Xbox One Does Require Internet Connection, Can't Play Offline Forever

The Xbox One doesn't have to be online all the time, but it does have to be online. Not just once in a while—once a day, according to Microsoft vice president Phil Harrison.

In a Q&A on their press site for the new Xbox, Microsoft tackles the always-on question with a strangely-worded answer: "No, it does not have to be always connected, but Xbox One does require a connection to the Internet."

The story is too old to be commented.

I was honestly excited but after seeing all the stupid rumors become true, I don't think anyone is even trying to defend the X1 anymore.

Off Topic

Whats with people getting done for harshly for trolling and off topic comments when they arn't. Seriously thats ridiculous, you can't be a mod/admin, be a Xbox fanboy and get so p***** off that you would hide peoples comments

the admins have been relentless during the xbox reveal i tried to submit a legit article about the new info revealed after the show but it was instantly failed by an admin claiming it was "old" but at the time the xbox reveal literally finished 10 minutes ago and there were no duplicates how on earth he can claim its old i will never know. i looked on his profile and he failed somewhere around 25-30 xbox one article and approved 4. the 4 he did approve had something positive about the xbox one. this all happened like 10 minutes after the conference
