So xbox one will only work within certain countries, no central or south america and most of asia and europe is also excluded.
Unless they make language-exclusive versions for those regions, otherwise yes you are correct.

no it's due that the xbox one needs a cable service to work and in at least south america, cable services are unpopular, we prefer directv which is satelite based, idk about europe but according to a cousin of mine satelite based services are more popular than cable services.

But PS+ is cheaper and far better value,
Value is a very subjective topic. In my opinion, Xbox live is a lot more valuable than PS+, mainly because of PS's servers. I have had a very bad experience with PS's servers dropping out and being notoriously laggy, so I'd take Live any day simply because it operates a lot better. They've been really clean running with lag only when there's a terrible host on COD or something similar.
You are making the assumption that the PS4's server will be as unreliable as the PS3's. Pretty damn sure they will be as attentive to their now-paying consumers as Microsoft were to their 360 XBL subscribers. I'm optimistic that Sony will make the experience worth the expenditure on the next console, in every way - server most prominently.

It says TV isn't mandatory though, so do you mean you need a certain ISP? I'm not sure why Microsoft- you know what, not even going to start haha.

Actually I was talking about Xbox Live for 360 . I do see what you're saying, it's a misconception to assume both companies will maintain the same internet stature because we simply do not know enough. If Sony does step up their game because of the widening fanbase then I will be very happy for everyone who chose PS+. ^^

Right, it says to receive TV you need a better HDMI Cable, it doesn't say you need to receive TV though. It's just stating a better HDMI cable, other than the minimal necessary one, is needed to connect to the TV. That's how I'm interpreting it, at least, I haven't heard anything else. I'm going to search this up a bit to see if I can find another article that Xbox Live requires a TV connection, that would be something quite new.

RabidChinaGirl, have you heard anything about a mandatory TV connection with Xbox One?

Duncan Idaho, you've got a pretty interesting idea actually, I am really interested to know if TV connection will be mandatory since they've pumped it up so much, so I'm not sure either haha. It'd be very inetersting to find out, I think :3.

It isn't mandatory as the Xbox One is launching in the UK and Europe where the Live TV feature isn't supported and won't work for the foreseeable future. If the TV connection was mandatory then you could strike another 20 countries off that list as Live TV only works in the US.

Ok, that's what I was looking for, thanks. It seems pretty silly now that they were preaching Xbox TV as if it were the next best thing, and only allow it in one if their distribution communities.
