For what it's worth, I may dislike the XB1 but...

I dislike the XB1, but 2 common complaints are things that I don't agree with.

- The spying controversy is honestly not something I am worried about in the very least. Sure, a government force or whatever could demand control of something like that, but then again, the same could be done for a lot of devices. Pretty sure cellphones are used in such cases more than we think.

- Launch issues like RRoD are not something I am worried about for any of the two consoles. 2013 is a better year for technology reliability than 2006-7. And honestly, the XB1 has more vents than an apartment complex. The PS4 also seems okay in my mind.

Now, ask me anything else about the XB1, that would be a different topic. But I am at least aware that those arguments are weak. I'm sure you guys could maybe admit weak arguments over the PS4 as well. I know some of you certainly should.

Not that a government force COULD demand control... it's that one already has!

Yeah, and their waves also may give you a tumor. Doesn't mean we should go play in toxic waste.

And Kinect spying is about as likely as cell phone tumors. So....

Don't forget you pay a premium to get ads ADDED to your console.

And no it isn't just the little box in the corner labeled "advertisement" it's the big box panel in the middle of many of those tabs on the 360.

Ads that don't do anything to hinder your gameplay experience. Or make it harder to actually do something on the console.

So what. I pay for cable TV and there are ads everywhere. I pay to go to a baseball/football game and there are ads everywhere. Seriously, people need to stop crying about ads, they are EVERYWHERE!

Oh, and the PS4 will have them too!

I agree with you though that doesn't make it ok, there are way too many adverts in modern life and the X1 is just perpetuating that.

I couldn't agree with this topic anymore. Out of all the things wrong with the X1, the main thing people dislike about the console is that there's an extremely slight chance that maybe the government might hack into your kinect and spy on you. Get over yourselves, nobody wants to watch you sit in front of your TV. I'm sure you most of you guys own web cams and cell phones any way.
