    Xbox One users can't use their real names online at launch

    Another feature announced at the reveal event that will not be there at launch

    A feature allowing Xbox Live users to identify each other by their real names in lieu of Gamertags will not be available on the Xbox One when the console launches on Nov. 22, a representative for Microsoft told Kotaku.

    The feature which Microsoft executives first revealed would be an option during the console's unveiling event in May would allow Xbox Live users to attach their real names to accounts and identify one another using them. According to the representative, this option has been postponed.

    No big deal. I'd rather that be optional. I'll take the other features over that one anyday.

    Not a problem. Only very few would rather have their own name there.

    No loss for X1 owners. I'm sure as heck not going to use my real name on PS4.

    Hell, I do not want to put my own name on Youtube even thought it keeps asking all the time to change it.

    I don't know why you would want to put your real name up anyway. Just making fraud one step easier for hackers IMO.
