Ubisoft Montreal CEO feels audience is ready for always-online consoles

Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat has said he suspects the audience is ready for always-online consoles.

Mallat was asked if we were ready for always-online consoles during an interview with The Guardian, to which he replied, "Well, that's a question you should put to Microsoft and Sony! I would say that a lot of people are already always online through other devices – I would suspect that the audience is ready."

Following the shit-storm around newly-departed Microsoft exec Adam Orth's "Deal with it" comment, and the Xbox Live outage over the weekend, you'll have to decide for yourself if we're ready.

Are we? Are you? Discuss below.

Thanks GameInformer.
