Another wrench in this whole debate is this:

If the new xbox will require 'always on' will Microsoft still charge an annual fee to connect your xbox to their servers? I haven't read anything that they will or they won't, but my gut tells me they absolutely will! That's an on-going fee on top of your xbox purchase and ISP fees. That would be yet one more reason for me NOT to buy a new xbox.

I'd have big problems with this. First because of the aforementioned fact that I'm paying full price for something I won't have any control over - and then I'd have mud flung in my eye to pay for that absence of control annually.

Secondly, my ISP costs me enough, I don't want to pay more just to connect my xbox to MS's servers when Sony and Nintendo do this for free (at least so far).
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
