You must be a young gamer. Otherwise you'd understand why people have a problem with the direction that MS is taking the Xbox One.
First they are killing the Rental market. No way are you going to spend $5 to rent a game, then have to pay a fee on top of that to MS ($15-$40?) to be able to play the game on your machine.
They are messing up the Used Game market with the activation fee and the Authorized MS Resellers.
Now, it seems they want publishers to use their "cloud" computing and using online connections for games, even single player. Why? Because if the game has to check in with home, they can record who owns it, and if they person sells it, they can get their cut of the pie.
Do you understand that last sentence? It's about them getting part of the used market money. Nothing else. Not about piracy, not about Jtag's, not about using your console to mess with other people online. It's only about MS getting money for used games.
