Xbox One Review: The Ghost in the Machine

Xbox One Review: The Ghost in the Machine


We stared at each other for a while. I cleared my throat and said: “Xbox On”. It beeped immediately, lights flashed, and I was interrogated by a machine. My stupid face was brought up on screen and, almost as if it was jamming a finger into a revealing photo, it asked “IS THIS YOU?” I fumbled, “Yes, yes! That’s me!” The console seemed satisfied and proceeded to demand my email, my name, my picture, have I verified my account, what was my mother’s best friend’s hair-dresser’s maiden name, etc. It wasn’t Home Affairs, but since I had no association with Microsoft, it was to be expected I’d be registering while logging in. Finally, I was in and boxes were everywhere: It was Windows. And no one likes Windows.
