Well at least until MS (hopefully) backs off having fees for using used/your friend's games and that extremely confusing "not always on but once a day internet connectivity" feature.

No, I'm not going to boycott.

No. And most people who claim they are going to boycott it will end up buying it anyway.

I wouldn't call it a boycott. I don't plan on buying one though. I barely ever use my 360 as it is, and only things I don't like have been added to the new xbox. Other than better graphics and faster loading of course.

I am already boycotting this product which isn't out yet and will only be available in limited quantities for a while after launch because I enjoy pointless gestures.

I will wait until after E3 to decide when I am buying, but I know I will be getting it at some point down the line. E3 will just help me decide which one I am buying at or around launch.

quite.

Though I do enjoy it when people boycott things that they can't even buy, way to send a message.

Why bother? If one doesn't want to buy something, that is nothing special.

I won't be "boycotting", but if things go the way they look to be going I won't buy one. I have no delusions about making a statement, I simply have no interest in owning a console that I don't get to actually own games for.

Who decides to open an account in a website they have never been before (probably) with that username and then post a thread about boycotting a new console? Who does that?

If you really wanted to mess with them you should just save a bunch of money and keep buying Xbox Ones at launch but no software; they sell for less then they cost to make, after all.

If they remove that tidbit then you still have to switch discs. Not having to switch discs is much more important than slightly cheaper games from illegitimate sources.

I should also mention that I want to be able to play offline for an extended period of time on whatever whim without having to check in with big brother regularly. Basically the Xbone has some stuff going against it right now that would be a deal breaker for me if these things are implemented.

But boycott? Don't be silly.

I will be boycotting every new system until they have games I want to play. I will also continue boycotting bananas because of their mushy texture and vaguely dick-like shape.

Boycott... mm not really

I just won't buy they stupid thing.. all this years internet evolution has made me think I don't need cable anymore, now XBOX is trying to sell me into cable. FUCKING NO.

also I don't even live in the US, so most of the "fancy" features are meaningless to me.

I don't "boycott" products based on the pricing structure a company adopts. Pricing structure simply informs my purchasing decisions in so much as it affects the value of the purchase. I feel the same way about always online, DRM, and legacy support issues because these all possibly devalue the product by limiting my accessibility.

I reserve boycotts, which I delineate to mean not purchasing from a specific company until a specific policy is modified, to companies with policies that I disagree with from a moral standpoint. From what I've seen so far, the most serious moralistic consequence of this policy is the possible penalty incurred by not-for-profit organizations receiving second-hand video games as donations. However, I would like to believe this could be an easily solvable problem with special licensing solutions for these organizations.

I'm not going to buy it, but I'm not going to boycott it. I just don't need more than one console and one is clearly better for me.

i like the idea of being able to install the games to my HD and not need a disk to play.

but that is clearly open to abuse. (ie lending my game to all my friends so they can install it too... for free)

on balance.. my friends can buy there own dam games

This... I don't think of myself as being such a staunch Xbox customer that I think not buying their new system would constitute a boycott.

I am either not buying an Xbox One because I am boycotting it or because I don't give a shit. I will let you decide the answer...

No. I will probably get both consoles. Even if I hated this new xbox, I just don't think boycotting it would be worth the effort.

And pointless gestures would include your post in my thread. You're really good at this.

I'm boycotting cots.

But I probably won't buy one until a few years after release.
