    Next Xbox Will Not Always Be Online

      A Microsoft internal email has apparently confirmed that the next Xbox will not be always online.

      According to ArsTechnica the email was sent to all full-time employees working on the next Xbox.

      Next Xbox will NOT need an always online connection

      Very happy to see this myself and I think many others will be saying the same thing. It really wouldn't have been great for Microsoft if an always online connection was needed.
