This poll is now closed.
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.

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.

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

What is Xbox about now? NFL?

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.
