I understood and could accept the lack of backwards compatibility. I was willing to give MS the benefit of the doubt on the DRM-thing, and tbh, as a collector, the used-game thing was a non-issue for me. The $500 price tag, though? Sorry, that's the straw that broke the camel's back... Given that most of the TV-based features won't be available in Canada, given that it doesn't sound like I'll be missing out on many exclusive games (do I REALLY want to a Teh Haloz 5? i only moderately enjoyed Teh Haloz 4), and given that I could really give a shaq-fu about Kinect, I think I'm out for this gen. Sorry, MS. I could have dealt with a $400 XBone, but $500? I'm out.
The price won't be $500 forever.
