At one point my 360 wouldn't connect or stay connected for like a month and it'd been like 6 months since I was on it last, but at least I could still play, so my achievements didn't get a time stamp big whoop(who's smart arse idea was that?), I don't think I wanna risk my Xbox One not connecting and not being able to play when I want, no pre-owned/lending I could live with, no one else I know would have gotten an xbox anyway, but not being able to play because I can't connect to the tinterwab is retarded.

We have 22million broadband subscribers in the UK and its growing by ~2% a year. I'd also imaging that high proportion of gamers have broadband. Source

I'd be quite happy with this if they increased the 24hr period for checking in with the servers, to maybe a week...? With the ability to prolong this once a year for your whole library (upto a month) to cover off people moving house.

One bit which is unclear for me is the transferring the licence of a game to someone else, it states that it can only be done once, but does this mean I can only transfer a licence one (i.e. I can only give it to one person, but they would be free to transfer it to someone else) or that once that licence has been transferred it can never to transferred again? (i.e. the person I gave it too cannot give it to someone else or trade it in).

Complete and utter arse, Microsoft. Firstly, I couldn't give a toss about controlling/augmenting my TV via your Bone. Secondly, and this goes out to all publishers too, if you expect me to sick up 50 or 60 quid for a new game, you better f**king let me sell the last one to part fund it - and not just at your tightly controlled list of approved "dealers".
Cue more MS multi-headed mixed messages as the scramble to control the discussion and outrage.
