Dear Xbox and Microsoft lords,
I have had an xbox 360 for quite a while now. I've been fairly happy with it. But lately, the security nonsense is out of control. I'm not really sure what this 'proof' stuff is, but it's, frankly obtrusive, demanding, and obnoxious. See, I get that you want to keep us secure. I get that it's also there to save your ***. I get that. I support it! I understand how this type of business works. My problem is that when I sit down to play a game (with what I'm sure you understand for folks is becoming less and less time available) the last thing I want to do is fumble around for a half hour figuring out my email password for an email that I never use so you can text or phone me a code so I can enter it so you can determine it's me. I only assume that you know it's me at this point because a criminal wouldn't go through this torture...it's just not worth it.
Yes, in the grand scheme of things this is a small problem...but it's frustrating. This has interrupted me a couple of times in the last month! I'm not kidding. That, is by any standard, excessive. Matter of fact, I should NEVER have to do this. If I've been using it this whole time, there is no reason for the xbox hive mind to feel that I might be some kind of criminal stealing my identity...or WHATEVER they want to do. (Is there some kind of epidemic of crooks stealing xbox sign ins so they can get more achievements? I'm confused).
Anyway, I would like to know why this is happening to me, ever...or at least more than once.
As I said, I've been pretty happy until all of this has happened, but now I'm seriously thinking of just switching completely over to my ps3, cancelling my xbox live annoyance, and not even CONSIDERING an xbox one as a purchase in the future...not to mention my influence with MANY other potential buyers.
I don't mean to sound like a horrid person (though I probably am), I just want to know WHY this happens, and I want it to stop.
