Keywork99: This guy's a damn idiot. Whether you agree with always online or not, having someone at Microsoft telling their customers to "deal with it" is unacceptable. If I told one of our customers that at my place of employment, my ass would be on the street within the hour.When are people going to learn that if you are employed, you are a representative of the company you are with whether you are clocked in to work or not, and you can't just say stupid crap like this online? Are people that idiotic?Jesus, dude. Just shut up.
ModernLuddite: My argument against online consoles:Sometimes I just don't want to play with others. And I don't want them messaging me. Or calling me and saying "I see you're online, wanna play? Why not?".
China White Tea: The analogy using a vacuum cleaner and electricity is farking idiotic. Most vacuum cleaners strictly require electricity by the nature of the device itself, whereas an always-on internet connection is only a "requirement" by virtue of some asshole exec deciding to make it a requirement.
Kiribub: Well, if by "deal with it" you mean "exercise choice when purchasing a new console" and send my money to a different company? Sure thing.
