I think I missed the other 9 people, because I have no clue of what you are referencing. Other threads on the same subject or something like that?
Sorry for the confusion, but your post leaves no real information about what you are even talking about...
As far as the XBOX One goes... I wouldn't purchase one now, or later, after seeing what their original plans for the system were.
These restrictions and requirements were absolutely real and MS was intending to implement them, had there not been an early, and severe, backlash
from the consumer market. They are back-peddling now, trying to salvage what's left of their disasterous launch party, but their intentions are clear.
Anyone who is still considering an XBOX One should also be considering how long it will be until MS re-issues the restrictions and requirements that
were originally planed for the console. It would be naive to think they have completely abandoned that marketing model and it will never be
Their intentions are out there and, even though they are no longer applied, I will not take the chance of being hosed several months down the road.
This debacle kinda reminds me of the 'Coke Classic' flop several years ago, the one that allowed Pepsi to explode in popularity and profitability.
