Xbox One - Terrible choice for the offline gamer?

Just because the One doesn't ping a server every 24hrs doesn't mean it's going to be a worthwhile purchase for the offline gamer. Watching discussions with developers, game videos, reading about cloud processing etc. it's clear a lot of single player game modes will incorporate some sort of cloud interaction in some way. The One without the Internet is going to be like a modern smartphone without the Internet. Sure it may function in some capacity but it's going to be seriously limited.
