The paywall is THE reason why XB1 has failed to attract the casual gamer
M$ has made all the wrong moves this gen.
If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue
Casuals can buy the Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV etc if they want entertainment and they don't have to deal with a ridiculous paywall.

And more expensive than the PS4.
Quite an odd combination but there you go.
It is pretty funny, especially when PS3 has the best Netflix experience.
I guess I will just go with my dish subscription, and keep my old console for another 2 years.
The 3DO, LazerActive among others are prime examples of that "All in one" media centers that were total failures. Overpriced, underpowered but broad promises. The Xbone as of now is not a failure. But I buy systems to play games, not watch TV.
It's a proven failure already. Luckily for the xbone the technology has advanced to where it can be a media hub. But I personally don't care. I'd just want to play games on the stupid thing. The pay wall is a farce and I don't even participate on my 360. I can use 100 other devices to do what it does. And it don't cost me more than what I already pay for the services. So unless the change their grubby, greedy ways. I, as of now have no use for the xbone. I can pass games that I would want. I'm an adult, it's no big deal to me.
The paywall is just one part of the problem.
Good read for anyone not afraid to taste some truth serum.

The main reason is the price casuals arent as concerned with the other stuff they go for whatevers cheaper
No offense but having a PC in the living room looks stupid. Theyre meant for desks and offices, not livng rooms. Tablets are meant for livjng rooms.
I had a laptop hooked up to my TV until I got a smart TV, it was smaller and sleeker than the Xbone and worked far better than and console as a media centre. Never even would open it up as I just had an HDMI cable going from it to the TV. Had a small wireless keyboard for it as well as mouse and a couple controllers synced up for gaming.
So tell me, how is it not for the living room when it worked perfectly and took up less space?
The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.
How useful is the xb1 to someone without gold?
