Well, opinions are still opinions. You can't expect everyone to make positive posts about the Xbox One. I mean sure some of them sound like they are trashing the new system but keep in mind that this is all just matter of opinion. Weather that comment is talks about it in a good or bad way. If you don't like the "trash talk" then simply either ignore it or just delete the post. Not need to lock the entire topic all because of a few negative posts. Becuase eventually someone else will make another discussion topic about the Xbox One.
I'm not gonna lock the thread, there would be no point. I just don't want to keep deleting post after post. And criticism is not the same thing as trash talk.
This is acceptable:
Okay. So, let's read this quote:
Another Microsoft representative, UK marketing director Harvey Eagle, has confirmed that the Xbox One doesn't require a constant internet connection. "The answer to that question is no. You do not require an always-on connection to be able to use Xbox One," he said. "It is clearly designed to be connected to the Internet, and hopefully from what you've just seen you realize some of the benefits that brings. But if your Internet connection drops, you will still be able to play games, still be able to watch Blu-Ray movies, and still be able to watch live TV."
So basically... "No, you don't technically have to be connected to the internet to turn your system on and play the games you already had to register online, but you really should be connected all the time anyway because of all our super cool internet-exclusive features!"
I'm sorry, but when all your gimmicky features are built around the internet, there is no way you can convince me that this system wasn't Always On and that they backpedalled when the rage rose from the rumors. It's a bait and switch. They cover their ass by making it not-forced-to-be-connected, but still maintain all their features that require the internet anyway... the possibility that you have to install and register your games online, the possibility that you have to pay a fee online to play a used game, the possibility of cloud based gaming and cloud based computing, all your TV and entertainment bull, and of course the XBOX Live we've all come to know and "love".
