    Most likely. But until then, Microsoft could potentially lose a lot of money.

    i just got a solid internet connection a few days ago since Jan. the entire purpose of a console is so you can chill on your couch not playing online. if you want online play you go PC. this is a dumb move by microsoft.

    but, take a look at their buyers. kids with parents who will provide all of that. not casual/adult gamers.

    There are plenty of people that play online only games. Like sports or shooting games only.

    That's great and to each their own.

    But there is no way that the majority of any console owner would be fine with required internet activity during any and all gameplay, for the exact reason that Gunny's clip shows. I know some people are only Dunce level intelligent and need to see it in picture form to understand. There you go.

    Alex, you're just upset because the guy said "why would I live there" and your small derp-town pride kicked in for Derp-Towns nationwide.

    Funny considering I love where I live, and it's a bigger city than where you live.

    *******.


    Now continue to whine like a ***** about where you live while doing nothing about for the next 5 years. That's what losers do.

    as usual you miss the point there Mr. 'disgruntled in Tennessee but not doing anything about it but ***** and complain'

    the MS executive has a point, but it comes across badly in print. He would not live in those places because his career would be underappreciated. His compensation would be greatly reduced if he could find employment at all. I suspect he would have too turn too meth production on the WW scale too continue his current lifestyle.

    The real point is that people in rural areas like to play XBox. But in certain rural areas internet connection can be poor (slow) or spotty.

    So I guess XBox is not catering to people in rural areas.

    That is a huge business mistake. But it is no surprise that Dunce wouldn't see that.

    Microsoft is getting greedy b/c they are losing money on new game sales b/c practically rveryone buys then used now (aside from the most popular games) but it's going to bite them in the ass. I'll just stick with my 360 if that's the game they want to play. The vast majority of gamers are very upset by this. I wouldn't be surprised to see Microsoft cave.

    MS will come too understand this

    I'm just not going to upgrade....

    Not because of this, but because there is not a single problem with my 360, and the jump in processing power and graphics can't be as huge as they were in the past.
