Instead of getting all up in a fuss over how you believe that Microsoft only wants to target those that have an internet connection, and a solid one at that. Take a step back for a minute and think:
The Wii sold so well because people who would never ever buy a gaming console bought it. The "casual" market, how many of these (and I don't have the statistic either) do you believe have a solid 24/7/365 internet connection? On top of that how many do you believe will know how to utilize that connection?
Instead of just giving vague responses to everything, be direct about what Microsoft's plan with this console seems to be: Sell these exclusively to the East and West coasts of America. These areas have a high population density of almost guaranteed individuals that are always connected to the internet. That is there plan, and there is no reason to be ashamed because of it.
I'm neither angry or defensive, I'm indifferent.
The Xbox 360's target audience is made up of individuals that had an internet connection -- That's a fact.
If I'm marketing a product, I market the product TO my target audience.
Essentially, this entire topic is trying to skew that target audience into being the entire demographic when, it's really not.
If you don't have the internet 24/7/365, don't buy the Xbox One because the product wasn't intended for your use.
Generally people are "upset" about this because they don't have internet but, that's not Microsoft's problem because you're not part of their target audience.
Does it suck for some of you? Sure...But, again, you're not the person they're marketing the system towards so, why the rage in the first place?...Oh, wait, it's because you WANT one?
Well, I want a Gallardo but, I'm not rich enough to buy one -- Maybe I should start a thread about it?

They cover the entirety of my property considering I have a business on site but, quite frankly, I felt it was none of your business. Still don't but, placating you is easier then furthering this specific discussion...
