    Lets be real here. Who would really care about "Always On"?

    This poll is to see if you guys would really care about the console having a constant connection, or if this is just something to $#@! about.

    I myself could care less if this were to happen. I ALWAYS have internet, and my console will ALWAYS be connected anyways.

    I am referring to the online DRM rumored to be on the next Xbox console.

    If you need an internet connection to play SP games then yes I care. If you mean always on in the sense of auto updating and whatnot then no. Since I'm not sure which one you mean I didnt vote in the poll.

    Yeah, I would care. And if MS did it and Sony didnt I would choose Sony's console right then and there.

    Yep - and if both did it (in one way or another) then I'd have to give up consoles and go PC/Steam. It would suck $#@! but there you go.

    It's terrible. Why would anyone be comfortable with the potential to be locked from their games? It must only be console owners here supporting or being acceptable of this kind of DRM, because clearly they haven't seen its effects on the PC. Too many times I've been booted or incapable of playing my games because of this $#@!, and I would have to go out of my way to crack a game I bought. This wouldn't even be possible on the consoles, so it's far worse.

    No need to argue anyone's opinions. This thread is really just to see who really cares about it, and vote. I already said it would not bother me as I will ALWAYS have an internet connection.

    No need to argue, I agree, because there's no room for the opposition to argue. No one can give a convincing argument to actively support or encourage DRM, especially this kind.

    It's fine if you're personally OK with it because you have access to the Internet, but my point was that you shouldn't support it, because it only serves to harm consumers. If you're empathetic, you should definitely be against it to some degree.

    Yeah I mean it really will not have any affect on me now but what I move to some place where I can not afford internet for a while. Should I not be able to play the single player of the came I bought? What if I am at a place that has free wifi yet it keeps dropping? If both consoles did it I would not game next gen.

    Well I wouldn't care. People whine about people with no internet connections or bad ones. I say it's more rooted in something to $#@! about pertaining to Xbox platform more than anything. Once disc media based consoles fade away and go to digital downloads, you will be stuck with this in the end anyways.

    No. It's more rooted in being able to play content you purchase to it's fullest extent if your internet connection goes south. A large portion of console customers still do not have adequate internet speeds for always on. Microsoft would be shooting themselves in the foot in lost sales to potential customers with always on. It's not about $#@!ing about which platform is better or putting one down. It's about giving your customers what they want and deserve. I'm going to buy the next gen xbox. If they do this always on bull$#@!, you can $#@!ing forget it.

    I agree with you almost everyting but not this:Microsoft would be shooting themselves in the foot in lost sales to potential customers with always on. They won't be fail, US will have a huge share and cods halos raining so no problem for them, I guess they will try to aim zynga's costumers w,th TV Shows/Movie library while try to keep cod players at hand. Will this work? For money, yes.. They won't fail money wise but they will lose a little bit hardcore game audience.

    I dont support always online DRM, besides the world isnt really ready for such a thing.

    Yes, at present I fully intend to drop out of games once the disc format vanishes and everything goes the eventual online only route.

    Right now I am in Japan. I have only 1 internet cord/connection. So if my PS3, for example, was online-only then I have to choose between playing my PS3 or using my internet. You might say `Hey, just buy an extra cord` but then why do I have to spend even more money, time, and space to set-up something else to play my PS3? It is just going to be an inconvenience.

    How will an event like EVO work? Instead of just setting up a system to TV, now you need X internet cables hooking into X consoles, clogging up everything, limiting you to a corner where the internet jack is at.

    Every time I play online with friends it is a constant battle with my interent connection. 75% time I lose the battle and resort to going back to single player games. There is no way I would be able to play next gen consoles if they went this way... So I voted Yes.

    I can deal with the no-used-games thing because I only buy new games but I can't deal with greedy developers thinking they have a right to do this. I've said it before, if they want one game per console they should "push" digital downloads, making it more attractive to the consumer.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about in terms of always on DRM.
    Ubisoft used to do such a system on PC but it has failed badly and so they removed the always online requirement from all games going forwards.

    People would be happily playing then there was a brief glitch with their internet or the Ubi servers and they were booted out the game back to the start screen with all progress lost.
    Sometimes the Ubi servers were down so nobody could even begin to play which resorted in people downloading the pirated versions just so they could play the game they actually paid for.
    Irony.

    Greedy? Define it! Cuz you wouldn't like it if I looked at your income and decided to call you greedy. You'd of course cry foul and say you don't make a lot of money. Well to a homeless person who has no money, you look mighty greedy to him. Greed is in the eye of the beholder. Be careful when throwing that word around cuz it could just as easily be used to describe yourself.

    Kinda like when union members call corporations greedy for not paying them a "living wage" as defined by THEM. And these SAME union people look for the lowest prices when buying things, yet never think twice as to if their own cheapness in the price they pay for things is providing a "living wage" for the people that make and/or provide that service or product. People are okay with the notion of wanting the cheapest price possible for a product/service..... but blast the very same concept when an employer wants his labor for the cheapest price possible. BOTH are understandable.

    When I was a teen back in the 80's, I used to pirate games all the time. Never thought it was wrong.....UNTIL.... I actually had to go work for a living to pay my bills. Then I understood why it was wrong. If you think a product is too high priced and that the devs are greedy... then just don't buy the game. It's not like it's lifesaving medicine you have to have to survive. We have no right to cheap games.

    Like I said, why do I have to go out and get a separate piece of equipment not otherwise needed? It is not essential. If every game made was online only, then fine it is not a problem. But if the majority to half of the games are offline only, what does having an internet connection do for me?

    TV+System=Easy and Simple
    TV+System+Router+Internet=So many things can go wrong.

    That same argument could be made for all the extra bells and whistles they add to a console that adds to it's price and complexity. Why do I need to pay the added cost of wi-fi in a console when I use the more dependable wired internet with no interference issues? Why do I have to pay for such a big hard drive when I've never come close to filling it?

    Wouldn't a console be cheaper and "Easy and Simple" as you say without a bunch of non-game features and hardware added to it that gives it MORE things that could go wrong with it? With all that stuff added....."So many things could go wrong" as you say. Why not just have it play games instead of this movie playback, web browser, social media/gaming, etc etc stuff?

    When people don't want something, they can come up with every justification under the sun as to why it's such a burden........ but when it's something they really like, they will dismiss the very same things as not being much of a burden at all....all of a sudden.

    Simplified..... You like it...minimize the issues.......don't like it....exaggerate the issues. Happens all the time. Kinda like when PS3 fans dogged the 360 cuz they OVERSTATED the burden of having to swap discs on SOME games. The whole "in this day and age I shouldn't have to get up and swap a disc" baloney, but were perfectly okay with MANDATORY installs eating up the PS3's hard drive space on most games when the 360 made it OPTIONAL.

    All of these features add to the experience and can be beneficial, always on accomplishes nothing for the user. Also considering there's 40 million Live users compared 80 million consoles, that's a big loss. It certainly would force some of them to go online, but that doesn't exactly justify it for me.

    I was happy with the 360 this generation, but I'd skip the next one with this feature. 1 console is fine.

    My name isn't a misspelled Nazi,god****.

Why do I have to pay for such a big hard drive when I've never come close to filling it?

    Wouldn't a console be cheaper and "Easy and Simple" as you say without a bunch of non-game features and hardware added to it that gives it MORE things that could go wrong with it? With all that stuff added....."So many things could go wrong" as you say. Why not just have it play games instead of this movie playback, web browser, social media/gaming, etc etc stuff?

    When people don't want something, they can come up with every justification under the sun as to why it's such a burden........ but when it's something they really like, they will dismiss the very same things as not being much of a burden at all....all of a sudden.

    Simplified..... You like it...minimize the issues.......don't like it....exaggerate the issues. Happens all the time. Kinda like when PS3 fans dogged the 360 cuz they OVERSTATED the burden of having to swap discs on SOME games. The whole "in this day and age I shouldn't have to get up and swap a disc" baloney, but were perfectly okay with MANDATORY installs eating up the PS3's hard drive space on most games when the 360 made it OPTIONAL.
    No because the added bells and whistles are just that, bells and whistles. An internet connection is a requirement, not a whistle, in an online-only console. If my system explodes or my TV explodes or becomes useless then it is, comparatively, easier to fix than if the internet explodes or my router explodes. I buy a new TV, attach a couple cables and it is fixed in 30 seconds. Internet goes down and then what? Call customer service for hours to get an answer? Keep pressing the power button and hoping it turns on? Wait an unknown amount of time before it fixes itself? So instead of having an easy solution with a broken TV/System, now it is the tricky and time consuming solution of the internet.

    Adding movie playback does not prevent me from using the system, nor does a web browser, social media, and so on. It adds to and layers the experience but if I don't care about any of it I can ignore it. I can't ignore not having a stable internet connection. Internet goes out and I have a useless paper weight because nothing will work on it. Even if things could go wrong with parts of the 'additions', I can still use the system for something. Look what happened with the PSN outage. PSN goes down for a month or so but because it is an added feature, and not a mandatory requirement, people can still use the system. Did they $#@!? Yes. Did they whine? Yes. Did they troll? Yes. Do they still complain about it now? Yes. But the system was still useable in some fashion and not useless and taking up space.

    TV+System=Easy and Simple
    TV+System+Router+Internet=So many things can go wrong.
    To get the most out of the console.

    Before buying my PS3 in 2007 My internet was via USB modem (see pic) and when I bought the PS3 in 2007 I asked the person in the store if it was possible to connect via USB modem, he said NO you need a router either wireless or wired.
    So I bought one, I didn't have to but I did to have full use of the console, I saw it as a waste of money not buying a router because I couldn't connect it to the internet and use the console to its full potential.
