You are of cause free to choose, we are free people. The thing about the Xbox one succeeding is that, it sets a precedents for other corporations that they can do anything and the consumers will swallow it. Gaming as great, we all love gaming but we have to draw the line somewhere. With the information that Microsoft is the FIRST company to sign up for the NSA thing, I have no idea how anyone can trust Microsoft ever again. Aside from the DRM thing the Xbox one is a great piece of hardware, it is the precedent it sets that is truly terrifying.
And please don't come to me saying "oh don't be so melodramatic!" I remember a couple of years ago with the rise of smartphone, people were saying the government were tracking us and people say those guys are paranoid/crazy. Not so crazy now are they?
Choosing a Xbox One does not make you wrong but I truly believe that in the long run it sets a precedent that will slowly but surely destroy consumer's rights.
heh. Let's not be silly, shinji. As Jon Stewart(and later John Oliver) pointed out in The Daily Show segment, "Good News: You're Not Paranoid", he just knew that people would now be able to use the NSA surveillance and IRS targeting as excuses for legitimizing -any- conspiracy theories or biggest fears some might have, and while there is reason to be concerned about what the NSA is doing(which doesn't have to do with new cellphone technology; it has to do with government overreach in the War on Terror), that doesn't mean any possible fear you could ever have about something is rational or appropriate.
The issue with the Xbox One is whether it's a device with features you want, not whether it's a threat to our very way of life.
