    Is there anything I can do to make my console more useful than a damn brick when I have no internet?

    I tried to start a few games, they all said something along the lines of "you have no connection you dong dong, switch to offline mode to play!" then I switch to offline and just get an error code instead. I then check youtube (thanks isp for the unlimited
    data package) and everyone says "enable home xbox" I can't acces the feature without a connection!

    A system update that gives us acces to the games we BOUGHT is sorely needed. I'd say something I bought is mine, you are keeping MY property hostage.

    Give it back or give me my money.

    :)

    Offline gaming?

    @ Icestorm3

    I do yes, I have a steam account and all that Jazz. But I can play and access my games offline, Buy them in store then connect them to steam all without the need to go online. And I really want to pick up Rome Total War 2. Plus PC is largely backwards compatible
    (can play a lot of pretty old games)

    Every platform has it's strengths and weaknesses I just see more weaknesses in the One than positives.

    Then I am going to invest in a new PC gaming rig.

    One Original Xbox, 3 Xbox 360's (RROD) and one Xbox360 Slim. Roughly 150 + games purchased across those consoles including GOD and arcade games and an Xbox live subscription for the best part of five years.

    Well I guess I made a poor long term investment and it's time to cut my loses. When the Xbox came out and I played Halo:CE for the first time I thought I would be buying Xbox's for generations. Oh well.

    Thanks for wasting my time MS.

    So, why not set your home xbox? You only need to be connected for a minute.

    You just need to set your xbox as your home xbox.

    System

    Settings

    Personalisation

    My home xbox

    Make this my home xbox.

    Hope this helps
