Article related to the XBOX One and its function in your living room.
This has been debunked and a similar article like this was already posted.
dumb articles like this need to be taken down. Just fills consumers with information and fears that are not true. If people start believing this because of some unknown blog and author - then what? The internet PERIOD, is one big monitoring device. Get with it.
Debunked by the same Microsoft that requires Internet for snooping.
The thing with Microsoft and windows is that Windows can be hacked and viruses unleashed.... which is why people get spyware for their PC's.... How do we know this won't happen with XB1 ? I just want to play games. I want my own unique experience that I don't HAVE to share with anybody else across the country or world. Create a gaming world and let me experience it my way...in as many ways as I can think/want.
Didn't both Australia and Germany classify it as a surveillance device though? Not approving of this article or anything, just saying...
I thought they had only expressed concern about it so far. While it certainly has the capability to be used for surveillance I think the issue is overblown.
This HAS NOT been debunked. Just because MS give a vague reason for it not being a surveillance camera does not make it true. Lies. This thing will never enter my house.
so, if Microsoft (the manufactures of the device) says something...and you dismiss it, it's still lies? Yep, seems like legit logic. Because if they themselves won't tell you the truth, someone else definitely will. /sarcasm
you guys are all idiots. There is no way microsoft would implement something that can spy on you. The camera can be turned off. Let me guess all you sony fanboys, you also believe 9/11 was done by the U.S government and Bigfoot and the Yetti roam the forest. These articles are pure garbage
@frigid Darkness and all other gamers. How debunked? Never in the history of mankind has a company or a government been so bold to introduce a 3D Biometric scanner/Voice profiling device into the living rooms of people. The last bastion of freedom. People must be retarded to do this voluntarily. Nobody asked for this and data traffic monitoring on the internet is something entirely different. Do you really trust a greedy company to respect your privacy? With this device it will lead to abuse, that's a given basic law. This device gives them to much power. You can tell the difference between VISUALLY seeing your behaviour in your residence and web browsing data? I'm not talking about Facebook here (cause your still in control what you put on there and your living room isn't scanned everytime you go on there). Privacy is a result of hunderds of years of struggle and trial & error by people. It is not ours mess with. It is the result of lessons learned by history and what is best for the common good and to live in some sort of decency. The amount of civilisation of a society is measured by it's prisoners. Learn your history instead of taking everything for granted. Privacy is a human right and companies should be ashamed on trying to break into this last hard earned privilige of the people. When do you loose all your privacy including your living space? In prison or in a communist totalitarian country, like the DDR. Yes if we buy into this, we will make our living spaces into prisons. I can't fíng believe how ignorant you guys are and how easy you seem to give your rights away for your games addiction. I'm an Xbox gamer and PS gamer and i'm not saying this out of any fan motives. And this discussion trancends flamebait or fanboyism, stupid that people try to make it look like a fan argument.
What is this?? So now every xbox one article will come with a personalised headline that reflects the submitters feelings? What the H?
Um... I'm pretty sure that's why it's labeled as "opinion piece." And, if it IS the submitter's feelings, then the submitter also wrote the article, whose title is identical.
home land security!
I don't want anything to do with it. Last generation I had a 360, PS3 and Wii. This Generation I'll be fine with just a PS3.
I have a sale going on 2 tin foil hats for the price of one!
Ironic really, I also have a sale going on, special made grass with sheep in mind, want to buy some?
No deal Howie.
But kinect has a camera,you will want the full body tinfoil suit ;)
Oh stop it with the stupid flame hit articles.
So are Android Cell phones........and anything with google. Does that mean we have to accept it, no. If you feel that strongly about it show it with your dollars, don't buy it.
I'll still smoke weed and have sex with the camera looking. I dont care what they see as long as they don't make it public. in other news, cant wait for the Xbox One. So many things im hyped for. its not like you guys do anything worth recording anyway. If anything, this new Xbox may stop crime by picking up on illegal activities. As long as Ms deliver good games for and with Kinect and the controller, I really don't see anything wrong. Maybe that's my issue though, I like what they're offering and enjoy the tv integration because I'm all about convenience. If one device does everything why should I buy every individual device to do what one thing does because of pride? E3 coming up.. Cant wait
Your attitude is alarming to say the least. All evil resides next to apathy
doesnt every laptop or tablet or smartphone come with a camera?
Yeah but if you cover them, they'll still work!
You can turn the Kinect Camera off in the privacy settings. So this is not worse than a laptop that comes with a webcam.
But then it could hear me fap! :(
Wow, alot of hate articles on xbox one, brings me back to 2006/2007 when everybody had hate PS3 articles. Kind of funny and ironic, haha. But, just like some ps3 articles, some people are just pulling at straws. However, there is definitely allot to be mad at xbox that is deserving.
Will it go "!" If it sees you jacking off?
some people can be total idiots. stop coming up with your own bs views and just wait for the damn e3 show. if its not all cleared up by then, then hit your flame on button. but until then, shut up and be patient.
I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that...
