WELL THEN. If a company's employee wants to respond to consumer fear with a #dealwithit, then that employee just lost the my support for their company. Out of principal, it looks like I'm going to have to get a PS4, and just the PS4.

This guy is pathetic. So rather than back up his idea with reasonable arguments he chooses to become a child? What an absolutely outstanding idea!

Most educated people know that always-on sucks. This will just increase PS4 sales.

Is this guy an idiot or was he trying to get fired? #dealwithit is basically trying to start a flamestorm.

Perhaps some of the most immature responses from a top creative-industry employee ever. His argument is pretty invalid anyway. I mean it doesn't matter about whether you CAN or you CAN'T get online in your area, or how bad the connection is. WE DON'T WANT TO HAVE THE INTERNET TURNED ON TO HAVE A QUICK GAME OF __________ < insert game title there

I normally try to stay unbiased or keep my thoughts to myself on matters such as these, but I must say that as a long time Sony fan these past few months have been incredible. I mean, this build up to the next generation has seemingly worked so much in their favor, even in regards to things out of their control such as this.

So far, the only way I could imagine things going better for Sony is if COD became an exclusive or something crazy like that happened.

I really hope this momentum continues and we get a really great console with a slew of awesome games and new possibilities.

Wow. *bleep* that guy. I wonder how many more people in the industry are prats like him.

By the way, power does go out. You know what gets around that? Generators. Batteries. I don't think I've heard of a gas powered internet that I can take with me when I head up north to a secluded cabin. The world isn't quite advanced yet, get off your high horse.

A vacuum cleaner has a clear and obvious need for a source of electricity. A single player game does not have a need for a continuous internet connection. Well done.

I feel like this guy is obviously trolling. Like, everyone. It likely started out as just expression his personal opinion, but after seeing the poor responses to that, he went with sarcasm. And doing a really poor job of it.

just another reason why you should and will buy a PS4 whenthe two consoles come out. Requiring an always-on internet will just turn many less-connected players away, and would be pointless anyway when it comes to single-player games and missions.
