@jerseyscum: I can attest to the fact that this is an accurate portrayal of the North in the 1990s, right down to the 4 sole inhabitants and their quasi-Irish/Jamaican accents. I'm not sure why you'd have a problem with it.
@blu3v3nom07: Personally, I live in America and xbox one could launch with all that functionality in one territory. As long it's mine, I'm fine. Yeah, if it was something that actually affected me in some way, it would be worth getting worked up about. People who take the time on the Internet to mock a company or product because of decisions that have zero impact on them are a waste of space.
And what does that make you, considering you've just taken the time on the internet to bitch about something that has zero impact on you?
Was really disappointed when I first started it up and it wasn't the XMB. Makes sense because of the touchscreen though.
After a while with it, I actually really like it. You're able to customise the backgrounds and organise the icons however you want, so you can make it look pretty sweet if you put some time into it. Square tiles are about the only thing I wish it had.
