Default Will you still buy the Xbox One regardless?

Obviously there is much hype going on right now about the PS4 and how it took over E3. Personally, none of those "problems" Microsoft has revealed will actually negatively impact my gaming experience. My gaming systems are always connected, anyway, and I pretty much stay away from the used games market overall. Those two things alone make these "problems" go away for me. However, I do understand it will negatively impact many gamers out there, but is this not something that Microsoft can change or fix at a later time?

To be honest, this is the way everything is headed. Soon in the future, everything will be connected, with new technology making the computer chip smaller and cheaper, everything will eventually have internet access at all times. Everyone see's this as a deal breaker, I see it as being ahead of its time. I'd guess that by the time we have a new generation of consoles revealed after the Xbox One and PS4, this "always connected" status will be normal. At the rate which technology is advancing, I don't see why this is actually a deal breaker.

Also, it's kind of the fault of the pirate community, don't you thinK?

I agree and yeah, I'm actually going to pre order it (if I can tomorrow) when I go to BestBuy to check some stuff out.

All the games that I saw were pretty cool but the two that I really want to get are TitanFall and Killer Instinct. I do plan on getting the next Halo but since there wasn't any gameplay for it, it isn't in my priority list.

Definitely not buying it. Hope they don't sell a single unit.

@mike, I'm well aware of that. Doesn't bother me a single bit.

I can't play Sim City 5 on my pc without internet connection, should we just stop buying certain PC games?

I don't get the hate for it. I understand if you opt out of buying the Xbox One because it is inconvenient and you don't always have your console connected, but why such shitty attitudes towards Xbox for it? It isn't something new, and it most definitely isn't Xbox's fault for it.

I also don't understand how a certain game "blowing your mind" will make it worth the purchase, since you know, the "problem" is still there. You will still be required to be online to play that same game that will blow your mind...

I guess it just gives people something to talk about.
