    This one's my favorite:

    and how they said they'll support people having 'real images' of them as their avatar. I don't think their target audience would not abuse that.

    I just had a terrible thought. Having a mandatory Facebook account linked to your console.

    But it doesn't play RDR so it sucks.

    It also looks like a VCR

    Am I the only one actually liking that it looks like a VCR? Anyways

    I don't know what the fanboys have to say, but the disadvantages of the XBOX1 are numerous. No sort of "advantage" can overcome the disadvantages. I don't even think there's any sort of "advantage" here anyways.

    The need for an internet connection almost 24/7 is deadly for any "gamer" (or television watcher) if the internet goes out or something. The installation thing leaves "gamers" having to wait for install to complete before actually being able to play. Installation will also take up hard drive space. Kinect is always active? Why? That's creepy.

    If I remember correctly, Microsoft wanted to patent/implement the idea that the Kinect would be able to guess/determine the ages of people in the room, and would then block/allow content being viewed or played based on that.

    Looks like this is what they were trying to do.

    I don't know about you, but I certainly can't tell the difference between a sixteen and a seventeen year old (for M rated games)
    And of course there are always tons of people who look older/younger than they are.

    You can always perform a manual override and cover the kinect sensor with post it notes, or turn it around so it faces a wall, and maybe tape a picture of yourself on the wall.
