Don't care about always online, why would I, it's 2013? They should of been doing auto updates and stuff like that already at times other then when I want to play a game. If internet goes down I can still play offline anyways so what is the big deal?
Don't care about sharing games with friends. 90% of my gaming buddies are not my neighbors or even live in the same town let alone state as me, they don't have any problems playing the games they want to or ones we play together. Plus over half of my games are digital anyways, not physical, I don't share them along to other machines. Not a big deal to me.
No, you can't play your games when your internet goes down. Your offline single player games will not function without an internet connection on the Xbox One.
You don't care that without an internet connection your games won't work and that the physical discs are nothing more than a license to play the game? You do realize that the moment the Xbox One goes offline, 0 of your games will work, right? I can go play any NES, SNES, 64, PS1, PS2, Xbox, Wii, PS3/360 etc games whenever I want, because I have the games and they work offline, Xbox One games won't.
You don't "own" your games on the Xbox One and they are only available for the limited amount of time MS will allow those servers to be up. You are renting a game for $60 that can only be played so long as MS feels they want to keep that server online.
As for sharing games with friends, it means you can't rent or buy/sell used games anymore. How would you feel if you could no longer buy/trade used vehicles? Furniture? everyday objects? MS is anti-consumerist.
Very, very few people are happy with the Xbox One, in fact you are the only person I have seen that is even remotely happy with it, which is fine that's your opinion, but never thought I'd see someone who actually supports their anti-consumer nonsense.
