Don't understand all the fuss. If it's that big of a deal, don't buy it. Stop crying on the internet
about it requiring an internet connection.
The only people that have a properly legit complaint are those in the military without internet access. But realistically what's to complain about - you don't have
to buy it. The ps4 is avail, the Wii U is avail, PC is available, handhelds are available...etc. Buy one of those..
For those who complain they live in the middle of no where - it's called life. If you want something, move to an area that offers it. I can sit here and complain how it's not fair that in May down in Florida it's already 90 degrees with 80% humidity, or I could deal with it, assess my options and move.
And for those people who say "I own it, I should be able to do whatever I want with it how I want to, etc.!!!!!" Well sure I own my car too, but I sure don't own the roads I drive it on - and what use is a car without roads? Same deal here. You make a choice to drive, you deal with the rules as well. If you choose to buy the Xbone, you choose to accept the 24 hour network connectivity check.
So what's the problem?
Where were all of you when xbox live and games said no 56k users? They did have internet access but it wasn't enough - yet I don't remember this much outrage.
