in what way is the x1 future proof?
MS is aiming the X1 for the digital age, which is coming whether you like it or not. Plus it will happen sooner than you think. Heck look at how far tech as come since the beginning of last gen.
This is exactly why only 21 countries are available for the launch. They need to make sure the Live functanalities have decent enough servers in the area to effectively run with how online heavy the system is it will take time to get setup. Probably the biggest reason for Asia not getting it`s launch until sometime in 2014.
Never thought of it like that, good call.
