Say it ain’t so!

Daily Radar received some info from a highly placed Microsoft source, stating that you will not see broadband capability at launch of the Xbox.

The cause of this delay is the slower-than-expected adoption of broadband, the source indicated. With the Ethernet connection that is built in the Xbox, the console will have no problems with networked games at 56K or lower. With that in mind, you are good to go with deathmatch games, but it doesn’t look to good for massively multiplayer online titles.

When a Microsoft spokesperson was contacted, he just said that nothing has been announced yet and be on the the look out for more news to come on this at this year’s E3.
