Can you imagine if someone at Sony or even Nintendo pulled a **bleep** fit like this?
Edit: profanity removed
the internet has been teeming over this for the last 10 hours at least....
the guy is total tool.
Pretty sure he'll be having a long talk with the PR department in a few hours.
I mean come on...its one thing to express your views, its another thing to be a sarcastic @$$hole about everything and then expect it to be okay when your working with one of the biggest entertainment companies to date. Bad for business, dude shouldn't be allowed on the internet, hes too much of a thread to microsoft...then again, hes too much of an advantage for Sony...so..keep him on
I don't have a huge problem with "always on" as long as it's done well. It's surprising that anyone would try to defend it at this time though, with the high profile failure of Sim City in that regard. I have to wonder if the next XBox was always online, would they still require payments for online services? I would assume so, but still requiring it for non-subscribers to "check in."
just a rumor. no matter how much times they spin it and say its going to happen, in the end the majority will win. If they want to lose more than half of their fanbase, go for it but I doubt its going to really happen because the thought of it is just plain stupid.
