Now 35.56% will bend over and take the Xbone. It's going to be an interesting week. Will MS attempt some kind of damage control. Maybe they'll announce that the system will be bundled with a supply of Orbit gum and Preparation H. Take the edge off the masochism.

I'm going to stay with PC and 360 gaming for a while. I upgraded my rig a few months back and it's pretty much top of the range, maybe I could do with a better graphics card. Going to wait a few months and see what the reaction is when it is on sale the xbox one. I also want to see if there are any hardware faults and a price drop would be nice tongue.gif. And as I have a 50GB month cap, I really don't want the xbox one sucking up all my bandwidth when I am gaming..not yet anyway.

Edit.. Forgive the rant... I'm just getting tired reading that the sky is falling.
Sorry but this is a load of horse poo...

No one in their right mind would build a system that requires you have an active connection AT ALL TIMES. Are you expecting all games to be ran from the cloud? I just cant see MS or anyone actually requiring you to have a 100% ALWAYS connected device.
Next up.. OMG IT PHONES HOME (every 24hrs if PLUGGED in..)
You do know that your PS3, 360, PC, Phone, my Sammy TV and DVD player, umm i think thats enough... all check online for something.. new content, movie/tv/music, system updates, game updates, messages, firmware, ect.... Yes the information transmitted varies and until we see a EULA/Privacy statement (which normally is nothing) we have NO idea what MS will know about us..... SCARY HUH!

Always LISTENING!! ... well that could get annoying during sex.. but im sure there will be a way to disable it.. If not umm... .. . .... ...... . .  umm unplug kinect?.. I have a kinect, I've use the voice and motion crap but i CHOOSE not to and I know im somewhat safe because its in its box. Will I use the XBOX ONE kinect? maybe a few times and then its going to see the same fate.. Remember the new kinect still plugs in.. so dont plug it in if you're scared it might be transmitting everything to big brother..

DRM.... And? I cant wait to get rid of all my discs.
So long as the GAMES are tied to my ACCOUNT and not the console i think ill be just fine.
You want to keep your originals safe? Kids, pets, friends, zombies... How about no disc? *head explodes*
Now reselling.. Well its been screwed up for a few years now with "Online Passes".. bright side? IF we are able to sell our digital
copy... you never have to worry about a bad disc... I personally cant come up with a safe way to sell used "codes".. even with a physical disc that has to match sed code...
PS4... You REALLY think its going to be any different than the Xbox One... You will need an internet connection to use the PS4, and there will be DRM.. oh yea and the damn controller has a SHARE button.. you know for OFFLINE use..
I just think there is ALOT of amazing things that could happen with this gen.. but reading any gaming site and the the Xbox One should be scrapped and MS should give up. in the hell does a TV or dvd player call home...and to your other point....your XBOX One won't function out of the box without connecting it to MS for authentication....all the other devices save the phone work right out of the box no internet comment is just like the pacifists on MS's own forum who don't seem to understand the restrictions fully or are just amazed at new shiny things.
