as long as you can play a game and indeed have the xbox functioning WITHOUT the internet connection plugged in then there shouldnt be any problems.

It's amazing how much people are willing to bend over and accept. It's really not okay, and people should have a problem with this. Even if it's not as bad as rumours suggested, it's a step in the wrong direction.

Um.. how? It pretty much confirms the earlier rumors of being always online were false.

So then the rumor that the Xbox will lock up after 3 minutes has been debunked, I'm not too keen on the way they used the word "tolerant" specifically but at least its a step in the right direction.

...means we can rest east.
East? If I step any farther East I'll be in the ocean...

This looks promising, but if we do end up getting some type of always on system, we'll still be able to just unplug the damn thing when we aren't using it, or hold the power button down (Assuming that works). I'm fine with this, but what news do we have on the account-bound disks? If that's the case with either of these new consoles, "lolnope" I'm not buying that shit!

Google search proves it as slang, but I'm afraid I've never heard that term used before, or I mistook it for "easy". What street do you live on? xD

Is this like a new thing of the next generation where companies will now have to announce that "X product" does in fact function offline?

Since when did offline play become a bullet point. Also I'm unsure the legitimacy of this email, doesn't sound all that professional, I'll chalk this as fake and just wait till the 21st for confirmation either way.

No, this is probably in response to the rumors the media & websites have ran away with.
