I never knew that disliking a consumer product means that they are afraid of it, news to me.
I don't see anything to dislike about the Xbox One.
DRM or whatever is at the request of the game developers. Not Just Microsoft.
At the same time Both Sony and Microsoft have said it is up to each developer to make that choice.
If you were a game developer what choice would you make. Would you like people ripping off your game.
People should start paying for games, regardless Video games don't come out of thin air.
It takes millions to make a videogame.
If you don't want to pay the premium price for games then just play those cheap indie games or those games on ipad.
"At the same time Both Sony and Microsoft have said it is up to each developer to make that choice."
In Xbox One installation and online registration is mandatory for all retail games.
I saw the installation, but where did microsft say you have to register the game.
And if so what is the big deal I doubt you will have to fill out a form. Just probably hit the register icon.
Once again games cost money game developers are losing billions from used games, something needs to change to make the business more profitable.
Once again put yourself in the developers shoes.
I might sound corny, but what I am saying is reality. It is a business.
"I saw the installation, but where did microsft say you have to register the game."
You have to register all new games because if not then you can borrow the same disc to all your friends and they can play too.
The registration is how MS makes sure you don't borrow the same disc to 20 other users. The disc only works with the registered user.

Please don't try to rationalize and accept this, this is bad for all consumers if you let them get away with this they will push you even more, you have alternatives in Nintendo and Sony like you said this is a business and the competition are a good alternative which doesn't use this anti consumer restrictions. I all for making this industry better and more profitable but not by putting restriction on consumers, Xbox One multimedia features looks great for example.
