Right, MS of all companies... radio silent. You can't shut them up any other time, especially when negative attention goes their way. They are instant to stifle that shit.The Xbox One reveal event took place in May 2013, one month before E3. In that one month, they got raked through the coals for their always-online policies and they went defcon-1 trying to reverse everything as fast as possible. They never had a chance to explain or show how anything they had planned was going to work.
The original reveal mentioned NONE of the consumer benefits to this "vision." That is the very time you sell them on it. In my eyes, it was pure backpedal since it took them so long to even say, "this is what it would have been."
Seemed more like a CYA thinktank checklist they formulated well after, since it came well after. But now, we are being conditioned more and more of always online, cloud gaming, blah blah, without even the 2013 backpedal benefits, lol. All companies are doing this now.
