So wait, the new XBox is going to be "always online" and you won't be able to play your games if they aren't connected to the Internet?
So what happens when the XBox 4 comes out and Live is discontinued for XBox 3?? You won't be able to play your XBox 3 games ever again? How is this a good idea???
I don't know about you, but I think this is the stupidest idea I've ever heard of. What a HUUUGE waste of money. "Oh I spent hundreds of dollars on games for my XBox 3, but now they're just a bunch of drink coasters because XBox Live has been discontinued for it."
I wouldn't be surprised if they actually do this, though. I've already noticed that certain of my 360 games, if they have an update for them, don't play offline until you install the update from Live. I find it extremely annoying.
