I purposely destroyed my smart tv, laptop, mobile phone and any recording technology pre- 1994 with internet functionality for this very reason! Viva la revolution!

My favourites are people that shout on Facebook and Twitter how much privacy they're losing.

People on here DID buy an Xbox One, so this topic is misplaced.

And I believe the NSA stuff died out about 8 months ago.

My biggest gripe with the xbone was kinect. I know ill be labeled a conspiracy theorist or tin foil hat wearer or something similar (hell, a few years ago I'd have been the one calling people who think this those terms) but our government is terribly shady and completely out of control, and Microsoft has some strong ties with them.

There was no way in hell I was putting an always on camera/microphone in my bedroom, facing my bed. And yes, I know, my phone/laptop/tablet/toaster all have the same capabilities and they all fall under the same law (PATRIOT Act) that require them to do so, but they aren't facing my bed 24/7. And they aren't my VIDEO GAME CONSOLE.

When kinect was mandatory, I wanted to see xbox fail so hard that no console manufacturer would ever try that again. Now that it's been removed, I hope xbox succeeds.

Ok, why not just reply to that post then?
Why create a whole topic about it?

Hey, don't compare the kinect to a simple camera phone!

What about all of it's awesome features, such as facial recognition, tracking your body movement, infrared camera, ability to interact with what's going on on the screen, etc.

The kinect isn't just a simple camera, it's a highly advanced camera, straight up in your living room!

... which recognizes the left side of my couch as a "player" , freaks out when the cat comes and goes and just ignores me and my voice 50% of the time.
With such quality as this , my worries about someone watching me were swiftly eased.

Most people didn't buy xbox because it's a piece of crap.
