Microsoft did ultimately repeal their initial design, making changes so the Kinect can be turned off and isn’t constantly recording data. Still, there are serious questions to ponder regarding the future of next-gen gaming.
Are future consoles going to integrate the “always-on” function? Sony already tried something similar with the Eye Toy.
Virtual reality is being further developed with Oculus Rift, but Facebook recently bought out the gaming company, concerning thousands of fans and users about their privacy.
Why do you think Microsoft and other companies are doing such a thing? Public outcry lead to change, but the Xbox was still hugely successful despite its controversy. How invested are people in their privacy?
