Would people really be bothered about the Xbox One having to connect to the internet every so often if the console could be offline for more than 24 hours, say a week or even a couple of weeks? Given that you have to activate new games on-line, if you want to play a new game you will have to check in with Microsoft at some point. That would also mean if you did trade any games in that licence would get revoked sooner or later. Does it matter if say i trade a game in on Saturday, however don't connect to Xbox Live again until next Tuesday. That is honestly the only logical reason i can think of as to why Microsoft want the console on-line every day. When you think about it has anyone really lost out if i could play a game i've probably completed a couple of days longer? I was thinking in the grand scheme of things if the console could be offline more than a day i probably wouldn't have had much of an issue with it having to call home every so often. My internet can be pretty unreliable at times which is why i have an issue with the whole 24 hour thing, if i could be off-line for a week then i honestly don't think it would brother me that much.
