You should check out scaling of share mission critical systems the fact is they don't add up until the work load consumes lots of time which can be simply outsourced at later recollected and put together into the final image. (for people that are not familiar with this it is a lot like F@H or other distributed computing)
Common sense tels us that it won't work the way it should.
But of course MS can show us wrong but until then our skepticism is justified.
I know the PS4 has a superior hardware, thank you. I simply like the new approach Microsoft is taking with the Xbox One. I like a part of the new approach at least. I didn't give a damn about the sports, COD and Live TV but I did like the Kinect that supposedly recognizes facial expressions and pin-point voice recognition. If these features are implemented properly, this could change the way we game and it would give me a reason to get this console. I don't care about the PS4 because a high-end PC kills it, I don't exactly see why they flaunt their hardware like it was something impressive when it's been a standard for over two years in high-end PC's.
As for the second part of your post, you'll have to reword that for me as I'm not sure we're on the same page.
People aren't being skeptical, they're throwing it out the window before it's even released. It's a refreshing idea and it could be great if it works. I remain optimistic but still reserve my judgement for later. I don't whine like a spoil child claiming the same could have been done by making the console 4x more powerful(making it 4x more expensive in the process).
Edit: And to be honest, a part of me thinks Microsoft will royally screw up the idea.
