Re: Internet connection required
It cam fast in the tracks of the Always On DRM in SimCity - which was universally hated - I think a lot of people didn't distinguish.
The question should be - Why does a box you play games on need to be online all the time? What else is it doing? If it is set up download the 2 hour long patch for online gaming for a game I am using, then fair enough.
I dusted off a PS3 to play Little Big Planets, and gave up because of the download times... so that is one thing.
