    Well this pretty much confirms the "always online" policy imo. :(

    btw he started to delete his tweets for some reason lol. Here's the screen grabs provided by Neogaf:

    Really! That kinda sucks. I know a lot of people who don't have internet but still buy the games to play campaign and stuff.
    I bought Diablo 3 without that knowledge, Its gonna suck now I'm even re thinking my choice of staying with Xbox.
    Sadface.

    Much love, ShockadinHD

    Doesn't confirm anything. Part of what's great about consoles is the availability of em. An "always on" console would limit it for some therefore some wouldn't buy it. That equals less money to Microsoft. Won't happen.
    He deleted his tweets because his boss put him in his place. :lol:

    Hope Microsoft fire that adam guy, What a tool. I worked as a communication engineer for many years and still to this day broadband is still to unstable for always connected. This adam is just a piece of work, Just to say if you live somewhere without good broadband you should move. Microsoft just fire this dumbass!

    This is beyond recognition. Why would we need always on? It would be a pointless addition xD As said many people don't have the internet. T'would be a shame if Microsoft let down that part of the community just for some "always on" feature. Would be like EA "Here have the game..OH BY THE WAY you need an online pass to play all of it after buying it for £40 thanks bro".

    but

    I mean it won't affect me, but that's just wrong for the casual players who play games for the story.
