    [quote user="Degenerate Chef"]It does not "BRICK" itself. It locks you out of the games until you connect again. Go get a sub and try and connect to the internet.

    So I can see this being a bit of a problem for those members of our armed forces who pack their XBox ONE's into their rucksack in the hopes of cracking it open late at night for a sneaky play while in the middle of the forest...



    But I don't see how this is a problem for anyone with broadband.



    Was there a point here or did you just not understand how this worked when you started the thread?

    Fierst off I have an IQ of 137. So yes I understand how everything work. I work as a COBOL/VB/C++ programmer and I am the main IT tech. Yes there is a point. They have down time which is limited. Some may have more than others. They are allowed to
    play. Though I think they might get in trouble if they use the encrypted up link to connect to live. Here is the link I read in case you missed it. I could not link it do to the WiiU limitations. HERE.
    I don't care about John and Jane Doe. I do care about our military. That is my point. I really pulled my pre-order back and I am not getting one. I just wanted to see how much attention Unibrow was paying.

    Remember when I said you're holding a grudge against me and letting it influence your posts? You're doing it again.

    So have you understood the XBox ONE to be programmed to BRICK itself if it doesn't connect to the Internet every 24 hours?



    Because all our troops have to do is plug their box in and connect to the interent... and it works again.

    I'm currently in the military serving USN. Did two back to back deployments as an ABE and had minimal downtime. I personally have no problem putting my gaming on hold until later. It just means a ton of games to play afterwards. Like right now :p

    [/quote] I'm too medicated to give a rats *** about you unibrow. You act like a smug, conceaded, spoiled little rich kid who has mommy and daddy makeeverything better. To a normal person this is what it has come to. Because losers have to cheat or steal. None
    of it matters as it refers to me. When it comes to our forces it does matter. They are fighting and dying so I can have my choice of both consoles and an internet connection. Yet they go places it's impossible to have a connection. If I don't play everyday
    it's not like the one will never work again. All will be fine when I connect again be it 24 hours or a thousand. They are forced not to have that option.

    It's still selfish because you didn't care( and were aggressively against it) until it was something you directly care about. You have very little sympathy for your fellow gamers. But either way all that really matters is that you finally realized how messed
    up this is. MS doesn't care, they just want to monitor their customers and anyone who can't be monitored can go buy something else.
