Just unplug the darn thing if you're worry about privacy and use an controller.
armour1997  +   426d ago
No you can't the Xbox one requires the kinect to work

If people are still this misinformed about the X1 MS is to blame.

Where the hell have you been the past few months?

Kinect is required to work for some games like Ryse.

Well isn't that a waste of $100.
zeal0us  +   426d ago
Sell it on ebay. I am sure some poor soul would like a second Kinect 2.0 to go with their Xbox One.

I thought everyone was forced to buy a Kinect 2? How can you sell it if everyone you would sell it to already has one?

Oh sorry, right, i forgot about the change

Watch this shit gets hacked anyway. And some 40 year old naked man playing minecraft get caught.

LOL

I have to admit that this did make me laugh. I put a small cloth over my iMac camera completely out of paranoia.
Goldenarmz  +   426d ago
Why do people buy cameras if they are that paranoid? I mean really... Billions of people in the world, and you really think they are going to take the time out to watch you? ?? if i could hack people cameras i would hack swimsuit models, porn stars, etc. Not some random guy on the internet smh

"B-b-b-but if we follow your logic, we won't have anything to be unnecessarily paranoid or upset about!"
zeal0us  +   426d ago
Why hack porn stars cameras when you can already see them naked for free?
BX81  +   425d ago
Yeah, but we want to see them make toast and read magazines all from the comfort of their home.

It's sad that some company is trying to monetize on people's fears over privacy. Never had a problem with PDP overall, but the most sensible solution for people that are worried about it is to not use the camera, and not spend even more money on top of a peripheral they don't want in the first place, to circumvent it's intended use.

Otherwise, I'd imagine some sort of inline switch to physically disconnect the device while being able to keep it plugged in for those times you may want to use it makes more sense, since that would disable the mic as well. Knowing modders in general, I'm sure there will be something up within a week on how to do just that, for those technically inclined enough to take the thing apart.
