I've seen a few videos on the XBone's disc drive errors, in all their screeching glory. Yeesh. It also seems that the Kinect sensor is rather hit and miss. I could live with the goddam non-backward compatibility and hope they correct whatever bugs are present, but is the Kinect absolutely 100% necessary to make the console work? As I've said before, I hate Kinect and all similar inprecise motion/voice activated gimmick toys that may not understand my gestures or properly discern my voice (especially if I'm not an anglo and my accent may confuse the software). If you need to operate the console, that's why you have buttons on the console and your controller. Regardless, I'm with Zeta1127: the Xbox is above all the Halo-delivery device and the launch titles simply don't look too enticing.
