I can understand wanting to be more like Steam. But with the check ins it's a bit of a turn off. And if it doesn't have wicked digital sales to accompany it it's completely useless.

Exactly. Steam is on an open platform with competition from GOG.com and others. Xbox One isn't that, at all.

No. I already knew they were going to do the same thing as their software on PC. It is why I never spent a dime on the 360 or their paid service model. And because of shortsighted consumers Microsoft can now leverage gamer accounts and hold them hostage in exchange for more unagreeable gaming conditions.

I don't see how people can pay for a service that attaches everything you bought access to to an agreement that has no compromise other than "Do it our way or lose access to your 1000 game investment".
