Our Grumpy Man of Gaming, Drew Pontikis turns his gaze upon Microsofts Kinect.
Join the crowd... not me though, still busting a nut with Dance central 3...
never trust kinect.
Sh////////////t...... Never did :D
Kinect 2 spies on you along with Deadbox ONE
He should actually watch the Kinect 2 Demonstrations before talking shit about it.
Um, no don't forget the privacy issues. 1. Microsoft gives your data to gov't...for example; web and email amongst other data. 2. Microsoft has built in back doors to Windows since Windows 95. 3. They're already said they'll follow any court order (including Kangaroo FISA court), and in some cases they don't even need to since they let the gov't jack in to their wires. 4. Microsoft has been telling the gov't about 0-day security flaws in it's software. The gov't exploits them. Then sometime later, Microsoft scares you by saying....hurry up and update..it's CRITICAL!!!! So critical you let the gov't exploit people with it for 3-6 months? Yeah. 5. Google is now suing the gov't because they cannot tell their customers who they are spying on. Repeat. The gov't forces these companies to NOT tell you. Again I'll say it. If you want to know if cigarettes cause cancer do you ask the head of Marlboro? Use your brain. Kinect is always listening to you, and no you can't turn it off. Even the way Microsoft wanted to use it for itself...make money off YOUR data, is incredibly creepy, and can really impact your life negatively. (but one has to think of all the ways it can backfire on you...and most people have mental sloth so they DON'T) Microsoft can sell your data to your employer or school and then they can cross check the logs and your attendance. They can sell your body data to insurers who then have a record of how big you've been over the years...your own Kinect causing your insurance premiums to skyrocket. Both Microsoft AND the Gov't sell/trade/give your data away to THOUSANDS of companies. So many ways to abuse it, and people are actually stupid enough to pretend there isn't anything. Ladies and Gentlemen, that's how morons do things. Don't be one. Because MS is saying 'trust us'. Only a fucktard would.
Disagree with facts? That's called DENIAL #dealwithit
Kinect I was right to never trust you.
In the world of today u would be daft to let a surveillance camera into ur home
In your home you should always have every belief you have privacy. When you leave the home, you hit at least one camera even in a sparsely populated area. Significantly more if you live in a dense city. My kinect is on and looking at me right now, if someone wants to go through all the trouble to hack it and look at me sitting here on my iPad watching TV, then ok. Enjoy the boring show. I never heard of one single complaint of an Xbox 360 being hacked to spy on another console gamer. Show me a complaint, a court affidavit of a lawsuit. Then I will worry about the kinect 2 when I get it. It is extremely difficult to run a hacked console, then hack other consoles online just to spy through their camera. And for all the people here you and me included have given significantly more information out on this website and many others voluntarily than what could be used against you in a hack even if it is behind a password gate. I am more worried about that information than a kinect camera. It is not like I am running around revealing personal information left and right giving an oppertunity to a hacker on my kinect anyway. And Microsoft has received thousands of request to reveal public information by the US government. They have petitioned to disclose the public the request. Those request, were issued by warrants. Not some peek a boo on people playing video games on kinect. Microsoft wants to tell everyone what has been going on but are under a FISA gag order to remain silent. If anyone is spying on you, it is the government, not Microsoft. http://www.foxnews.com/tech... http://www.washingtonpost.c...
