UK government plans to track what you're playing

All UK communication companies, under the proposed legislation, will be obliged to keep records of all sites that users visited for at least a year. Categories that could be retained include information about social network usage, webmail, Skype calls, and gaming. (Industry, PC, PS3, PSP, Tech, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

the US and the UK are racing to see who can have the biggest police state. don't worry, this will come to the US soon enough (if it's not already here). this information is already stored by MS and Sony anyway.

The ms e3 conference this year seemed strangely like american pro military occupation propaganda. Or at least very pro war.

Who cares if the Government plans to track on what your playing, I don't care if they see me play the Last Of Us in the near future ;)

its not like my PSN friends know what I'm playing right now.

not Call Of Duty.

We may as well make it official & have a national funeral for the constitution. We r living so far outside its bounds that its simply being used as a symbol and nothing else. Its too bad because it was possibly the greatest experiment known to man.

@Zuperman

Yes of course "The Last of Us" wont seem out of order, but what happens when the government catches you playing "Wonderbook - Book of spells" 10 hours in a row.

depends I am from the UK, But my prefrence is offline gaming so they can't see what I am playing. The last time I played online was lbp.

However this has come up agaisnt stiff critism and even though the government say its needed to catch criminals etc no one will like this as it breaks privacy laws as well and given the governments recent track record of scarpping laws such as the recent pasty tax they might be willing to back down on this.

Stupid conservatives.

Does that mean I need to stop playing Hannah Montana to avoid embarrassment?

We're already the most monitored country in the world...*sigh*

Nah. That's China.
Fez  +   775d ago
Probably means the amount of CCTV cameras kicking about. It's pretty ridiculous.

That's 2009 and possibly not entirely accurate so things have probably changed but per person we have much more cameras than China and probably every other country.
tigertron  +   775d ago
You'd think so but actually the UK is.
FlashXIII  +   775d ago
Lol soon we won't even be able to take a shit discreetly without the government knowing exactly what we've eaten to produce said excrement. I dread to think what said pathetic state some countries will be in by 2020.

If it stops kids fuckin up games they're too young to be playing anyway then I'm all for it!!
kingPoS  +   774d ago
This sounds just as bad as that Urban Wolf video that was on crackle. The cameras were following that guy everywhere. Kinda creepy if you think about it.
tachy0n  +   774d ago
hmm the damn illimunati is moving towards their new world order faster than expected, good thing that the people will resist this BS.
numonex360  +   774d ago
BS laws and totally unenforceable. Kids will negate the proposed new laws. Governments implementing Nanny State laws that infringe on people's freedom and choice.
