They will buy them as fast as Microsoft can make them. No matter what Microsoft does, people will buy it. Look at Win8 for proof -- it's not selling well, but it's still selling. And both the XBox One and Win8 will be the only game in Microsoft Town soon enough.

I've got a few more than 3 or 4 shows I like to watch, but I agree with the rest. I have no idea when the shows I watch are actually on, but all that is completely overshadowed by the pleasure of sitting down to find a new episode of Warehouse 13, Eureka, Haven, Good Eats, etc. sitting on the DVR.

If you think the system is working, ask someone who's waiting for a prompt.
