Yeah that's the problem here in the US these people are brainwashed by the media. Its an American company so they lie like hell to the dumb ass consumers that never ever do their research. They only believe what the TV says. Hah hah...Trust me when I say this Xboxone is a total dud for sure. The only ones who will buy it will he the wack ass kinect fans and hardcore Halo fans.
