    I have been loyal Xbox user for almost a decade. Forcing me to make microsoft accounts for my children (3 and 5 yrs old) to play with me will not keep me around, but it will push me away.

    this is crazy. i just want my kids to play with their friends. i have to sit there setting up accounts for everyone. i am going back to my xbox 360 . Microsoft xbox one sucks. not everyone is a serious gamer. some are just looking for a console to play and have fun. I ve spent more time on setup and downloads and upadates . enough. we need local account. 123 play kind of system.

    I thought I was just ignorant when I couldn't figure out how to create a profile without creating a new online account for my 7yo. Now that I find out it's not a feature I'm not sure I'm happy about not being ignorant or sad that this console isn't able to do what the 360 could. A child does not need an online identity to be able to play a game and keep saves. This is utterly sad on MS part, what is worse is that this only has 27 votes and probably won't be seen by MS, yet all the entitled ideas for "GIMME ME FREE STUFF BECAUSE REASONS." have hundreds or thousands of votes. I've been on XBOXLIVE for 10+ years and I am extremely disappointed in the entire ONE system. I held out for years in purchasing it because I had family & friends that did and I didn't like it then. Finally broke down because I want to play some of the newer games and now I don't like myself for doing so. I will be going Sony from here on out.

    I just bought an Xbox 1 s for my son for Christmas and I am completely disappointed with the lack of off line accounts like ALL OTHER systems have! How in the world can the Microsoft team sit down and look at this decision as yep this is perfect ???? Down right ignorant thing to do to their customer base. I believe I will be returning this system also since Microsoft doesn't seem to give a rats butt about us. Thank Microsoft for helping me to decide to buy a PS 4!

    Agree. Multiple kids that want to play and I'm not gonna bs a bogus profile for all of them. I need offline accounts like on our 360's we own. COME ON MICROSOFT!

    I'm returning our XBOX ONE S to Walmart because my kids can't have offline accounts.

    Right? This online everything is starting to *** me off, i just bought a $50 dollar game that doesnt require internet to play but you sure do have to have internet to sign in your profile to play the damn thing. WTF!, I will say this, my cousin slung his out the window, *** on it and replaced his with a ps4, he said *** xbox lol i want to do the same thing with mine, this thing cost a house payment and ive had it for two damn weeks and cant even play the *** without a *** internet connection, Jesus Christ
