Xbox One Doesn’t Require Internet Connection


Shortly after the Xbox Reveal event today, Microsoft revealed that its new console does not require a constant internet connection.

According to Spike TV’s Geoff Keighley, Microsoft’s Don Mattrick confirmed that the Xbox One is not “always on.”

The news disproves rumors that have been kicking around since last year and building ever since. Earlier this year, controversy over the requirement led to the departure of Microsoft Studios creative director Adam Orth, though an alleged internal memo later debunked the feature.
