Fact is if everything including my internet is working like it should the Xbox One will offer a superior experience to the PS4.

The cloud and the 100% included with every single console Kinnect will push the boundries of gaming further then the PS4 will be able to.

People might hate it now and make fun of Microsoft but 4 years from now all of you will be dying to jump on the bandwagon OR at the very least whine for Microsoft to bring these abilities to your PC.

Not every feature relies on having an internet connection, so why should everything be disabled when it's gone?

Edit: This is like the calculator on my phone not working if I don't have cell service.

I don't think so mate. The majority dislike Windows 8 and their Tablets/Smartphones are a joke. There isn't anything Microsoft is making lately that is screaming to us to jump ship so I don't see the jealousy here. If I was to move to Windows 8, I would still make it work like Windows 7 (as I just refuse to use it the way they have it set for stock).

Kinect seems to be a bigger hindrance than a benefit so far by my looks. I don't really need a glorified motion camera to improve what I can do in a game than using a controller. Besides, I don't have a dedicated living room where I can even use the damn thing and I game with a headset so I don't need the voice commands nor the body moving ability to play. In fact, I want to see more support in using Keyboard/Mice inputs.

Furthermore, the cloud is still a work in progress in my opinion. It isn't that useful to me at all since it gives little user control on what to siphon from the cloud to locally (thinking of Google Android stock with even just contacts). Furthermore for the moments when you aren't on the Internet, you can't play crap cause everything isn't saved locally that is important for you to continue playing (saved games). I found that to be annoying in situations with Steam Cloud. Unless they give you full control of what you want to establish in the Cloud and not, I find it really annoying.

So I will put it this way:

You are entitled to your own opinion, however based on how you wrote that as well as your fellow supporters and Microsoft, the tone you guys write out your hatred for the PS4 is very arrogant and childish. It is that kind of pretentious manner that now pushes me away from the X1 even further.

I will say that if you like the X1 regardless of the bickering no one is stopping you from getting it. However, it is clear that the buyers of the consoles are officially in different niches with PS4 buyers having their reasons to and X1 their reasons to.

However, don't assume all of us that don't jump ship with you will regret it though. Enjoy your X1 with their niche fanboys/girls, but don't act as you think is the best for all gamers.

kinect is a gimmick

and the cloud isn't going to be used well by console developers
console development is about cloning last year's hit

the cloud is amazing and has potential for innovation. we'll see that realized on PC
