The day one patch removes the "always online" requiment in the OS for games. So they pretty much have to get it online at least once.
The Xbox One is apparently a bit buggy at the moment and reviewers can't play the games properly.
Starting to definitely regret my pre order cancellation...guess all will be revealed soon enough.
Wonder what this 'harder eyeroll' could be re: COD
Ah. Makes sense. Nothing really too shocking, id imagine that it will be a changing OS even well past launch.
One thing though, assuming launch consoles are now packaged and games are going gold, what happens to poor folk without tinternet?
