Submission + - Sony confirms the PlayStation 4 will function offline (

An anonymous reader writes: The recent rumors of the Xbox 720 requiring an Internet connection to function have mostly been met with anger and vows by gamers not to buy the console. But that's not the case with the PS4.

Shuhei Yoshida, head of Sony Worldwide Studios, has confirmed that you can play PS4 games offline if you wish. The new console has a slew of features that require an Internet connection, but importantly, every single one of them is optional. If you want to unplug from the ‘net, Sony won’t stop you.
