Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida has once again reiterated that not only will the PS4 not require an always-online internet connection, but that the Japanese company never even considered it.
"The main reason being that many countries don't have robust internet connections. It makes sense for people to have internet connections to play online games, but for offline games there are many countries that we saw do not really have robust internet."
Hooray! And it looks like Microsoft might be coming round to the idea as well. Fingers crossed, eh?!
