The lights are on
1. Anyone can get the console and use it even soldiers. This fixes the problem because as soon as you buy the console you go to any place that has Wifi, plug it in, connect to the internet, download update and you are good to go play anywhere at anytime no more shut down if you are out of connection range.
2. The only reason Xbox 360 was so expensive to set up is because the first systems didn't come with an internal Wifi adapter however as seen with the slim version it came with the Wifi so all you had to do was power up and connect. The same will go for Xbox One because it has an internal Wifi adapter. Also you don't need Xbox Live to play all you need is a one time connection then you can play offline without live all you want as long as your not interested in multiplayer which does require live.
And I can't stress enough how much you don't need internet for this device. It's just a one time connection that is it. So since it's impossible nowadays to not have some friend with some kind of internet just pop by their house for an hour or so depending on download time and download the update. No big deal heck if you must just plug it in at a McDonalds with Wifi HaHa.
