Even though Microsoft appears to still be committed to the idea of letting Xbox Live users identify each other by their real names, if they so choose, that feature won't be available when the Xbox One launches on November 22, a rep for the console confirmed to Kotaku

As I was going up the stairs I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today. I wish, I wish he'd go away.

So like pretty much every Microsoft product, half the features are "coming soon."

Pretty much any brand spanking new piece of hardware. This isn't exclusively an issue with MS.

Well, I don't want this feature at all, myself. I hope we can opt-out.

"half the features". Grow up. Just like Sony, the system is shipping with a few things that need some polish. That's like now. All games and systems do this so they can get the product to the consumer faster. Its absolutely nothing game breaking so chill.

Yeah. If I want people to know my name I can just tell them what it is. I've got a few friends on XBL who I'm on a first name basis with but I don't need everyone to know my name.

Putting your name for an online gaming community is almost as bad as posting a picture of your mom on 4chan.
