Sony boss, Shuhei Yoshida, has confirmed that the company never considered implementing an always-online system in the Playstation 4. Microsoft has long been rumoured to have been considered adding the requirement of always having an internet connection, but the Sony president confirms it wasn’t even considered to the delight of those planning to purchase the console.

Microsoft has been rumoured to be implementing the requirement to have an active internet connection on their Xbox 720 console for a long time, however, recently, that has been faced with doubts as to whether they will go through with it. Sony has reassured its PS4 fans have nothing to worry about, “No, we didn’t consider it” Yoshida said in this month’s GameInformer.

The boss expanded on his statement, giving a reason why this system should not be implemented; “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.”

So, you will still be able to enjoy your single player games in the event on a disconnection from the Playstation Network on the PS4. Stick with us for more news from Sony and Microsoft as things heat up whilst we move towards E3 and a full reveal of the next generation of console gaming!
