    Default Germany considers ban on Xbox One

    The German government coming out and stating that the Xbox One is a monitoring device. The Federal Data Protection Commissioner for Berlin, Peter Schaar, has said "Under the heading, game device 'Microsoft pushes a monitoring device in the market. The Xbox continuously records all sorts of personal information about me. Reaction rates, my learning or emotional states. The are then processed on an external server, and possibly even passed on to third parties. Whether they will ever deleted, the person can not influence".

    This isn't far fetched, as the Xbox One has a camera built-in and is built to capture and recognize the face of its users. Microsoft are pushing the Xbox One as an all-in-one entertainment system, that can be voice and gesture controlled. Consider the fact that the Xbox One can be turned on by a voice command, meaning that the microphone on the Xbox One is always listening, always waiting.

    No, I'm with Germany on this. The design of the One, especially when connected to the internet, could be abused in a host of nefarious ways. Does Microsoft guarantee the security of their networks? Is your personal data/activities safe from exploitation? Does some intelligent stalker have an easy eye and ear into your living room? Are you away on vacation? Did you remember to unplug your Xbox? Are you inviting burglars? It's retarded.

    I'd compare this to your mobile carrier recording your conversations, tracking your movements, and using an NFC to scan nearby registers to record your purchases... except they're already doing this and getting way with it.

    It does sound a little far-fetched, but then again, we are being monitored in so may other ways with facebook, smartphones and such...but i would'nt really be worried about this though.

    If it does get banned that would be a good thing since our beloved PC's would get more and better games being released and less porting failures like GTA IV.

    No kidding! I'm not 100% this is true but I read somewhere that the US government records all home/cell phone calls and a computer checks for possible threats. If that's true than... Creepy!

    No need to go all full on conspiracy theory people. Personally I am just really worried about a single company having access to all my information instantly and thus possibly opening a gate for other people.

    Microsoft's new Xbox will track EVERYTHING you watch on TV - but will reward you for watching the ads

    • Application submitted to the US Patent and Trademark office shows Microsoft's plans for tracking viewing habits of Xbox owners
    • The company plans to reward viewers who watch adverts or shows with credits and achievements
    • The new Kinect sensor can follow eye movements, track your reaction to shows using heart-rate monitors and see you in the dark

    Mouse in a maze huh. Mmm... cheese....

    People are a product being sold and traded, but they don't get any of the profits. All they get is a push in whatever direction their masters want them to go. Gullible ****ing sheep don't even see it.
