Malek Teffaha of Tech-Ticker, "The new generation is here. Wii U Vs Xbox One Vs PS4. The most recently revealed, was of course Microsoft’s Xbox One. Among the reactions from both the press and the consumers, there has been a mix of both good and bad. Those who adored the new focus on entertainment as a whole versus those who shrugged it off for the lower importance and focus on gaming. No used-games without re-paying the original price, confusion around having to login every 24 hours, mandatory Kinect connection among many others mark a portion of the problems users have been complaining about. An opinion piece is coming up soon enough.
I have a question about the Kinect though, one I have yet to see anyone address. Of course, setting aside the worry of an always-on and always listening device, what if it got busted? Will I be unable to use my Xbox One until I acquire a new functional peripheral?"
