The whole problem is explained nicely there my Mr.Biscuit.

Always-on adds no functionality what so ever, it in fact detracts functionality. Why do big names in the industry refuse to understand this?

I always figured they understand it's inconvenient but come up with a stance to try to not seem like ****s. This whole thing seems to be driven by the industry's pirating scare. I must say I understand their frustration with the amount of game pirating but they are going about solving this all the wrong ways...

In all honesty big executives in Ubi/EA/whatevs are hurting the gaming industry more than piracy does. Piracy really isn't as bad as it's made out to be. The industry is just using piracy as a scapegoat to mask customer dissatisfaction.

@Everybody: Try this if you've got Firefox. There's also a simple demo that works with all HTML5 compatible browsers.

That's nothing compared to how he pronounces 'poor'. He says roughly "po-ur". (note: the word pour is pronounced more like poor than the actual spelling)

Homophones... English has so many of them. Dutch barely has any but then again, we dismissed all logic!
