With the PS4 set to get an Eye and the Xbox One to get a Kinect Two, Daily Reaction’s three hundred and sixty staff members, Seb and Dan, discuss whether inviting big brother into your living room is a good idea. - PSLS
They should have called it the Xbox Sauron.
Talk about a red ring.
yeah, always watching till it dies.
My 360 just got one this month....
i'll bet you none of the xbox execs will have and xbox one in there living room. they cant have there own workers spying on them.. LOLz
Seriously, I don't want a camera and microphone "always on" in my house.
Same. I already have a TV audience that lives inside my brain. I don't need it to become real. I am a jackass in front of them. :(
That is what I told the FBI.
Just watch out for those audible claps.
If I can't unplug it, I don't want it.
Then you don't want it
You can unplug it on ps4, they made a different port for that, same as the xboxone, but, i heard you have to have your kinect on always to play anythin.
I doubt pseye will even be boxed with the ps4
Stop looking at me!
Stop looking at me swan ....
Aww now ill have to wear clothes to play, thanks a lot next Gen :(
I'm calling it the shitone. Because that's what Microsoft did, They let one go all over every core gamer that watch that reveal.
Naw, just the XBO.
As bad or hypocritical as it sounds, I don't mind "that" much if PSN is keeping track of my purchases, downloads and general use of PSN so that it tries to anticipate what I might be interested in, but what MS is talking about with Kinect is far more intrusive. Has it actually watching you, collecting information which can then be either used by MS or sold to any other company. And of course the real kicker is that you're paying to be watched. Also: Yes. If Sony has *ANY* plans on doing anything similar with their camera - its a deal breaker!
This is ridiculous. I won't buy games if they have to be online, can't be resold or borrowed, and aren't physical. The only way I would is if the games are very cheap like under five dollars. Full games? HE'LL NO! I honestly don't see how pc guys love steam which makes you be online, can't resell games, no physical disks exc. it's the same exact thing were talking here. Steam does it and people praise them, MS does it and people go ballistic. Double standards much? One thing that would help is being able to borrow dd games or trade with friends like kindle books. Maybe anyone on your friends list can trade games or borrow for up to a month. Devs would hate it but you can't go full on digital and also strip disk reusability in one fell swoop. Online passes are bad enough, use those and let us exchange dd games. If they could create a vibrant ecosystem of media from movies, music, and games that's fairly priced and let's you exchange it and even trade games in for credits (like a rental) than it could be alright. iTunes did well because it was cheap and convenient, all songs are one dollar instead of fifteen bucks an album that has only four good songs. Steam works because they have sales which are dirt cheap, without this nobody would buy full price dd games. The App Store works because games are a dollar. It's cheap, convenient, and has a huge library to browse through. Create a huge ecosystem, cheap prices, and the ability to trade and borrow coupled with disks that have a five dollar used pass and it will work. Force online and block used games and goodbye MS. I actually think the borrowing dd games would be brilliant on consoles.
People go ballistic because they expect something different. If I go to a Redbox I expect to be renting. I know the rules of what renting entails, therefore I can judge it's worth based on what I'm getting for the money. Steam it's the same concept. They have excellent deals that reflect their true worth. For a console people expect ownship for the prices they pay. Why, well because they are getting the same product as Steam but without the same prices. These console companies are, in reality, no different than Steam except the fact that they are keeping the illusion that it is something more.
Nevermind. Wrong article.
