Yeah my comment was more based on what Rob said...  The Kinect isn't dictating things with the system, though Jeff's suspicions probably are fair and it could somehow shut down the entire house once you hook it up and never stop growing.

That said, with the reversal, I'm back to leaning towards an Xbox whereas I had been leaning to a PS4, only because I like Xbox's controller better and HALO's a series I've come to enjoy.  $100 is worth that to me...  The Kinect's not an issue, my 360 hooks up to it for some reason I can't explain yet and since I have one that's a good thing I guess, and I don't stream movies anyhow. :)  I just use Comcast for renting junk, if I ever do.

I'm pretty happy...  I was very outraged, angry, disappointed, whatever, but I've been swayed so far.  By I figure Spring I'll get a new system.  Doubt earlier, but you never know.  I wanna see both though, and how either one does.

Was streaming Netflix just now when guess what, Xbox Live goes down. Which got me thinking, what happens when Microsoft's servers screw up and can't connect to our systems? Is the system still playable?

The system is still playable since the always on item has been turned off. Netflix is in every home eletronic device around. If the XBox won't let me watch a movie because I have too many people in the room, then I'll turn on my bluray player or use the Netflix built into my TV.

However, here are some articles about why Microsoft's backpedal is a bad idea and what we are sacrificing. Microsoft just can't win with tech journalists can they?

Trying typing phrase "The xbox one is" into both Bing and Google and see what happens.

I'd love to, but that would require using Bing.

LOL! You have to put the "The" in front of the phrase to get the "amazing" out of Bing.

Now if they can make it backwards compatible, I might just buy one.
