My friend does not have the internet. They will not have the internet under any circumstances, but they want to buy a new console now that the Xbox 360 is obsolete. We have both heard that both the PS4 and Xbox One REQUIRE connection to work at all by downloading some patch first. That isn't an option for me (and no they wont bring it here I already asked and they refused with the words "I don't go near the net ever except if forced to at work").
Will either console just work out of the box? Whichever she gets isn't ever going to be updated unless the discs of games do so. Its never going to be online, she isnt interested in online gaming at all, doesn't have an internet, or even email. She won't even have a smartphone or MP3 player.
