I feel like that article was written by JRod, paraphrasing every article he's read in the last 2 months.

Apparently it's no longer online only, you can play used games and kinect isn't essential.

I'll believe it when I see it.

The notion of the next Xbox as a television device does give some intriguing context to the recent brouhaha over “always-on” technology. Your modern DVR set-top box is constantly connected to facilitate the steady stream of information being sent back and forth, so that you can power on and get whatever channel or services almost instantly. It also allows the device to know when to record a program that is on when you’re away. In order for an Xbox to successfully work as a television device, it would need to have a constant connection.



by having your set top box or tv plugged in through your xbox, wouldnt that allow you to control it with kinect

Seriously, you will never convince most internet users that losing access to their games while simultaneously losing access to streaming amputee midget porn will ever be a good idea.

I really don't think itll kick you off an "offline" style game if you lose your internet connection.

I think the always onlinething will have more to do with the tv and crap like that.

we'll have to wait and see. i'm curious.

You know what they say about curiosity?

It leads to self-empowerment via the discovery and accumulation of knowledge.

I heard they are implementing a Kinect DNA scanner and if it detects the DNA of another person within 20m of the game console whenever it is turned on, Microsoft will automatically bill you the cost of an entire other console and for another license of every game you've ever purchased.

Now you guys have heard it. Must be legit.

Yeah, I know - Just having fun pretending to be Kotaku here.

In another ITM exclusive I can let you know that the new ET game will actually be Aliens vs ET (with Aliens vs ET vs Predator as exclusive pre-order content if you purchase through Amazon.com) and will be created by a new indie publisher started by popular ex-Microsoft Creative Director Adam Orth who tells us "When ET sees the Aliens: It's always on!"
