Rumor: Xbox 720 will allegedly require internet connection to function, could cause potential problems at tournaments According to Edge-Online, the Xbox 720 will allegedly require an internet connection to function. While we do not have an official word, a ton of information has been leaking for the upcoming console from it's 50 GB Blu-ray discs to the console's hardware specs.

If this is true, it is likely we won't see many tournaments being ran on Microsoft's new console as an internet connection to a large number of consoles could potentially be impossible, even if ran wirelessly. Too many consoles on a single internet connection would cause internet connectivity issues which would render the console useless.

Obviously, these are rumors and the exact details could be off. Let us know your thoughts on the topic in the comment section below.
