Just got xbox one.. Its literally a paperweight... No internet renders it useles
Bluray app?? Are you serious?
Yea both have it. I read an article somewhere (can't remember at the website) saying that the reason at least xbox does it is because then they don't have to pay some royalty. I can't remember the exact specifics but that's why you don't have the app is because if you don't download it it saves MS money so they don't have it preloaded.

Yea that's true.
Alright thanks. One more day till I get verizon fios... I am like a little kid waiting for this internet to be installed...
You people are using the wrong comparisons... First it was buying a car that requires gas, then it's a cellphone that requires a data plan... These are all so bad. They always required that type of stuff.
Why? Where have you been the past year? Ok. Since I have not seen it yet because I am only on page 18 I will explain. When first announced, the Xbone REQUIRED a constant online connection. People cried about it. MS tasted your tears and responded by removing all the evil requirments. Since they were deep into the developement of the console, it was far too late for a hardware fix. So they needed a day one patch to remove all the stuff the butthurt masses wanted gone. This was a HUGE change so the system no longer has the functions it was first intended to have. You know, all those things that do not work any more without the update. So...to get the changes in place and make the thing work a day one install, which requires the internet, is required. This literally has been all anyone has been talking about since a month after E3 last year! It is the fastest fix they could have used to get the xbone to market when they did. if they had to change the hardware the thing still would not be on store shelves.
You should return it and say F*** off MS
reading though all of this whole thread shows why there's so much wrong with these newer generations of kids/ young adults... and it's coming from both sides of this "discussion".
the older folks reading this thread probably see what I'm seeing...

Except TC SAID HE KNEW IT REQUIRED an internet connection for a day one patch. He just didn't know it required it to operate... What the hell do you people think REQUIRED means?

It made sense then, it doesn't now. The xbox ones are already imaged with software before they are shipped, all the models made after the first run should of been produced with an updated image that already had the day 1 patch built in.
