Leaked memo appears to rule out new Xbox’s ‘always online’ reports

An internal Microsoft memo has appeared online, and it seems to debunk the rumours that the console will always need an internet connection.

Obtained by Ars Technica, the email was sent to “all Microsoft employees currently working on the next Xbox” and stated that when it comes to certain functions, the console should “just work”. Those functions are named as watching a Blu-ray, watching live TV, and playing a single player game. The email – if legitimate – would also confirm another Durango rumour, namely the inclusion of a Blu-ray drive. Here is the alleged memo in full;


“Durango  is designed to deliver the future of entertainment while engineered to be tolerant of today’s Internet. There are a number of scenarios that our users expect to work without an Internet connection, and those should ‘just work’ regardless of their current connection status. Those include, but are not limited to: playing a Blu-ray disc, watching live TV, and yes playing a single player game.”


Microsoft will officially announce the new Xbox on May 21.
