There has been a lot of press lately for Microsoft over some concerns about the Xbox One’s need to have an internet connection at regular intervals, so much so a lot of Xbox “fanboys” around the world are starting to consider the switch to the PS4, and almost confirming those always-on rumors we heard a few months back.
In an interview with GameTrailers, Don Mattrick CEO of Xbox, responded to some of these issues with the following quote, “fortunately, we have a product for people who aren’t able to get some form of connectivity, it’s called Xbox 360.”
Which doesn’t seem that promising when it comes to Microsoft working with its users to find a common ground, continuing to state:
“Well, if you have zero access to the internet, that is an offline device, I mean, seriously, when I read the blogs, and thought about who’s really the most impacted, there was a person who said ‘hey, I’m on a nuclear sub,’ and I don’t even know what it means to be on a nuclear sub but I’ve gotta imagine it’s not easy to get an internet connection.”
So not a great day if you own a nuclear submarine.
