    Default Gamers Without Internet Can Stick With Xbox 360, Says Microsoft

    “We have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity; it's called Xbox 360.”

    In an interview filmed prior to Microsoft’s E3 2013 press briefing and published on GameTrailers, Microsoft’s Don Mattrick has addressed concerns about the compulsory connectivity requirements of Xbox One.

    “"Fortunately we have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity; it’s called Xbox 360,” said Mattrick.

    “If you have zero access to the Internet, that is an offline device.”

    Mattrick is aware of the kinds of gamers who’ll be missing out on Xbox One, and “absolutely” anticipated some blowback, but went on to reiterate he feels they have made the right call.

    I don’t even know what it means to be on a nuclear sub but I’ve got to imagine it’s not easy to get an internet connection.

    “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 got to imagine it’s not easy to get an internet connection. But hey, I can empathise; if I was on a sub I’d be disappointed.

    “It’s a service-based world, if you think about things and how they get better with an internet connection, that’s a design choice we’ve made. I think people will appreciate it... We did a lot of testing, a lot of consumer research and I think we made a good choice.”

    Mattrick said Microsoft appreciates the passion of gamers but he believes gamers are “imagining outcomes that are worse than what we believe it’s going to be in the real world.”

    This is Microsoft's way of saying "We're butthurt, so deal with it". Great way to boost sales, right?

    I was always planning on getting the PS4 and buying a tv for my room.
    I think people might be a bit butthurt over the connection factor, but I don't really see the problem with it because when I get the PS4, I'm still gonna keep my wifi connected which I'm sure most people do with their current xbox 360.
    The most noise should be kept over the game sharing which is BS.
