Blog: Rumours cause nothing but MASS PANIC
“You know that woman down the road? “well last night she totally chucked out her husband and threw his clothes out of the bedroom window”.
That ladies and gentleman is one of many things I’ve heard in public, or read via Facebook and other social networks over the last few years, but why are you posting about a cheating husband on a game page? I hear you ask, well let me continue.
Recently Xbox 360 rumours have been setting the internets on fire with what will be in store for the next-gen edition of our beloved console.
It will have better graphics and be better than the 360, we know that, but where the trouble begins is when rumours and stuff gets posted by one person, and it is then made 100% fact.
Did that guy actually cheat on his wife above? I will never know, but he could have just been taking the washing to the laundrette.
What I’m saying is rumours sometimes turn out to be not true at all.
The big story from last night was when Adam Orth (a Creative Director at Microsoft Studios) tweeted out some pretty harsh things about why he thinks next-gen should be “Always on”
Thanks to NeoGAF for capturing the tweets.
Of course after reading this comment from one guy Twitterverse lit up, as in their minds this was 100% fact, and not just the tweet of one guy at a huge company.
Maybe this was a rant at his co-workers who don’t want such a thing in the next gen console, and he thought fuck it I’m gonna rant.
Maybe it was all a test to see how gamers would react, and we have played right into their plans.
The only issue I see about being “Always connected” is midway through a game my connection drops and the game does not save my game, but surely Microsoft are a better company than that and would not let such a thing happen.
Rather than thinking of just myself in all of this I can also see the positives in this for both for MS and games publishers.
Always being online would surely stop pirated consoles being used around the globe, which is something I fully agree on, as many games publishers lose out on money this way.
At the end of the day don’t believe anything until it is 100% confirmed, and let’s enjoy what we have now, and not in the future.
But if you can’t wait to see what the future has in store then please take a look at the 100% confirmed Xbox 720 below, and just think this will be all ours in the very near future.
The internet is never wrong right?
