Why is the reception so overwhelmingly negative?

So does the 360 have:

Mandatory game installs and nonreplacable 500gb hdd?
Kinect is mandatory and always spies on you?
No backwards compability?
Used game sales fees?
You need personal permission from Microsoft to play your purchased game?
Games are limited to you and only you?
Indies can't self publish games anymore?
Needs to be online every 24h to be able to play at all?


The only feature listed that I am ok with having listed is the "no BC." If MS would have not implemented the rest of those features the One would have been my console of choice and IMO there would be barely any negativity other than a bunch of hate from sony diehards.

Yeah no BC and the non replacable HDD are the only somewhat acceptable things out of the bunch but the rest are all deal breakers on their own, let alone all of them combined in the monstrosity that is the Xbox One.

PS4 and Wii U are focused on games, Xbox One is focused on your wallet.

Agreed, the system in it's current state should NOT be acceptable to anyone. As soon as it was officially revealed it went from guaranteed purchase to no way in hell for me.

Cause people have brains


I like this, don't forget it is the consumer that counts. So people ranting is actually a good thing, especially if the ranting is appropriate.
