That is the world we live in" - Adam Orth Microsoft creative director. “Did you learn nothing from Diablo III or SimCity? You know some people’s internet goes out right?” Heir tweeted back. “Electricity goes out too,” replied Orth, prompting Heir to point out that not everyone lives in well-connected areas. “Try living in Janesville, WI or Blacksburg, VA,” tweeted Heir. “Why on earth would I live there?” Orth responded. Not a big deal? Well I've actually been on the fence about whether to go PS4 or the new XBox, but this made my decision for me. I was actually considering buying both as well. Due to where my console is, internet connection can be spotty at times. It's mostly fine but occasionally there are interruptions. The only guaranteed fix has been to drag a wire across my house and plug in directly to the console. Obviously I don't want to do this. So I won't even be able to play a single player game on new XBox without being constantly connected to the internet. This is all in an effort to kill the used games industry. MSFT is screwing the pooch on this one.
