In the light of the horrifying rumor of the XboxOne's kinect always watching and listening to what you say as well as being connected really is starting to feel quite unsettling and very big brother-esque.
xboxone will not be able too watch you and only listens when you say "XBOX ON" as far as big brother goes government started listening and watching us when the airwaves went digital as the data from recorders in our flatscreens was too larg to be send over analog cables. as to why we now need analog to digital converters. neither xboxone or ps4 have had a chance to show people what they can do so im still willing to give it a shot. wish windows 8 could have been better.
