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.

Sipping tea and plotting against freedom one game at a time.
