Have to have a internet connection to play games. (even offline ones)

Preowned games, Used games, Friends games, Rentals, you have to pay $60 to play.

Focus is on making it a Voice activated Media Center not a gaming device?

Seriously... I don't think Halo and Gears of War "exclusive" is enough to justify getting a Xbox One now.

Nintendo is not only out of touch with their fanbase, but with reality - period.
Sokar, Eliot... lay off Tony. I can vouch for him. He's a top lad and a massive PS3 supporter. He's not an enemy here. - SomnusNemoris on the Sony Defense Force

Have to have a internet connection to play games. (even offline ones) Shut down.

Preowned games, Used games, Friends games, Rentals, you have to pay $60 to play. Shut down.

Focus is on making it a Voice activated Media Center not a gaming device? It;s still a gaming device.

Irrelevant points.

This is why no one listens to you on the Wii U board.

It's not that they are out of touch with us... it is just that they don't care and would rather craft the system to appeal to devs before customers.

I look forward to seeing how far that gets them.
