Forums - Gaming Discussion - So are Xbox/PS now basically unusable without a paid online account? [EDIT: Resolved]

EDIT: False alarm, it would appear I was the victim of misinformation. Thanks for the clarification RedKing.

Original post: I could be mistaken here, but don't these systems now demand a PSN/XBL account just to be able to download games or updates/patches?

If yes, this would unfortunately mean I will never again be able to buy a Playstation or Xbox console, as I refuse to ever endorse paid online.

Apparently, no and no.

Ah, it would seem I have been misinformed then. Phew. Okay, nice that the option's still open. 

I will lock this for you :)
