This is not a trolling thread as I am a huge Xbox fan. But let's honestly break down the current rumors and look at just how anti consumer and just downright awful it sounds.
1. Always online -doesn't affect me at all as I have amazing internet but it completely screws millions of potential buyers. Especially those in rural areas or emerging markets
2. Wont play pre owned games - Idon't believe this one bit but still there's rumors everywhere
3. Weaker than the PS4 -And not just slightly. If the rumored GPU is indeed true its significantly weaker with slower RAM
4. Kinect required - I like Kinect but I also recognize theres a huge chunk of gamers who find it useless
5. Continued Pay to Play online - Not a big deal considering how good Live has been but with PS Plus offering rediculous deals Live is getting harder and harder to justify
I realize these are entirely rumors and ALL of it could be fake but so far theres quite a bit of momentum behind these rumors and if they turn out to be true I can safely say Im abandoning the Xbox brand
