The Challenges Facing an ‘Always-On’ Console

It’s been a hot topic of discussion since early March, when rumours surfaced that the new Xbox, often referred to as the “Xbox 720,” would feature an “always-on” system requiring gamers to have an internet connection in order to play. Nothing perpetuated the probability of an always-on system until Adam Orth, Microsoft Studios Creative Director, tweeted: “I don’t get the drama around having an “always on” console” earlier this month. (Industry, Next-Gen, PS4, Xbox One)

Sony ISP rolled out their 2gb Internet for $51 a month in Japan.
