People are very disappointed that the Xbox One is already showing it has trouble running multiplatform games in the superior quality that the PS4 is running them in, and yes that's a problem.... but what about the lack of offscreen play?

The Wii U's gamepad ans the PS Vita working with the PS4 are both solutions that allow us to continue playing our consoles games on portable devices, yet the Xbox One doesnt have this option. To me that is a huge other reason why I dont want to buy multiplats on Xbox One

It is 2013, we should have the option to play console games streamed on a potable device, that is what makes it next gen gaming

Doesn't SmartGlass do that? Essentially a remote-play feature?

Unless you're 6 and your parents tell you to get off the TV, who cares about off-screen play?

No, it adds some light second screen features like using your smartphone to call in an airstrike in the game, but you cannot stream an Xbox One game and play it on a portable device in any form

Why and who's it a problem for?

The WiiU pad has a horrible battery life for gaming in my opinion (I live with my brother, he has a WiiU) and the PSvita is the same... and it would cost you $200 to get a Vita.

Off screen doesn't matter to a lot of people, most prefer to play console games on a TV.

As important as this might be to you, it just seems like a really small thing to pick at this console for, or even post a topic here about.

Oh. Well, in that case:

Off TV play is incredibly important. That's why the Wii U and and Vita are just flying off the shelves.

Hint: No they're not.
