Xbox One will Require an Internet Connection to Play


The Xbox One will require an internet connection after all in order to play games, which comes to the chagrin of many gamers. According to press material from Microsoft, the Xbox One will require that you connect to the Xbox Live servers once a day to continue playing it.

This of course presents huge issues for people where internet is limited, especially our men and women in uniform overseas. How Microsoft plans to work that detail out is unknown at this time.

Microsoft's seemingly puzzling answer to this is that, "No, it (Xbox One) does not have to be always connected, but Xbox One does require a connection to the Internet. We’re designing Xbox One to be your all-in-one entertainment system that is connected to the cloud and always ready. We are also designing it so you can play games and watch Blu-ray movies and live TV if you lose your connection."

This is a bold move by Microsoft, and the type of move that could easily backfire on the company.

What do you guys think? Are you worried about the 'almost always on' connectivity required from the Xbox One?

The key here is "connecting to the Xbox Live servers". What if you don't have Xbox Live? Surely, Microsoft won't make the purchase of a monthly XboX Live subscription mandatory? If I don't have Xbox Live, do I not have to worry about being always connected?

There are far to many questions that need to be answered in a couple weeks. I'm not going to judge or complain till then.

So suppose I take my family on vacation, am I supposed to leave it on the whole time? If I don't what exactly does "to continue to play it" mean?

Just a clarification: Xbox Live has a "silver" tier that is free. So you can have an Xbox Live account without paying a monthly fee.

if you buy the cheap version of xbox one they are going to require you have a one year acct, which you will be $15 a month which you would end up pay more money for the cheap version then the one that cost the most so no they are forcing you to get the xbox gold.
