Re: Xbox one 24 hour connect question

Erm. Nothing? You'll come back, turn it on and it will connect.

The actual check won't need to be exactly [i]every[/] 24 hours, it will just schedule another check for a time that's at least 24 hours after the last time it was checked, whenever that could be. Week, Month, Year.

Re: Xbox one 24 hour connect question

The timer will be internal to the Xbox. So something will happen if the console doesn't have a connection, at the time it attempts to run the check.

So when the check hits - and the console is offline - the system stops access. When you next connect it, a connection is made and access is restored.

TBH - this is probably the only thing I'd really like to see removed. *touch wood* I don't tend to have internet problems, but it would be a shame if it goes tits up

Re: Xbox one 24 hour connect question

If it can't do the check (ie. if the console's disconnected) you can't play games on it. Apparently you can still use it to play DVDs and Blu-Rays, but in terms of gaming it temporarily bricks itself until it is reconnected.

Re: Xbox one 24 hour connect question

What? You mean you don't like the idea of an expensive DVD player during the inevitable periods of internet outage? What are you, some kind of terrorist?
