I mean this is possible right? Don't they have a system in place in the states where if you say certain keywords over the phone your conversation gets saved to a database?

The answer to that now is yes that is very likely.
I've completely changed my mind on this issue I thought it was sorta funny people were worried about the kinect being on all the time but now I see this isn't tinfoil hat shit.
Microsoft has just been revealed as being in the pocket of the NSA so it seems actually very likely the NSA will be monitoring people via the XboxOne.

Wow, microsoft getting slammed today

Claims that microsoft is paying PR firms to upvote positive xbox comments on reddit, downvote negative ones.

Claims that they're paying devs to only show the xbox version of their wares at E3

Mostly speculation, but man reddit is frothing at the mouth over the xbox, microsoft and that prism thing

Looking forward to what they show at E3.

haven't seen this comment, and surprised if one of our guys has been quoted somewhere but...

considering gamestop & specialist stores that rely on the preowned market sell something like 80% of all consoles sold....it's a valid comment.

new hardware drives customers to specialist stores like no ones business, today has been a great example of that, I had groups of people discussing the pro's & cons of both consoles with me all through today.

and because of that, both manufacturers WILL be coming up with a better solution for preowned rather than just locking it all down...which at the end of the day is pretty consumer hostile anyway.


back to the topic at hand, nothing here has lured me away from playstation for my console, and many of my customers....even the previous xbox fan boys, seem pretty disappointed to...but the proof will be at E3


Sony just saved your ass too Ghost.



But then they did this:

I think in some ways the Xbox one is a bit ahead of it's time.

In 5 years from now, turning stuff on via voice command will be common place, all games will be purchased digitally (no more discs, and therefore no more used game industry). Internet streaming TV will be the norm.

However Microsoft is trying to force these things onto people now, and they aren't ready for it.

Use your android phone for the above?

In any case, you cannot use the console without the sensor? Lock down games? OTT price?

XBone will fail. You should see the uproar on reddit. Its even all over Sony's stock, links to how the XBone was killed by sony at E3.

It must be costing microsoft a fortun. As you'll no doubt know, even in software major changes to the design near the end of a project cost a lot.

I find the "feedback" bit hard to swallow, like microsoft have sown their seed, shown their colours.....the trust isn't there....
