After today's NSA revelations, who in their right mind would trust an always-on Microsoft-controlled Xbox camera in their living room?— Christopher Soghoian (@csoghoian) July 11, 2013
Because Microsoft is wanting to move Xbox One into the living room of families using Kinect, the device can – for example – recognise when there are many people in a room, and target adverts to families and people of varying ages.
They added, “On Xbox, the ad is part of the actual experience, it’s not something that is outside. The only difference is that the advertisement we have is quite small and not disruptive so people are not aware of clicking on the banners because they know this is a part of the whole experience on the dash.
If you know what the current Xbox Dashboard brought to you by Mountain Dew Gamer Fuel is like, you wouldn’t trust this either.
This Xbox One thing sounds like it gets worse all the time.
