You don't need to tell me anything. I'm not going to put an always online camera and microphone in my house that I don't have any control over. The "backpeddaling" as you call it is hilarious, M$ didn't give the customers what they wanted, they gave the customers a lashing, and said pipe down or we'll take even more away from you. The hype and the features NEVER
were in parity. The game sharing was a watered down DEMO, that you had to own the game to be able to "share." The hardware is sub par, its going to have a very large memory bottleneck, for a rather small graphics processor.
Oh yea, and the DRM stepping back.. isn't a victory for the consumer either, everything M$ produces is tainted. It always comes with a catch and that catch is always worse then what you lose. The problem with the mindless sheep who will buy this system is they don't realize they haven't changed Xones direction, they just changed the face of the EXACT same beast, under the hood things will be exactly the same.
