Microsoft has posted a
series of articles (thanks Stumpus) detailing exactly the way that
the Xbox One will handle a permanent internet connection requirement,
how it allows users to trade and sell games and exactly how private
your Kinect will let your house be. Many of the most titillating and
specious rumors ab

So you have to "check-in" every 24hr. in order to play games ?
And if there is no internet connection where you take your console then just watch porn and movies...
Jesus, ill skip this generation too... obviously. And the console fanboys will eat this shit too... pity!

Let's see if Sony goes for the same shit too. I expect they will because what MS is doing is doing it in favor of the game dev's - more money for all.
If Sony dont offer them developers such "cloud shit control protection" theyll stop developing for PS i guess. But its a GO for all the indie companies. Let's see how smart Sony might get...

Yep keep spouting.. gonna continue to influence others NOT to get this shiet.

Office 2013 - Overall nothing to convince me it's a must have or even nice to have upgrade. Besides the pricing model for home users is completely horrible. STAY AWAY! Stick with Office 2010 if you need it for home use.

MS New GUI (all products) - I have the impression I need to click twice as much than before to get things done I'm doing for 2(?) decades now Sad

Exactly. Pure despotism. Though there is millions of morons that think M$ can't do a thing wrong. Remember, they fucked up pc gaming with buying out every major game dev for exclusives for their shit Eggbox. Yet these PC owners blame other console manufacturers that just happen to not even MAKE games for Windows piss, except for their own hardware.
People need a fucking brain transplant that support Eggbox and M$....

To be fair, Gates is no longer associated with running the company, making product decisions, etc. What you're seeing with the Xbox One and last year with the Window 8 fiasco is the club-handed touching of the raging dickhead known as Steve Ballmer. The man is a screaming, ranting asshole and a perfect example of everything that's wrong with the CEO "good old boy" system in modern American business. He'll drive the company right into the ground if the shareholders don't have the sense to run him off.

Notice how Sony is being very, very quiet. They are following the old military axiom: "Never interrupt your enemy while he's making a mistake."

So after one trade-in or given away to a friend, for a substantial loss.. the games then end up in landfill. Every Eggbox [censored] will acquire a library of games that will obviously be redundant and worthless. No value to move on. So shelves fill with one-stop, 'give once to friends' or buy at full price and permanently make a loss. This is against everything environmental. Would like to know what the government thinks about all this dumping?
This is like buying a printer that you can't change the ink in. Either give it to a friend or chuck it in landfill...

People who buy into this will be doing it at night with hoods on. You would seriously need to have issues to think this was ok. Parents will go mad when they realise that 'Johnny' has duped them into a permanent loss contract. Lol

The trouble with this is America have got used to downloading games on Eggbox or STEAM for a while now. So M$ are banking on that clientele being adopters. Of course as many have said, they have limited bandwidth or don't like the 'check in'. But one thing has changed, the, end of physical games on that console is what is being championed ; all be it subtly. M$ are killing off game shops to claim 100% profit on downloads. People are idiots, many will see it as not an issue.
Hey ho...

Windows phone is actually decent imo. It's bloated and always hungry but I really like how it works in everyday use. App store is shit in comparison to ios or android but it seems to work better than android and a smidge better than ios with normal simple tasks. Don't get me wrong though there are downsides not to mention the fact that 7.5 and previous windows phones haven't ever really caught on for good reason.

The rest I agree on verbatim. We have this large corp that basically owns the PC space OS wise and yet they ignore gaming and anything that could help people adopt an xbox. Imagine a windows based game box. MS could've rode the steam train and had a virtual store on PC and console and even phones/tablets. Gaming on windows only devices remains sacrosanct. Now linux and mobile OS gaming is going everywhere and they have almost no horses in this race.
