Xbox One, No Go For Military

Unsurprisingly, the Xbox One isn’t very popular amongst the armed forces of the world. With spotty internet access for most service members overseas, much less those on a naval vessel, plus security concerns surrounding the Kinect’s ‘always listening’ modes it’s no wonder that the military isn’t particularly excited about the Xbox One.

You’d think Microsoft would be more supportive of the military, perhaps not an overwhelming demographic they were still a significant one from last console cycle that was all but controlled by the 360. Apparently Microsoft is just willing to hand the entire demographic to Sony, since the PS4 will be playable anywhere anytime.

Though maybe they just expect the military to keep using 360s. We’ll see how that works out.
