it's the Xbox One. of course it's a game console. defending principles for principles' sake is ridiculous. just make your stand and don't buy it. that's how you protect your principles. teaching your children your beliefs is how you protect your principles.
going from one rooftop to another shouting how people need to be educated is not the way to do it. you overestimate the importance of the Xbox One. it will not mean the death of anything. it's one device among many devices on the market. it will not destroy the planet. it will not turn us all into communists. it will not destroy the personal computing world. consoles are a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things. You look at the Wii, 360, and PS3 this generation and they sold a combined 260 million over 8 YEARS. 330 million PCs are sold YEARLY. It's really not that big of a deal. Most of the world moves along not knowing a console exists.
are you going to stop eating meat because animals are being cruelly treated? are you going to stop buying personal goods because there are people starving and destitute in the world? are you going to stop using cars because of the pollution they create?
you create a thread about the Xbox One and say this thread is not about gaming??? there are political forums you can join to talk about the death of consumer rights and how Microsoft is out to destroy you. But because you hate Microsoft, you have to create a thread that you yourself said is not about gaming but rather a principle that you feel you must act upon. have you seen how many hate threads you've created lately? what happened to computing and helping people fix their problems?
