this is a contenuation of Hephasstus topic over in the rappelz forum dealing with not just any ordenary fail's, but epic fail's.
and an example if microsoft's plan's on requireing a constant internet conection to even start it's next generation gameing system after it's curent x-box 360. not only that, but it will have a disconect on anything going if the net conection is bad for around 3+minet's, and specific to disk watermark's to prevent 2nd hand disk based game's, and a required kenect use at all time's as well. a gameing new's report about said thing's, and a link in it to there origenal story can be found at http://www.gamespot.com/news/xbox-720-requires-internet-connection-to-load-games-6406433
While I understand their desire to force users to remain connected to the net (ensuring up-to-date drivers, usage analysis, whatever), until the world is capable of consistent Internet access to every household this is functionally ridiculous. What's their fallback for when their index server goes down? :/
read a day or 2 ago of another epic failure on the x-box one. the hard drive can be replaced with difficulty by removeing several component's for another hard drive that can hold more space, and make the system run faster/better, but doing so will void the warenty.
the playstation 4 on the other hand, incurage's you to slip the easily visable, shiny cover off, unscrew 1 screw, remove the hard drive for a better 1, replace the new drive and cover. and good to go with no warrenty voided.
just read that there is no backword's compatibility with the x-box one currently, and any attempt's to try to make it backward's compatible (includeing unlocking developer's mode) will make it a block, aka useless. article can be found at http://www.gamespot.com/articles/no-you-can-t-make-your-xbox-one-backwards-compatible/1100-6416591/
ps4 on the other hand had limited backword's compatibility out of the box through digital content, with more planed over time.
yet another epic fail, though supposedly small, and being worked on about the x-box one can be found at
