... you'll have to be connected online to play any game on it. .... Or are they actually helping push the spread of Internet accessibility by linking it to a popular gaming platform? ....

....What about all those people who live in parts of the U.S. (or other countries) that simply don't have access to quality Internet providers? What about those that can't afford the monthly charge their ISP might gouge them with if there are no other options in the area? Should they be disallowed from playing games on a system if their only crime is not being online? What happens if your service cuts out?

... I think Sony may have missed is that sometimes I don't want to be online. ....Sometimes I don't want to have a friend message or request pop up right in the middle of a moving cutscene. Sometimes I just want to play games by myself with no outside interaction, like I did as a child. Sometimes I want to be antisocial and sit in my corner with no cares about anyone else, and that's tough to do with required online access.

There's always the other side of the coin, however. If true, one of the main reasons Sony is pushing the "always connected" mode is no doubt to combat the used game market, but perhaps Sony is also trying to push progress.

I am wondering if Sony is representative of UBISOFT? Please don't lets forget, UBISOFT forced PC gamers connected online to play any games.

I agree. Sometimes, I simply do not want to be online. Period. No if, ans or buts. If this new console has forced online play, then I will not be buying it.
