    XBOX ONE : Always Kinect'd. Does it matter?

    http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-57...-and-more-q-a/



    CNET: Kinect now needs to be on all the time. But there are obviously some people who say "I don't want this camera in my living room."



    Henshaw: If you want privacy, we'll give you modes that ensure your privacy. And we actually have a little bit about this on the Web already. We will have something similar for the Kinect with Xbox One. The system is designed to have Kinect be an integral part of the experience. It's not the case where you'll be able to remove the camera altogether. But you'll be able to put the system in modes where you can be completely secure about the fact that the camera is off and can't see you.
    "You'll be able to put the system in modes where you can be completely secure about the fact that the camera is off and can't see you."

    How will this affect your purchase decision if at all?

    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    Doesn't change the fact that if it's not connected you have an expensive brick. Also if the kinect breaks it'll force alot of people to go buy a new one even though they didn't want the first one just to get your console working

    I don't care or worry about the device being used to watch me. I just think it's a totally unnecessary thing for MS to force. If I don't use it, why does it need to be plugged up?

    As long as Kinect comes in the box it's no problem.

    Fullproof privacy mode?

    I <--- This is a wall or the back of your TV. Put the $#@!ing Kinect right up on that $#@! and then use a 9Volt battery to zap the microphone.

    comes with the console and is intended to work as an integral part of the experience. Why would it be an issue??

    Always kinect wouldn't be an issue. I've had my PSEye connected and positioned for months now and it's been months I've actually used it.

    I'm not liking the required Kinect, whether it's off/on or otherwise...

    One way to do that would have been to make sure it is part of the actual box instead of an accessory included in the box.

    Since it's an accessory, it shouldn't need to stay connected (this would mean that they need to design UI/functionality to accomodate when Kinect isn't availalble.)

    Agreed. In fact when I first heard the required Kinect rumor I assumed thats how MS was going to do it.

    That's a good point actually. It's a kinda the same with the Wii U Gamepad, you can't buy those separately can you? Since it ships with every console, so what happens if it breaks?

    Yep. So if your Kinect breaks then your Xbox One becomes a brick until you go out and buy another Kinect. Its ridiculous.

    lol pretty much. This is how Apple came to power.

    Except that they did it right instead of being split into multiple directions.

    Kinect always on = Big Brother : everyone in the room is detected, identified, so that they can personalize the ads they send you ; I bet they'll even identify when you say "McDonald's or Ben and Jerrys" in a conversation to know your tastes

    THAT is something I did not know! Haha, my Wii U is still boxed up from when I bought it on release day, hasn't been opened... but I was sure I read somewhere that you will be able to buy the gamepad as an accessory later on. Huh!
