My opinion of Xbox live is that the dashboard now does all the things we wanted it to do for years. I probably use the apps as much as I game. Hopefully they know how to test for heat issues now. If Xbox one does all the shit they say it does, I'm kind of looking forward to it. I don't have a ton of time to game these days either, but I like the idea of having an entertainment hub. The only gripe I really have is that Kinect has so much potential to assist people with handicaps, that it's wasted on an entertainment system.
Maybe I'm just biased, because I seem to be one of the few people that never had my 2006 Xbox red ring. But I wouldn't call myself a fanboy. I'm just looking to see what I can exploit from the new gaming systems on the way. And I'm still starving for details of the PS4. As much of a jack off the Xbox one reveal was, they did make some big promises.
