Xbox 720 rumors: next Xbox console will require Internet connection to play games

Until then, rumors will swirl and nothing will be certain until the official launch.

Recent reports state that the Xbox 720 will need Internet to play games.

According to Kotaku, Xbox 720 “must have an active Internet connection to be used.”

“If there isn’t a connection, no games or apps can be started,” Kotaku’s source continued.

“If the connection is interrupted then after a period of time–currently three minutes, if I remember correctly–the game/app is suspended and the network troubleshooter started,” the insider added.

Rumored specifications for the next console include 8GB of RAM, an 8-core 1.6GHz processor and a 50GB 6x Blu-ray Disc drive.
