Why are people complaining about Xbox fans returning to the Xbox? That is the point of changing your console, so people who avoided it for those reasons now have no reason to avoid it. Did you complain about not trading your games or having an unstable connection? Don't worry bro, the Xbox One is fine. Now.   
Why encourage people to hold grudges as if Microsoft were a personal companion? No; Microsoft is a company that develops a product and makes it available for purchase in a competitive market. I personally didn't like the old Xbox One in comparison to the PS4, but I do prefer this Xbox One in comparison to the PS4 now that it seems it won't be such a burden.

I'd be afraid of the last minute changes and since people cannot join a class action lawsuit to ask for reimbursement for the faulty console I'd be stuck with a bugged system. They throw in these changes with a previously developed and fairly sound console and it might cause something similar to the red ring of death.

You're creating a lot of assumptions..do these arise merely from the action that Microsoft took today? I don't believe that what they did today makes them a less reliable company..if anything, it makes them perhaps seem even more trustworthy.

"that Microsoft took today?"

What?

No. They arise from the fact that Microsoft was comfortable with this system originally, then made these changes quickly to suit the customer when the changes may not be completely compatible to the original plan.

Yes, "the action that Microsoft took today". Updating the Xbox One before release. And yes, you're right; these changes are most likely not compatible with the original plan, but it appears the original plan is no longer the current plan. Regardless, I don't see how this means my product may be less satisfactory.

Any programs or OS they had set to run with the original plan now has to be coupled with these changes. They aren't recreating the xbox one from the ground up. They are just throwing in a loop to the programming that allows for offline play and game sharing. It wasn't built into the system from the beginning so there might be problems. That's all I'm saying, Mr. Giver of Down Thumbs.

Hahaha I didn't thumb you down bro, they just represent lurker's opinions. I agree with what you're saying though, there might be problems, but I doubt it, they're a big boy company, problems mean loss of profit. Microsoft I'm sure is hard at work right now working out all of the potential problems that could result from the practical changes that must ensue due to the system change. It's unreasonable to assume that the Xbox One will be completely bugged, for all we know they *could* rebuild it from the ground up.

Yes, but one could also speculate it to appear on PS4. *dramatic music*
Alright man, I believe I've said all I had to say. If in doubt, read my previous comments.

I think the big thing for a lot of people (including myself) is the price. I don't care for Kinect at all, and the only Xbone exclusive I want is the next Halo, so I plan to purchase the PS4 before I get the XBone. The next Halo won't be out for a bit, so the cheaper system with somewhat better hardware seems like the one to get first, especially for multi-platform titles.

I agree, I also care about the price. However, what I'm doing is just sticking with my 360 for a while instead of immediately jumping on the new generation. Perhaps til 2014's holiday season, or whenever the price for the consoles drops significantly. As far as I'm concerned, the 360 is a flawless console, and I'm completely content with my version of it. Besides, new games are still coming out for it and it's completely relevant (I'm excited for Destiny).
