According to the Verge, there is still some speculation about whether or not the new X Box will be required to have an always on Internet connection. When asked if the console will need to be online for gameplay, Microsoft said: "No, it does not have to be always connected, but Xbox One does require a connection to the Internet" Does that pertain to games, or using the other services that the X box offers? What about second hand games? According to Microsoft, that will be allowed. but another fee would have to be paid to enable the game on the second account. Where does this fee go? Microsoft really needs to not screw this up, because as Gruber points out, “Xbox is Microsoft’s foothold in the post-PC world”.
