During a rehearsal for the Xbox press conference, Don Mattrick took the time to speak with Gametrailers to discuss the message that the Xbox One is trying to send across to gamers. Along with that conversation came talk about always online and the recent push back the Xbox One received from gamers across all forms of social media. When asked about players without an internet connection, Mattrick replied “fortunately we have a product for people who can’t get some form of connectivity… it’s called Xbox 360.”
Well I guess we now know why Microsoft PR cancelled most of its executive interviews at E3; to avoid things like this being said. If you want to see the quote for yourself, take a look at the clip below, courtesy of Youtube user ZybakTV.
