Microsoft can take their Xbox One and pound sand!
This is from the horses mouth of Microsoft - if you have no internet then "F" off and/or buy the Xbox 360; however, the idiots at Microsoft will delete Xbox 360 and leave folks hanging dry in the wind!
Xbox boss Don Mattrick, during an interview this week, had an interesting response for gamers who may not be fans of needing an always-on Internet connection.
"Fortunately we have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity, it's called Xbox 360," said Mattrick. "If you have zero access to the internet, that is an offline device."
Mattrick conveniently ignored the millions of gamers out there that may have slow or unstable Internet. The Xbox One requires authentication (phoning home) every 24 hours, even if you are playing in single player mode.
The company recently unveiled a slimmer, new form-factor Xbox 360 and announced hundreds of new games would still be headed to the console in the coming years, making it a perfectly usable platform.
