Will the new Xbox roll over PS4?

Will Microsoft’s next Xbox (codenamed Durango) roll over Sony’s PlayStation 4 in terms of software development? Atari founder Nolan Bushnell seems to think so. In this new video (found on Gametrailers) Bushnell says Microsoft has a huge advantage over Sony in terms of ease-of-use for software developers, and superior online world experience. He goes on to talk about virtual reality and other new gaming technology, as well as the weaknesses of the Nintendo DS system. According to Bushnell “the days of the standalone portable game player are over,” citing iOS and Android platforms as the future.

In other Xbox news, a report from Kotaku questions whether or not the next Xbox will require an ‘Always On’ connection. While Sony has confirmed the PS4 will not need to be connected to run games, sources seem to indicate Durango may treat dropped internet connections over 3 minutes as an error.
