Xbox Live Gold Required to Turn Off Xbox One

Following the news that the recording features of the Xbox One require Xbox Live Gold, Microsoft has also announced that Xbox Live Gold is required for gamers who want to turn off their Xbox One.turningitononlyrequiresregularxboxliveWhile Sony’s recording features on the PlayStation 4 are free and available to everyone, Microsoft claims the Xbox One’s recording features are superior and therefore demands a superior price. Following this announcement, Microsoft explained that turning off an Xbox One will also require an Xbox Live Gold account.

“We think that when gamers get their hands on an Xbox One, they will never turn it off because of how great it is,” said Xbox Live’s Larry Hryb, “I haven’t turned mine off since I’ve gotten it. We know that some gamers would like the option to turn off their Xbox One so this is why we have included it as a paid feature as part of the Xbox Live Gold package. These kinds of options are what separate us from the competition.”

“While some are concerned about privacy issues with the Kinect camera, we can assure people that there is nothing to be worried about,” continued Hryb, “However, we know that there are some worrywarts out there who will want to turn off the Kinect so that too is also an Xbox Live Gold feature. Most people will simply get used to having a camera watch them all the time. It’s not that big of a deal and I can attest to that.”

Hryb went on to praise the Xbox Live Gold account system and began to list the benefits of having one.

“Just in case you are unsure of whether or not you want to get an Xbox Live Gold account for these features, let me list some of the benefits,” said Hryb, “You can use the Kinect voice feature to comfortably turn off the Xbox One from a distance instead of getting up and unplugging it. By turning the Kinect itself off, you can save some electricity and you can turn the Kinect off from a distance too. Furthermore, you can brag to other Xbox One owners without a gold account about how you can turn off your Xbox One.”

Microsoft also considered only letting those with Xbox Live Gold accounts purchase an Xbox One but decided against it.

    This is so cool! Only people with gold will be able to turn off the system. I’m going to show off turning it off in front of people that don’t have live gold.

    Is this article a joke or is this serious…..if this is for real then this is getting ridiculous now. I don’t what Microsoft’s thinking. Do they think just because they beat sony this gen that they can do what they want? They’re going to be in for a surprise when both consoles launch…
