Let me see you opt out of the 24hr call home and the always having to be connected, oh wait you can't.

I am more annoyed about that really with it.

Question.

If having to connect once every 24 hours is an "always online" requirement, what do you call the requirement for things that actually require an always online connection?

Besides isn't the only thing that happens if you miss that 24 hour window is you have to manually log in the next time you try to go online? As in you have to gasp* type in your name and password.

Seriously people are so insane over this issue.

Pretty much this. Everyone keeps screaming about always online with the XBONE but it's once every 24 hours, mainly to check for and download updates for your own convenience.

I'm still betting that XBONE games are going to come with a lower MSRP which is why they are doing the trade restrictions and all that jazz. Time will tell...

The difference is that you'll have to be connected even for single player games, and if you don't it'll stop being a gaming console and it'll turn into a cable box.

I think you should read the question again.

All I know is that where I live (Oklahoma City), it is not uncommon for me to loose power or cable for an extended period of time due to tornadoes or high winds. Two weeks ago I lost power for 48 hours because of a tornado, which didn't hit my immediate area. I have a generator, so I was able to power most things up, but if I were to have an XBone, I would not be able to play it. It is an unnecessary restriction, plain and simple.

It's ok if you don't like my answer, it won't keep me up at night.

Enjoy your Xbone.
