For a long time around the new console Microsoft, which has not been announced, it is rumored that it will require a constant connection to the Internet. And the head of Microsoft Studios Adam Orth indirectly confirmed these rumors.
He wrote on his Twitter: «I do not understand the drama around the console, which will require a constant connection to the Internet.” He then said that now all devices “always connected”. “Get over it, – he added – is the world in which we live.”
When he was reminded of the problems faced by the creators of SimCity 5 (which also can be played just by being connected to the Internet), Ort said, “Electricity, you know, sometimes also cut off” – and added that it is not affected, for example, the desire of consumers to purchase vacuum cleaners, which operate on electricity.
