    ps2 had 56k dial up and broadband. and had many games that used it like Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Twister Metal Black, NFL2k etc... i remember playstation fanboys laughing cause they could use dial up on some games which was in most homes at that time. MS took some heat cause broadband had a while to go before every home had it and thats all xbox used. they said XBL would never reach 1 million users.

    Boy were they wrong! you boys have bad memories not to remember these debates back in 2001- 2002.



    And MS isnt stupid, always on is being blown out of proportion. Some features will be disabled with no connection just like many modern devices.

    wait until May 21st before you just to conclusions. 1 rumor i hope is not true is XBL costing $120 a year.

    i actually enjoy talking about the days when MS jumped into the console race. heard a lot of MS will flop stories. but today they have sold 76 million 360's and 40 million Live Users.

    and now its almost time for the 3rd Xbox. cant wait.

    If you measure success by being outsold by your competitor twice then yeah, awesome.

    I have nothing against Xbox or reason for it to not be good. What little I played I enjoyed.

    I was considering switching to Xbox or possibly getting both, maybe about a year after they've each released. But always on will be a deal breaker. Just can't have games go out in the middle of playing them because of an internet hickup.
