Well there are rumors out there about Xbox's always-online requirement,the next-gen console will suspend games or applications if not connected to the internet so that If the connection is interrupted then after a period of time which i believe is three minutes currently, the game/app is suspended and the network troubleshooter started, so in short you will need to be online to be able to do anything on your console.
I'm strongly against this for various reasons and i'll make my case in the debate.
Round One will be acceptance only .
Round two will be opening statements.
Round Three will contain the debate.
Round Four will have the ending statements and conclusion.
Rules.
No semantics, trolling, spamming.
Debate resolution, definitions or rules cannot be changed.

Why do you think Microsoft would deny a rumor. Halo 4 had tons of rumors circling around it, 343 did nothing, and now tons of Halo fans are disappointed.

Well if it was true and they avoided answering the question, that would make it look even worse.

if it really was just a rumor Microsoft would've just denied it right away, but instead the commented "we have not made any announcements about our product roadmap, and have no further comment on this matter "

This type of thing, was why I did not buy Diablo3. I wanted Diablo3, not Diablo2 Online only edition.

I think that's just a rumour. I think Sony tried this, sales tanked.
