So basically if you have Comcast internet it will be unusable. Terrific.

Time to get a good working PC for a better price!

This is just clever marketing. They wont be making constant connection a requirement, but they spreading a rumor that they will put it in. So once they announce it and reveal they wont, it'll make them seem like they are doing something considerate for us.
Its like rumors that it'll cost $1,200, but a reveal of $800 makes it seem cheap.

Both devs for the ps4 and new xbox just went full retard with the 						****					 it's being rumored.

I think it would be great if the new consoles required an internet connection, because that only supports us pirates. Think of how many people will join us!

The 720 would be virtually unplayable for me. Active duty Navy so I live on my ship (this next month and a half excluded since I'm going to a school currently before reporting to my next ship) And when I was on deployment, almost every night there would be a couple consoles on the mess decks ad hoc'ing or system linking or just split screening games. My shop had a system link network set up with four other spaces on the ship, more than one tv per space. We had full team games of Halo, Gears, Call of Duty and such. WE even got computers into it for some Warhammer Dawn of War but that's not relevant to the situation.

tl;dr Can't use the new console on my ship or on deployment

It's just a rumor for now. Nobody has confirmed or denied it.
#77 to #73 - Neodude (04/10/2013) [-]
The not denying it is the problem, as it means it is a consideration.

There was a dude here from 3M not too long ago and he's working on a patent involving smart post-its. IDK what the **** you would do with a talking post-it note or whatever it does, but other than that he couldn't say ANYTHING about it. Untill everything is all hammered out behind the curtains, nobody can say anything about any aspect of the thing other than that it exists or is in development.

My internet turns off constantly, i will not be buying the new xbox if this is the case since i am already stressed enough with the current one.

That match was so hype.

I'm sooooooo glad to see someone using that for something. It was AMAZING!
User avatar #53 - snipys ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
That was just the employee trolling. Even if they were going to do it, after he was pretty much crucified on the internet, there is no way they will still do it.
User avatar #62 to #53 - spectacledbear (04/10/2013) [-]
And the Kinect is crucified almost all of the time by the internet yet they still focus on that more than anything.
User avatar #105 to #62 - snipys ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
The Kinect is pretty awesome. I never remember it getting anything bad. People just say bad things because they are unwilling to try it.
User avatar #75 to #62 - nevrit (04/10/2013) [-]
I say your statement is bs. Some games are made strictly for it and some games have additives if you have it. It is not focused majoridly on it however.

I have loved Xbox for years, I remember playing Conker on the original, and Fable TLC and Morrowind. I have had a 360 for years, playing Borderlands, Halo and all the other **** .

But so help me god, if the **** in THIS article is true...
I will never buy one. If I can't play my 360 games on it, they can go **** themselves, if it's always online, go **** yourself even further, I'll get a PS4 and keep my damn 360, pricks.
User avatar #61 to #47 - oostiethomp (04/10/2013) [-]
The PS4 cant play PS3 games either. What the **** are they thinking? I know the 360s limits are being pushed here but that is really all that needs to be improved on or changed
User avatar #65 to #61 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
I don't own a PS3, so it makes no difference to me.
I will keep my 360 and all the games and get a PS4 if that ***** true. Why would they use older ******* hardware, and make it online only?

As a kid, I used to think of Bill Gates like an idol, like a ******* god among men (I was a weird kid.) but that is diminishing quickly.
User avatar #67 to #65 - lolollo (04/10/2013) [-]
Get angry at microsoft for coming out with a new console that doesn't play the old games.

Solution: Buy the COMPETITOR'S console that ALSO won't play the old games.

I's seeing some flaws in your logic...
User avatar #68 to #67 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
Wheres the illogical thing there?
I own many Xbox games that I wouldn't be able to play on the new Xbox, but no old PS3 games because I don't have a PS3. And It's not just the lack of backward compatibly, it's the online only **** , which would be more than frustrating because my internet sucks.

If there is no online only **** , I'd probably get the new xbox and keep my old one, but if I can play all my old games and theres no online **** , I'll sell the old console and get the new one. It's the online only thing that kills it, not the lack of backward compatibility.
User avatar #71 to #68 - lolollo (04/10/2013) [-]
Then again, you also make the point that it's the "constant online" bit that's killing it, though my other question is what makes the possibility of just refusing to buy into the new consoles whatsoever so out of the question. I'm perfectly happy with my 360, as it sounds like you are with yours. You can just ignore these new releases like I fully intend to.

Remember that business only goes as far as the consumer revenue.
User avatar #76 to #71 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
Because theres various games on them that I want to play and many future games yet to be announced will likely be on them? I am happy with my 360, but, one day, Borderlands 3 will arrive, likely on a PS4 or Xbox 720.

And theres no ******* principle involved, I just don't want to have to deal with being constantly kicked out of my games because my internet is an abomination. Who the **** cares if I get a PS4? I'd mostly prefer backwards compatibility, I don't completely need it since I can simply keep my 360. Sony can do whatever the **** they please with the backward compatibility, it makes no difference to me, but it makes at least some with the 720, because I own a 360.
User avatar #78 to #76 - lolollo (04/10/2013) [-]
It just seems to me that if you're going to make such a big deal over the state of the new console features that maybe you can entertain the possibility of not buying into it at all. If it pisses you off, give the companys the middle fibger and don't get the product. Settling will just tell them it's OK to do that **** as long as they're not "as bas as the competition".
User avatar #85 to #78 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
Right, because the company will listen and care about one person not buying the damn console.

For ***** sake, why do you care if I buy it? Why do you give any hint of a **** ? One is better than the other and I choose the better option, the one that is less of a pain in the ass for me personally, not the ******* masses. I don't care if the backwards compatibility is a problem for anyone else on the PS4, because it doesn't apply to me, but it applies to me on the Xbox. The PS4 isn't online only as far as we know, the Xbox might be. Until such times as we know it's not online only, I lean toward the PS4. And how the **** am I making a big deal? If I'm spending as much money as I would be, I'd prefer to not be ****** over with online only **** , and the PS4 won't be ******* me over, but the 720 might.
User avatar #86 to #85 - lolollo (04/10/2013) [-]
No, but if everyone uses that justification to go out and buy a new thing just because it's new, then you end up just adding to the problem. Personally, I don't really care if you go out and buy one of the new consoles. Hell, if you're rich enough, you can buy both. I'm just trying to point out that there's a simple solution to all of the butthurt you seem to have over what microsoft intends to do with the new xbox. Just don't buy into it. It's what a lot of people did with Nintendo and, while they don't seem to have slowed down much, they received quite a bit of flack for their shenanigans.

Yu remember how popular the Wii-u was when it came out?

Yeah, me neither...
User avatar #89 to #86 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
I'm not buying it because it's new, thats ******* retarded, I'm buying it because I wish to do so, Watch Dogs looks badass, Deep Down looks ******* incredible, Fallout 4 and Borderlands 3 will likely be next gen and they are 2 of my favourite series, along with the next Elder Scrolls and Fable game (If that ever exists). It's not that I want the console for being new, it's my love for the series I've loved for years.

I'm more frustrated about the fact that, like I said, as a kid I looked up to Bill Gates and thought Microsoft was badass in general and they are starting to get worse and worse, killing any respect I once had, it's like watching Batman kill someone.
User avatar #92 to #89 - lolollo (04/10/2013) [-]
That's how I felt about the Pokemon franchize. I fully understand loyalty. It's why I'm still ging to get AC4 despite people telling me it's going to be terribad. I like the Assassins Creed series. But nintendo kept getting ridiculous with how they were releasing their handheld devices, even to the point where it wasn't worth it anymore. I highly doubt the 720 or PS4 are going to be that bad, and even if they were, solving it is as simple as just not spending the money.

Plus, you know, since neither console is going to allow backwards compatibility, until those first games come out it's not worth spending the money anyway. Nintendo, again, learned that the hard way.
User avatar #98 to #92 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
Yeah, I might delay a bit until, say, Deep Down comes out or Watch Dogs (2 that as stated I am looking forward to.) But still, the not spending money solution only goes so far until, also stated, Borderlands 3. Me and my friend have played probably hundreds of hours of both games (We never got a pearlescent weapon in the first one despite killing Crawmerax well over a hundred times. ****** .) and would sooner die than pass up Borderlands 3. And I've never been a big fan of Nintendo, if at all.

And that said, I think the new Assassins Creed looks badass. I'm curious to see what happens with Desmond and the new guy, who looks like a combination of Ezio and Connor, the idea of dual wield and more guns (That ************ had 4 guns in the trailer, ******** .) is appealing and it's pirates and pirates are badass.
User avatar #106 to #98 - lolollo (04/10/2013) [-]
That's what I'm sayen! But nobody else seems to think so...
User avatar #70 to #68 - lolollo (04/10/2013) [-]
The illogical part is you're complaining about how Microsoft is doing this "big evil thing" by making their new console only play games made specifically for the new console, yet your solution for this is to run to the other console which is just going to do the same damn thing.

It begs the question on whether or not it truly is about the principle behind making new consoles backwards compatible.
