My immediate reflexion of the Xbox experience is that it is a cheap money-grubbing operation.

I bought my son an Xbox One for his birthday. We are trying to set it up and it throws up a dumb "gamertag" by default. We did not choose it. My understanding - from other gamer types - is that this can be changed once for no charge, but, oh no! - Microsoft want $9.99 to do this. It turns out that because my son had a OneDrive account already for some time - for his use of the family PC - that means his option to change the Xbox gamertag expired. According to the Filipino lady on the phone at Xbox Support there was a 30 day time limit. He's never had an Xbox, so the pre-existence of an Xbox game-playing name would have been a mystery to us.

How is that for a stealth charge?

Xbox...? More like Xbucks.
