The next Xbox: Always online, no second-hand games, 50GB Blu-ray discs and new Kinect

EDGE - Microsoft’s next console will require an Internet connection in order to function, ruling out a second-hand game market for the platform. A new iteration of Xbox Live will be an integral part of Microsoft’s next console, while improved Kinect hardware will also ship alongside the unit. (Gadgets, Gaming, Microsoft, Xbox ‘Durango’)

Nope. Sony is doing the opposite to lure the people who dislike this concept of Microsofts'.

To Microsoft that means, a lot of consumers without forcing them to buy Gold Membership, which means no profit to them.

Do you really think Microsoft cares for you if you're not giving them annual money or monthly payments?

Internet speeds are about to increase in the next few months along with the mobile devices speeds and the decreasing prices of WiFi around conclude there maybe a way can see this happening.

Don't believe this Bs people, nobody will announce just a stupid thing, because if they did the so called "Console war" would end the second it's announce.
