We live in a connected world right now, and honestly some of us are connected in other ways instead of our home entertainment system…SOME of us. The great thing is that Sony also knows this and will cater to those of us that aren’t on the grid.
Just earlier, a PR representative from sony confirmed to kotaku that the playstation will not require online connectivity to play games. Sony will not require online registration and it will be up to the publishers if they require online connectivity.
Sony’s Head of Worldwide gaming studios also stated “Oh yes, yes, you can go offline totally. Social is big for us, but we understand there are some people who are anti-social! So if you don’t want to connect to anyone else, you can do that.”
