That mandatory launch-day system update will be huge and time-consuming.

A bunch of morons will damage their TV screens while playing Kinect Sports, and this will get mainstream coverage.

Let's face it: There hasn't been a smooth, problem-free console launch since the PS2/GameCube/Xbox generation. Wii U and PS4 are just cementing the fact that launching a console these days is always going to come with some kind of concern along the way. So what's going to be XB1's standout problem?

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

Who knows - something, probably not major. A small percentage of unlucky people may get a faulty console. Some of the launch titles may get mediocre to low scores.....

But I expect it to be relatively smooth.

I'll be really, really amazed if the Xbox One launch comes off without so much as a hitch. It'd be the first time for that in over a decade of console launches.

- Bricked systems from the day one patch
- Tons of returns from angry consumers who get the console how and realize its nothing but a paperweight until the patch is done.
- A new RROD from this underclocking crap they added. Probably to do with voltage this time, not heat.
- Live will crash and people will be unable to update and have a dead console
- The poor souls that bought RYSE and Killer Instinct and realize they are complete crap

Thats just a few issues I see happening.

That last one seems unlikely to me on Killer Instinct at least. All the early word is positive, although the pricing model still understandably sticks in a lot of craws.

Yeah, I'm thinking Ryse will be getting Knack-level reviews.
