There seems to be different reasons people think the Kinect is bundled with the XBone. This poll is to see what the general concensus is.

The main focus is not gaming, according to MS they have gaming as like 9th on the list of what the XBone should be used for....I sort of think your 2nd and 3rd option are sort of the same as focused advertising is a form of data collecting. So I guess the difference is who they sell that info too....I'll go with advertising then....

It's funny, because as if I recall correctly from a week or two ago, MS stated that the Kinect will not be used for focused advertising. Whether that is a good thing or bad thing.

Nah. 2 and 3 are different. 3 implies that MS is willingly giving information to the government like with Skype. 2 is for MS lining there pockets with money in cahoots with businesses. 2 separate objectives.

If they do 3 they'll be selling the info to the government, not giving.....which in America is basically a business....

Selling/giving. I think in this context, we may be splitting hairs.
