Kinect

Whereas the current generation Xbox's Kinect retails for about $100 and --> is is <--essentially superfluous to the functions of the console, the Xbox One's Kinect will be... well, it's required. Yes, the console requires the Kinect to be plugged in to function.

I just wanted to help you

This looks so sleek, I definitely plan on buying it when it does come out. Not sure how wild I am with the whole "Kinect is mandatory" bit but those graphics look super sharp. The whole "no more used games" thing already looks shady to me, as I'm sure someone somewhere will find a way to abuse it, but I have high hopes.

http://kotaku.com/xbox-one-does-require-internet-connection-cant-play-o-509164109 (Xbox One is REQUIRED to be online at least once every 24 hours)
http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/05/21/xbox-one-will-not-function-without-kinect-attached (Can't work without Kinect)


If all of this turns out to be true. Then this console is garbage and makes the WiiU look good.
Gold paywall,used game pay wall,forced kinect and online

Yeah, that's painfully obvious. Might wanna stop spending so much time bashing it & get a new hobby while you wait for the PS4 or good PS3 game, whichever comes first.

The 24 hour limit could literally be anything. It does not mean that the console will become unusable, it may just mean there are certain limitations. In example, perhaps you can not earn achievements or re-name your hard drive. It could mean a complete myriad of things. And anyone acting like they know what is going on is just making an ass of themselves.

Thanks for the info, Slash. Even negative information is important, since it helps the rest of us decide whether or not we really want to buy the finished product. If you already know, then there's really no need to be looking at the comments anyways

Oh someone seems butthurt. o:
I could the same for you, get a new hobby and stop spending
so much time defending a terrible product.
Thank you, I was waiting for someone to say it. This console, while it may seem "new" and "exciting" is in my opinion (I STRESS that this is my OPINION) a GALLOP in the wrong direction. I can understand why Microsoft would be doing things like they are such as "Offline Passes" as I believe DedValve called them. You may not have to always have to be online, but you may still have to be online at times, which is a big no-no for those who don't use/have internet.
Also, looks like they're keeping the gold paywall, another no-no by Microsoft. Heaven forbid they require XBLGold to connect the internet. I tried Xbox360, went to PS3, and I've been impressed by Sony for years.
