Yet more "People want to play single player offline" statements as if they are fact? Really HellspawnRei? Have you got the survey results to back that up? I'm not saying you are wrong, but it's a bit of a sweeping statement with no corroboration offered. It also harks back to a by gone day before Broadband when you needed to keep logging on and off the net rather than it being something constantly connected as it is for probably the vast majority of Xbx users.
Or do you mean you want to play SP offline? Seems more likely to me, but please stop speaking on my behalf because you don't know me and frankly have my needs completely wrong.
I think I'm going to have to both disagree and agree with you on that one, on the one hand I can see how annoying it is to see people act as the "peope's champion" and speak as if they speak for everyone. On the other hand I think I can see where HellspawnRei's concerns come from. When the "infinite power of the Cloud" was first announced my biggest concern was how dependant games would become on it. If even single player games required an internet connection to function it was something that didn't interest me because firstly, no internet connection is 100% guaranteed, problems can and do arise that can cut you off, secondly LIVE has a time limit, when the next machine comes our at some point MS turns off LIVE on it's predecessor, games which require an online connection don't interest me because of this. If "the infinte power of the Cloud" is used as an enhancement without becoming completely necessary it's something I could live with, if the net ever does go down in my place well it's not a huge problem, if games require access to "the infinite power of the Cloud" even in single player, well personally I won't be buying those games.
