I actually like the Xbox One. Everyone complains about needing internet connection but honestly, if one has a game system they most likely will have internet connection. Also, I never really play with anyone else in the room, I only play online so I usually don't have others sitting with me. AND I highly doubt they are "spying" on us. We aren't that interesting.
Nevertheless I am more interested in Nintendo, much better than Xbox One and PS4 atm in my honest opinion. I obviously don't have $399 or $499 to spend
I think the internet connection issue isn't that people don't have internet, but more that some people just don't use the internet based features. Having to check in online every time you want to play a game is ridiculous unless you're actually going to play online.
I have a Wii and a PS3 atm, and I have a good internet connection. I'm able to hook up to the internet, but I don't want to. I have never connected to the internet. I play co-op games with my sister (or our friends, when they're over) and I buy my games from the store. I don't need to go online for anything, so I don't bother.
My point is, up till now, being an online presence was a choice, and if you chose that, good for you. Buy personally, I'd rather keep my consoles internet-free.
