I could go on, but I feel this more than expresses my opinion on all the bitching.
Please explain the greatness that is XB1.
Dont worry I'll wait....
Then you have the patience of a saint, because you'll be waiting an eternity.
What annoys me are people who say "If you don't like the console & aren't planning on ever buying it, stop bitching about it." Sorry but it's not as simple as that. If Xbone & its anti-consumer stance succeeds, then you can bet it will influence others in the industry, who will follow suit. So I can't just ignore it & neither should anyone else who values their consumer rights & still believes the customer is the most important part in the equation.
Make no mistake, if Sony were the ones with MS's policies, I'd be buying an XOne instead. If both had 24hr authentication (which is a mild term) & restrictions on what can do with my own property, then I'd have to stick with my 360, PS3 & Vita. Further down the line, I'd look into how cheap a comparable PC gaming setup was & finally take the plunge.
I'd love a study to be done on fanboys, especially in the gaming sector. Because this particular brand of 'fanatic', is a different breed to say, football fans. In fact, I'm surprised Microsoft, EA, Activision et al haven't funded such a thing, to learn how to better exploit them & hopefully create more.
