The Wii U gamepad has a front-facing camera and mic...

which allow video chat.

So how do you know Nintendo isn't spying on you? What if they are watching you play pikmin in your Mario underwear? How do you know your spoiled little sister isn't on some wall-sized projector in a conference room full of creepy old men in kyoto as she tries to work her way through new super mario bros u?

With the controller having a built in mic, they could be listening in on your private conversations. Make sure you never say your credit card number out loud when ordering a pizza!

It's pretty scary that a huge company has easy means to spy on you through their controlled proprietary hardware, yet no one seems the least bit concerned.

Turn the console off when you're not using it. Problem solved.

Because the console doesn't exactly record anything. If that camera was always active, pretty sure the gamepad battery life would be even lower than it already is lol

They are.
Why do you think I'm even wearing underwear right now?

Is TC serious?
You know the gaming industry is **** when the biggest announcement is that a console can play used games and won't totally screw you over.

You know Nintendo isn't because the NSA already is.

My aunt works for the research team at Nintendo and we watch people through their Wii U all the time.

This one girl who was playing Zombi U in her underwear was so hot, we also got her credit card number.
