It never did this before and totally kills cpu vs cpu games. So stupid.

I think it is a console setting doing that...not the game...check your sleep or standby settings.

It never used to do not before. I haven't changed any settings either. The controller itself doesn't turn off, but it would pause of not touched anyway after a few mins.

Yes. Definitely changed. I used to be able to start a cpu vs cpu game and then turn the controller off and the game would still play. Now it automatically pauses.

Why was that needed? Ridiculous

I wonder if that is a new Microsoft/Sony requirement. When the game updates go through platform testing it is not for the game itself but really how it interacts in their environment. They require developers to have certain features in games, and it is possible they asked them to add this to meet some sort of standard.

Not saying this is the answer, but it's a different perspective than it is some sort of bug or glitch.

Very possible and would not be a surprise to me if it was the case.
