Well, here's the thing, Rob. Remember all the stink over things such as the Kinect "needing" to always be on and the XBone itself "needing" to always be connected to the internet, or at least once a day? And then after people pretty much said that, between that and the $100 premium over the PS4, they wouldn't be getting one, and all of a sudden Microsoft declares that, hey, they changed their minds about that stuff, never mind? That implied that all those "gottas" that were supposedly built into the system were, in fact, toggleable. Which means that they could potentially be toggled back. And combined with the recent thing about LG Smart TVs reporting back on what people watch, and LG's response basically being hey, you clicked through the EULA so fuck you, it all makes me think that MS could try sneaking some of these things back into a "system upgrade."
tl;dr--I still don't trust the fuckers. The only thing I'd mainly want it for is Blu-Ray, and since it won't play 360 games, I may as well get a PS3 when they start getting price-slashed, because that also lets me play The Last of Us.
