re: RUMOR: Next Xbox to release in November @ $500


because I don't play online or use online features with my xbox? Really wouldn't want to pay for something I don't use.

B/c, when the MS validation servers are offline, your Xbox is a useless POS.

Personally I think this online thing (IF TRUE) is MS trying to force people into buying XBL subscriptions.

If they made XBL free (PS style, won't happen though), then I wouldn't see any problem with it.

Yeah, I don't see them requiring it either. There is just too many potential headaches/ fallout to deal with, but it is a hell of a lot more interesting for people to write about mandatory internet connections than not ::shrug::

yeah, when server support gets pulled, does that mean I just get a nice paperweight?

if precedent serves, xbox original game servers are as dead as disco.

I don't steal games, so I'm so fricking thrilled that I get to deal with DRM everywhere I turn.

and this is purely speculative bitching, before anybody jumps my shite for buying into rumors.

You have that backwards. Pirated copies for big games usually double or even triple the amount of legitimate copies.
