So it's Microsoft's fault that people are hermits?

No, its MS fault for not understanding "capable" internet is NOT available everywhere, much like kids who post in these kinds of topics to usually bash.

I would chalk that up to "collateral damage."

Where I live there's a TON of areas where if you want even remotely high speed you need to get satellite (which as most of you probably know is usually very crappy and sometimes expensive depending what they need to install). Shoot even where I live in Salisbury MD if you want true high speed you HAVE to go with cable and have to go with Comcast. We're nowhere near the point in our country that anybody should be requiring "online only" anything yet.

Like Hoosier said too many Moutains and Trees also to even get the internet you have to have a line of sight or be able to see a Tower. NO TOWER - NO INTERNET.

Other than 56k dial up the Moutians and Trees also block Cellphones or WiFi.

ALWAYS ON Kids means Internet Is Required each time you boot up the console it would mean that you would need Broadband, DSL, WiFi in order to use and play the console.

People such as myself living in Rural Communitys with no line of sight basically would be crap out of luck with the ALWAYS On deal.

So this would be a bad Move with the Always On deal if the do this then they will cut off a lot of potential next gen customers such as myself.

Except it's NOT going to cut out "a lot" of potential next gen customers. The majority of the population does not live way out in the sticks. Yes they'll lose a few, but they're going to be fine with their target demographic. Something tells me the people who live in isolation aren't too worried about getting the next-gen systems.

I live in an area where I might as well be on a deserted island as It, feels like you are cut off from the modern world I have no access to the internet or Cell Phones.

So if next gen requires ALWAYS On then I will get neither of them and this will mark an end of 20+ years of gaming.
