I won't sold over 20 millions LTD if they required online
It won't only kick out customers can't online/don't wanna online,it will also kick out people who even 99.9% of the time can/would connect the console to the internet,because they always think about that 0.1% possibility.mind games.

Also if i'm mattrick/ballmer i will fire this guy,no matter how nice is he
Zero tolerate for me like this,he just basically ruined MS's plan

I don't even see the advantage for MS with a required connection.

It won't affect me since my connection has been very solid the past 4 years and everything in my house is always on from the day I buy it anyway. But I do know that this might be a problem for 50% of the market. So, why do you risk 50% of your market?



Imagine not having GamePass on your console...

I don't think it will be that bad tbh even if they go this route..I'm guessing IF they are gonna do it they will do it with some other 'incentives' to entice the core gamer crowd....time will tell

 

speaking of time...this was fast

For those who don't know..this is a persona of his of sorts...don't take it seriously 

ps: make sure to check out the ending even if you skip through the rest of the vid

The rumor that the NeXBox will be a subscription based cable box seems more and more true when you think about it.

Not a bad idea in itself, as this is certainly where the industry is heading down the line. But with the internet in its current form, it will leave a lot of people out. It seems to me that Microsoft will focus their energy on the markets that are already pro-Xbox. Like the UK and the US. If they play their cards well, they may end up keeping those locked away from Sony once again. 

Still, I'm not too thrilled by this if it turns out to be true. I like to be given a choice. And while the infrastructure of Live is very good, having to pay my console for as long as I want to use it, and the potential that it will be rendered completely unusable once its generation has run its course really bothers me. I like to go back to my older consoles from time to time. But if the NexBox works like that, I don't think I'll be able to use it in 10 years. Like I do with my older consoles.

That's different,it will have subscription but doesn't mean it won't have normal models.

I will note that David Jaffe defended this guy on gaf and twitter. Sounds like a good/ok guy who just had a brain fart or a venting session or something that didn't expect it to blow up so much

"Knowing Adam, he was probably fucking around with M. But I've not spoken with him- he MAY believe that, he may have just been kidding. I honestly have zero idea about that part. But I honestly hope he doesn't get fired for it. I know so many of you guys who are opposed to 'online only' don't care (and that is certainly your right) but this is a real human we are talking about with a family and trust me when I say that he's one of the good ones. You may disagree with him about this issue (assuming he really meant what he wrote- and yes, that was his responsibility to be aware of how stuff reads on Twitter and how hungry folks are for news about next-gen, especially from someone with his job title) but I assure you guys: if you knew the guy, you'd be feeling really bad for him right now and really all works out great for him.

Not asking you to change your mind or anything- just giving my perspective on it.

Thanks for reading-

David"

Was that posted on Twitter or over Neo? because i cant seem to find it anywere.



They will be second place for sure now

they are crazy for this

cant even turn on your game system to play a game anymore.. you have to be "connected" to play it...


This is pretty much the moment of truth. This is the time where Xbox fans should bitch at M$ to make sure that they drop this wack ass idea before E3 arrives

I'm glad Nintendo and Sony aren't doing this dumb sh!t
