Microsoft and Sony already collects vasts amounts of data from gamers using the Xbox 360 or PS3 when they connect online.
Gathering play data and spending trends is different then having an always on Kinect watching and listening to you.
Well the need for internet connection to briefly verify/authenticate games never bothered me, if micro just doesn't implement restrictions on used games then its all good for me. Xbox fans need to take a stand too....go on twitter and let micro know how you feel about the used games DRM. https://twitter.com/XboxP3/... You can also voice your concerns in xbox forums like I have. http://forums.xbox.com/xbox...
Both of your links are broken bro. I applaud you standing up for horrible DRM practices though and I will do so also.
well done joy more need to be like you rather than letting them shaft you .
my bad not sure why the links are broken but here are links where you can find both: http://www.gameranx.com/upd... http://xboxoneforums.com/fo...
Slowly unplugs PlayStation Eye and puts it in a shoebox....
Make that a lead box with a tinfoil lining. Just to be sure...
Hah! I guess you can never be to careful ;)
Slowly drops pants and moons playstation eye
Anyone else think that the pic looks a lot like J. Jonah Jameson? Lol.
good write up!
Why does Big Brother look so much like Victor Sullivan? He's got me sweating like a whore in church.
So they been watching me bang some babes on ps3, i see.
Funny how a company who's already been in trouble for spying on skype users says"your privacy is our top priority" Being able to turn it off isn't the same as being able to unplug it and leave it in a box in the closet. No thanks MS/BIG BROTHER.
thats kool but it dont need to see me n the missus gettin busy. i like a bj whilst i play games but id spend more time finkin am i bein watched lol
Here's some data MS can collect.. Yooouuu Suck ( homer simpson voice) and my dollars will be going to the Ps4
1) Gamer Masks. Why decal your console when you can decal your face? Associate your favorite characters to your account. 2) Voice Scramblers. Anonymous is most fun but not when all 16 players have them. 3) Fingerprint covers. Just like disc covers. Protect your fingerprints from exposure. 4) Video Loopback adapter. Just slide the screen over your PS EYE or Kinect. Loops 3 hours of video. 5) Eyeball scramblers. Prevent the camera from knowing where you truly look. Balls look at 50 directions per second. 6) Body suits. Excellent for masking your sex, race, weight, scars, and tatoos. 7) Automatic Console Swivel. Spin the camera 360 when not in use. Maximum speed? Enough to make monitoring a "dizzying" experience. 8) Night Vision Goggles. Play in the dark and confuse the maintenance techs. 9) Shameshark Cheat Software. Watch those watching you...watch them, watch you. Gather their face, voice, and facial expressions and upload their personal life to Youtube! 10) Language Scrambler. Speak any language, use morse code, or even use leaked military communication codes. Useful for hiding communication from the enemy.
