Why can't a game console in 2013 play a game out of the box?

there is no actual argument, but most defenders seem to think the topic at hand concerns day-1 patches as a whole, not this particular case of insane stupidity on the part of Microsoft

If you don't have any access to internet, don't buy it. If you do have access to internet, shut up.

Stupid is as stupid does. These console manufacturers are acting really stupid these days, they like don't care about your user experience at the end of the day by gimping their system's of features and seemingly playing childish mind games straight out of the box.

It is a hostile relationship starting day 1. Not a good environment for anyone at the end of the day. These little things are what eventually comes back to bite the industry when it seemingly least expects it.

Don't have Internet? Buy a 360.

In the famous words of Adam Orth, "Deal with it!"

But seriously, both of these consoles are pretty bad without internet. X1 won't function until you update it, and 90% of PS4's entire game lineup is download-only indies.

Yeah. All I hear are people saying how they want an x1 desperately. They love the games, controller, new kinect immersion, dedicated servers, but that damn day one patch just ruins the whole thing. Then they go off and pre order a PS4.

If only we lived in a patchless world.
If only.

This isn't about having access to the internet, seems people are ignorant. People expect to be able to play their play things immediately out of the box, that is and will always be the expectation. Deal with it.

You don't like it, then don't go into manufacturing. Microsoft and Sony are going to recieve negative feedback from this crap at the end of the day for the unspoken and unadvertised hassle. People mention these negative things to other people all the time, which only further slows down their sales. Since now it is associated to such stupid BS out of the box.

It is like they don't deal with people or understand long standing human behaviours.
