The New Xbox Requires Internet Access to be on at All Times

Microsoft’s new game console, the successor to the Xbox 360, is creating some negative buzz before PS4’s meeting on February 20.

Apparently Microsoft is making a few major changes to the upcoming console, and gamers don’t seem too pleased. Some of the new changes require a one-time activation code to play new games. This means that purchased games cannot be resold, and the console itself will require a constant Internet connection.

For consumers who live in neighborhoods that don’t have the best bandwidth, this could be a dealbreaker. If Microsoft moves forward with these plans, gamers can no longer share games among friends, and will not be able to buy second-hand games from well-known stores such as Gamestop and Best Buy.
