really how many of you ACTUALLY constantly travel out of the country long enough that you REALLY suffer clinical withdraw that will kill you if you cant log in to the Xbox 1 for a day a week, or 2????
OMG CALL THE NATIONAL GUARD WE HAVE OUTBREAKS OF WITHDRAW<].
get over it, use a VPN, make your IP what ever the F u want.
sure its a bit odd that MS did that, but different countries actually ban certain things, with games movies etc. not to mention that different economical reasons or licenses may prevent certain products (including games) be be sold in a a certain country, (or access to those games, )
And to the fellow service members (I too was in the navy and did deployments for 6+ months) you will have regular internet access, BUT you cannot really hook anything up to it (security issues) so while they couldn't use the XB1 the choice we made to join the military involves sacrifices, so quite complaining about YOU VOLUNTEERING (I joined on my own accord) you are out to sea for half a year in 2-3 year period, unless you are unlucky to have 2 deployments with in 6months months of coming back.
its still a sacrifice. while it sucks that you cannot play the games if offline ( i still think that the single player games will still be able to be played offline) its the whole media center thing that needs the connectivity. we will see soon tho.
BUT then this is your reason to go PS4, 99% of the games will be on both. so really big deal? so IF you cannot use it then switch, that's why companies can do this, cus you all complain then STILL BUY THE crap.Edited by Fieldsweeper - 6/15/13 at 5:51am
