This the ultimate kicker. Who in their right mind wants to come in here or even bastion this kind of practice? You know when we would have found out about this "awesome" feature? When the system shipped and folks would just have to invest in the system to find out.
How many misleading's or outright false truths has MSFT exposed themselves to here?
The could have just been simple and been about as forthcoming as Sony with PS4 but they took this as far as it went and basically expect people to just give them money now. I hope some on here, even the most staunch supporters, can have some common sense and not support this level of deception. I suspect this isn't even the depths of the stupidity we would have to deal with on Xbone too.
Sony was held accountable for their arrogance and 599.99 and this deal here with MSFT is worse than that to me. There were far worse implications for the consumer and on top of this, we were walking on egg shells whenever we wanted clarity to these stupid policies to begin with.
