Remember when consoles were about playing games and not advertising or updating twitter?
Remember when Phones were just for calling/texting? I see no one complaining about that either.
The difference is portability. I can’t take my Xbox everywhere, but I can do that with my phone. That’s why people love that kind of thing on a phone, but not on a video game console.
If you’ve got a phone that impedes on making calls like the nonsense Microsoft keeps putting into their system that impedes on playing games, I’ll lend you my phone. I’ll even go so far as to not check your internet or charge you for using it when you make your call.
