Don't act like there has never been a time when you came home from work and wanted to play a game, only to find out they were doing a patch or hotfix and it annoyed you.. thats just utter bs if its coming from someone who games regularly.
So if microsoft's power goes out I will only have 24 hours of offline gaming before I can game no more. I'll keep that in mind, but won't stress on it.

And I won't act like there has never been a time when I came home from work and wanted to play a game, only to find out they were doing a patch or hotfix and it annoyed me because it hasn't, at least not on Xbox, Sony locked me and a few million others out I recall for a time.

Still, I'm not seeing any real barriers to getting what I want.

In addition - if your own internet goes down, you can't play.

Moving house? - can't play until the internet is sorted!

Travel a lot as part of your job? - Screwed, unless hotel has wifi, we all know what free wifi is like!

Live in area with a bad internet connection? - Screwed!

You don't think that the inability to rent/borrow games from people is a big deal? That publishers can now restrict used sales? Microsoft is literally making this all about squeezing every extra dollar out of the "lol first world I have so much money problems" crowd.

They are literally just restricting the hell out of their console and making it about how much money they can get from everyone. Sony is going to murder them if they don't have these restrictions.

To each their own I suppose. I just don't want to throw money away because I have it.

If Sony comes out and doesn't have these ridiculous restrictions, there is no reason to stick with Xbox.
In the past, I don't know how many years, the only time my internet, in any of the last 3 or 4 places I've at, has gone down was when the power was also out. I'm not real worried about it.

I don't take my PS3 or 360 on trips. They stay home.

If publishers allow someone to borrow or trade in or rent or whatever games, great. I don't do a lot of borrowing, trading or renting. Not a lot of problems for me.

I'd be throwing my money away if I didn't intend to game and bought a gaming system. If I buy a new console, I'll be gaming.

I don't recall the last time I gamed when I didn't have an internet connection. My internet only is off hen my power is out, not ideal gaming time. If I can't afford my internet I have bigger problems then needing to play Xbox games after 24 hours of offline gaming, and I don't game for 24 non-stop hours also, I hope someone shoots me in the face if I did.

The part about Microsoft owning the games you buy and only allowing them to be temporarily played is utter bull shit right? Where is the proof that people are going to have a only a limited amount of time to play a game they purchase?

I don't know where you get your info but it's on the publishers if people can buy or sell their used games. And again, I don't really care.

1st world problems don't have me to bent out of shape about of any of this. If they have games I wanna play, I'm going to be able to play them.
No, Microsoft can choose when and when you cannot play your game. The game ONLY runs if the Xbox One online servers are activated. The very moment Xbox One goes offline, your games no longer function. You are buying the ability to play their game, you are not buying and "owning" the game, you are buying the rights to play it for however long they decide to keep the Xbox One servers activated.

There's a large portion of the population both in America and around the world that do not have 24 hour stable internet connections. When the internet drops, so does your Xbox, it becomes a brick, a useless piece of plastic that doesn't play games.

MS has confirmed that you can only sell/trade a game to someone who has been on your friends list for 30 days or more, and only one time. Renting games is gone, you will not be able to rent Xbox One games because of how the console is designed. You will not be able to go on Ebay and sell your used games, you will not be able to go into your local game store that isn't a GameStop (and Gamesotp isn't even confirmed yet) and trade/sell your games to them, or buy used games from them.

First world problems? Try wanting to actually own the product you buy and have access to it whenever you feel like or sell it to whomever you wish because, after all, you bought it.

Like I said, to each their own. If you can live with the limitations and it works for you then great. But if Sony doesn't go down this road, there would be no reason I would entertain getting an xbox.

Well, the odds are good I'll end up with both at some point, but it's about purchasing entertainment, if they have something that looks fun and I want to play it, I will. I've yet to see a significant barrier that will not allow that to happen. Internet connectivity, not a problem, not worried about it. Trading/borrowing,/renting/etc., Typically don't, I'm not worried about it.
