Durango itself will also always be online like any other device (correct with rumors), but it will not be a requirement to play local content and it will not prevent playing used games. Putting in an Xbox 360 disc into Durango will prompt the user to attach the supporting device that is sold separately. By separating the two devices and their functions it will ensure price competitiveness for both pieces of hardware. Microsoft’s delay in announcing these products from April goes more inline with not having a physical set of devices to show (among specification updates), which should be ready by May or June when this information is officially released.

Is it true Games on Demand games boot you out after 10 minutes of no connection?

That seems like a really smart way to tackle backwards compatibility. People who want to play 360 games can buy the add-on without needing to have 2 devices in their living room, and people who don't want it won't have to pay extra. If this is true, it actually turns the tables and makes the PS4 the console that is required to be online (for backwards compatibility).

If one device snaps into the other in some shape or form, they're one device.

I'm still scratching my head at the idea of them saying you don't need 2 devices in your living room... when you apparently need an addon (sold separately) to attach just for this capability. You would still have two devices, and you are paying for both of them.
It's interesting seeing Paul Thurrott's information coming to light though. So much for keeping quiet hah.
Apparently, Adam Orth has "resigned" as well. Looks like Francis was right in calling him FORMER creative director.
