Absolutely. I want it that way. I never turn my 360 off, it's always connected and playing Netflix or whatever else.
Most people never turn their computers off, why turn your console off? The next Xbox is going to be an always on, multipurpose entertainment and media machine, not solely a game console, so always on is needed to make it as functional as can be.
I'm hoping for live tiles like Windows 8, so I'll always see my e-mail, Twitter feed, Facebook, etc. scrolling across my TV, news tickers, weather, etc.
what if your internet goes down ?
Do you not buy computers, because OMG what if the internet goes down, I couldn't use the internet, OH NO!
Playing games offline is for hermits. If I couldn't play online I wouldn't want to play period. Besides I use my Xbox for about 80% Netflix, 5% Hulu, 10% MLB.tv and 5% Call of Duty.
Yeah my internet never goes down either. Is this a wide problem?
