Xbox One gamers unable to connect their console to a broadband connection can carry out the 24 hour check-in using a mobile phone, Microsoft corporate vice-president Phil Harrison has told The Telegraph.
"We do recognise there will be these very rare edge cases where for whatever reason your internet is down," said Harrison. "In my experience internet downtime lasts for seconds or minutes. In those few occasions you don't have access to your usual broadband connection, you could tether your Xbox to your mobile phone. The 24-hour ping takes kilobytes of data."
Well, that's pretty cool. My router does disconnect every once in a while. So this would be a welcome addition. And its kilobytes. Interesting. How many kilobytes?. I guess like, who gives a fuck?. But then, I guess that's the whole point of this worry anyway.
