@daveyo520: Ever play a bad demo, but then try the full game and realize its way better? Same in vice versa, it was a good demo, but then the full game is a sack of shit (Sonic 06)

I can see where the privileged wouldn't find this an issue? But, there are many people who will find this a complete turn off and will probably not buy the new Xbox if this is true. So, the Xbox audience will be even more exclusive. Always on Internet, able to buy any game they want at full price, pay a $60 fee or more a year to use basic services, have devices at an arm's length to have a substitute internet hotspot for their console? Hell if you can afford all that, then no. THIS will not be an issue.

Always on Internet - I never once had a situation where I couldn't get internet and I move around a lot. Got an unlocked android phone with $30 plan that comes with unlimited data. Use it to tether when I need be at solid fast speeds that can download entire steam games in an hourish.

Able to buy games full price - Dude, in the world of Amazon and other online stores, why would you buy games at launch when you know a week or two later a game will get 10-50% cut in price. There's zero reason to buy games the day they come out unless you really want it.

Hotspot Devices - It's 2013...who doesn't have some sort of smart phone that can tether? I'm not counting kids or people without jobs. Then gaming next-gen shouldn't be a priority for you, there's a shit ton of games on discount all the time on current gen and PC.

Don't assume everyone has these devices just because its 2013. I'm just saying.

Never had a situation with internet? Good for you.
Buying games at low prices? I'd rather try it first. Have a buddy lend it to me for a couple of days. In other words, pay nothing... owe him a $5 pizza

Even if details emerge, I still end up waiting a year for them to iron out any launch troubles, like server/firmware issues.
