Xbox "Insert name here" Won't Need an Always On Network Connection

Yes folks, despite what a number of people have said, the next iteration of the Xbox will not require you to have a constantly active Internet connection. You will still be able play a Blu-ray, watch live TV, and play single player games while you are off the grid. There is still some controversy on if you will need a connection to setup the game for its inaugural run (much like how Steam works). But at least we will be able to play solo when the Comcast (or whomever your provider is) goes done for maintenance.
