Did you make the decision of buying or not buying the Xbox One based only on it's merits as a gaming and entertainment device or did you also consider other factors not directly related to entertainment such as privacy issues, supporting MS policies & actions or buying American?

I only preordered it after they removed all of their controversial policies. The moment those come back, I'm selling it and permanently moving to PC gaming.

TC, i dont understand what you are asking in the poll so i will just answer the topic title. I dont see how the xbox one can be anything else other than a gaming and entertainment device.

My XBO is my significant other. The prudes in DC won't allow this type of union but we know what we have together and that is all that matters.

There have been many posts about MS collecting information on Xbox One users, their controversial policies and ways of doing business. These are not directly related to it's capabilities as an entertainment device. For example whether MS collects marketing information about you with the Kinect or not doesn't directly affect the devices gaming capabilities. But MS collecting that information could affect the decision of whether someone purchases a Xbox One.

Basically the Xbox One is not just purely a gaming and entertainment device because it has other purposes as well such as collecting information and advertising.

Also the Xbox One is an "American" console. This is also not related to it's capabilities as a gaming machine but it could affect the decisions of some.
