Here’s some sad news for the Xbox fans, the new Xbox 720 requires an internet connection to function. Gaming could not have been made more inconvenient, or is this is the beginning of a whole new gaming era?
The Xbox 720 will be an always-connected device that will require a constant connection to the next version of Xbox Live to function. The games will be available at Xbox Live to buy or in physical form using a 50GB Blu-ray disc format and a one-time use activation code. Microsoft is choosing to use a 1.6GHz 8-core AMD processor, 800MHz GPU, and 8GB RAM. This move by Microsoft is more or less likely to wipe out the used gaming market completely.
Xbox 720 Leaked Specs Are True!
This may be bad news for Xbox fans, but Sony will get a positive hit by this move. Business-wise gamers would prefer using the Sony PS4 to avoid the internet connectivity hassle. The option to switch to Blu-ray comes as no surprise as there is no other viable large-capacity disc format Microsoft could use, again causing an increase in Sony sales.
