[quote]Eurogamer: Does the console always need to be connected to the internet?

Shuhei Yoshida: You can play offline, but you may want to keep it connected. The system has the low-power mode - I don't know the official term - that the main system is shut down but the subsystem is awake. Downloading or updating or you can wake it up using either the tablet, smartphone or PS Vita.[/quote]

Hah, true.

It's good to know there is no requirement on an OS/system level however which is key for single player games. Destiny is MP only is it not?

There is a single player, but it's persistent world. I don't think there's generic multi-player. It's seems kind of like a cross between an MMO, MAG, and Demon's Souls.

Would have been mad to make it "always-on"
