this would kill the xbox in so many ways... like gamers who take them on vacation... some hotels have horrible internet connection... or for RVing families who take them to play at night in the woods, like us... or for people who live where there is spotty internet at best, like us... def. would be a terrible move on their part. i can see always bundling with a kinect, but not requiring it for play, for the same reasons above..
I own 3 xbox 360's, two of which are for younger kids who clearly cannot be "always-online" for obvious reasons. Would Microsoft exclude the family market like this? Think of how many families would switch over to Nintendo or Sony.
If only Big Huge Games was still around there would still be the possibility of a Rise Of Nations HD.
It's all a lie, i pre ordered Age of Empires HD, and still cant play it... i need to wait untill april 9 just like any one else :(
@vmajeric Strange, 2 people are playing it in my friends list :(
