would Microsoft be Foolish to Make the Next Xbox Always Online? The Stats Suggest Yes

X360A: We hunted down some stats to prove why an always-online console is such a terrible idea. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

I'd say out of the big 3, Microsoft would be the most likely candidate to implement an "Always Online" DRM system in their future products. However, I think given how viral this situation has become and how much it can negatively impact the Next Xbox, I just do not see Microsoft going forward with this idea.

Sounds great loose your internet and loose your games. Then in 10 years when the system is dumped it is a big paper weight. I still play my Genesis and Dreamcast why should I buy a system with a shelf life.
