Great title lol.

on topic: This does make MS look bad after the reveal. With them desperately pushing for an all digital online console, only to fail and rethink due to negative reactions from gamers and retailers. MS know they got away with a lot with the 360. With rrod, inferior hardware and charging a fee for free apps and multiplayer. They tried to take it a bit further with Xbox one. They failed. MS don't understand It's core fanbase and hopefully they lose bad this gen for underestimating the core gamers voice. Someone at MS will lose their job for not seeing this horrible ideal from miles away.

Your right they don't understand who the core fan base for the system is .. US hardcore gamers want as much freedom as we can get that's more than clear and we all know that!

Thing is the fan base Microsoft wants to go for is not dumb they want to buy a game play for a few weeks trade it in when it does have value and buy another one .. If anything the fanbase that does keep their games is us hardcore gamers and even we don't accept drm ..

So on these day an age the xboxone was gonna fail as it stood maybe by next gen but not on the ps4 xboxone gen
