The whole crowd cheering for PS4 not forcing this or that on gamers reminded me of John Cena. Cheer the opposition then go buy a Cena t-shirt on the way out. Let's see what happens when Xbox One owners are playing launch exclusives like RYSE, Dead Rising 3 and all the PS4 multiplats. The restrictions are not a problem for Xbox One at all. The $100 price difference is. Most won't notice or even care about DRM and daily check-ins (Hello, Netflix) but $100 will definitely draw their attention when making a decision.
The internet, no internet is very similar to the HDTV or no HDTV of this gen. It'll be rough initially, but more people will get internet access and become more comfortable with Xbox One's daily authentication.
The restrictions are not a problem at all? What the hell are you talking about? The internet thing is a HUGE deal. There are people out there that either won't be able to afford the internet, or are just in a wasteland. I know tons of people right now that have Xbox 360s and PS3s but don't have a solid internet connection. And what do you do if something takes out the internet (weather, provider problems, etc.)? Then you're straight up fucked.
And honestly, when you bring up Xbox One exclusives, you can't say they're any better. That's all opinion. I personally liked seeing what the PS4 had to offer in terms of exclusives (Order of 1866, Killzone Shadow Fall, Infamous Second Son).
So yeah. Used game restrictions, online requirements, and another $100 pretty much fucked over the Xbox. Not to say it won't sell, but I'm willing to bet that the PS4 will dominate the sales WORLDWIDE. I'm expecting Xbox One to be pretty big in the U.S, but still unsure if it'll top the PS4 here.
