Thread: Microsoft offers solution to play Xbox offline

  1. #1

    Default Gamers Without Internet Can Stick With Xbox 360, Says Microsoft

    In an interview filmed prior to Microsoft’s E3 2013 press briefing and published on GameTrailers, Microsoft’s Don Mattrick has addressed concerns about the compulsory connectivity requirements of Xbox One.

    “"Fortunately we have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity; it’s called Xbox 360,” said Mattrick.


    “If you have zero access to the Internet, that is an offline device.”

    Mattrick is aware of the kinds of gamers who’ll be missing out on Xbox One, and “absolutely” anticipated some blowback, but went on to reiterate he feels they have made the right call.



    I don’t even know what it means to be on a nuclear sub but I’ve got to imagine it’s not easy to get an internet connection.

    “Seriously, when I read the blogs and thought about who’s really the most impacted there was a person who said, ‘Hey I’m on a nuclear sub.’ And I don’t even know what it means to be on a nuclear sub but I’ve got to imagine it’s not easy to get an internet connection. But hey, I can empathise; if I was on a sub I’d be disappointed.

    “It’s a service-based world, if you think about things and how they get better with an internet connection, that’s a design choice we’ve made. I think people will appreciate it... We did a lot of testing, a lot of consumer research and I think we made a good choice.”

    Mattrick said Microsoft appreciates the passion of gamers but he believes gamers are “imagining outcomes that are worse than what we believe it’s going to be in the real world.”

    I suppose that if I were to buy a XBox, I would be able to live with it. As long as it doesn't require a constant connection (in case internet goes down) and allows for connecting to the router via Wifi, I'd be ok with it. Would be better if they only required a weekly connection instead of 24 hours.

    No guts, no glory, no brain, same story.

    Not really applicable here, but for some reason this quote got stuck in my head....

    At some stage MS needs to realize that they only have enough space in their mouth for one of their feet...... not both of them......

    Removed "One" from forum headline.

    As for the article headline - the whole point is you can't. Want to play the Xbox One offline? You can't.
