It's funny that you need to have the system online in order for it to work properly right out of the box.

Exactly. It's the definition of hypocrisy.

The Sony Defense Force excuse is now that the PS4 update on day one is only to add a few features - they maintain that the X1 is a brick without the day one patch, so that makes it ok.

So basically anyone who buys a next gen (sorry wiiu) console this holiday must have an internet connection.

Just goes to show the uproar was all stage faux outrage.

if you can't get internet why are you buying one of these expensive next gen consoles which rely heavily on it?

Maybe buy internet instead.

Was never an excuse, that was always the case to begin with. The PS4 will play games with no update, the Xbox One won't. Updates are going to be expected through the life of the consoles and even on launch days.

Even the original Xbox had an update if you connected it online first day. Every console is going to be expected to have some form of update on the first day since manufacturing only gets a certain revision.

The Xbox One has no excuse shipping without primary function out of the box. The Xbox One is still alone in being the first console in history to not even work as a gaming console out of the box.

"The patch will be required for anyone wanting to make use of online multiplayer or the Blu-ray and DVD player functionality of the console."

Lol - seriously? I guess IF you digitally download it will - but since it needs the update for DVD or Blu-ray functionality, it won't play disc based games until you update.

Also - ZERO multiplayer without the update on day one.

But I expect these excuses from TSDF.......

Microsoft announces day 1 patch: LOL Microsoft needs a patch to fix their ****-up (though people were 100% aware of the circumstances)

Sony announces day 1 patch: oh it's okay. It's just to add in the features they promised us :)

not saying microsoft is any better, but lol at the fanboys here.
