What exactly is the problem with always online? Who doesn't play their Xbox whilst signed into live? Whose internet is actually so bad it goes down constantly and not maybe once or twice a year, like power as idiot microsoft guy said?
You don't need speeds of that mexican, kinda rat thing to connect to the internet - the only time I have connection problems is during online play (mp) and well... if I'm online... I'm online!!!
Oh but if my internet goes down I'll have to read a book or something! - Well Little Timmy, that's true - but how often and for how long is your internet not working? If there's no backwards compatibility, why not just play on your 360 then?
/Exits mode. The only problem is not getting a connection, realistically I get a connection all the time in the middle of nowhere up north, unless something goes wrong with the lines. But even if something did go wrong, can you not live without it for the day or two that it would take to fix maximum? Oh wait, that's still Devs Ad mode...
Devils advocate? Or ignorant bystander? I know you jest, but there's still plenty of the planet that has little in the way of constant/reliable internet access but has 360 coverage. These
are the countries that currently have access to Live - hardly an all-inclusive list when you consider how many countries there are that do
have 360 access? The coverage in those countries is still debatable with many countries fiddling the statistics as Internet coverage/speed seems to be some sort of dick measuring contest for governments these days. Parts of Wales/Scotland/South West England still struggle to get online consistently, and that's looking closer to home. I struggle to believe they'll go down this route, unless they offer two different packages for the haves/have nots, but the most important thing is none of us knows, so until we do, like the rest of these tiresome rumours, it quite frankly isn't that damn important.
