Re: Offiical XBox (3) Launch Thread

Color me severely disappointed.
It's basically a spy box as it now ships with a Kinect 2.0 in every box that will NOT work unless the Kinnect is attached and on.

Microsoft has filed for patents that allows them to watch you and intend on using to gauge your reactions to movies, ads the games you play and so on, they claim they just want to personalize the system to you, yeah right..

Some of those patents allow them to use the Kinect to see how many people are sitting on your couch, if it's too many in their oppion they may charge you more money for the movie you rent.

They have also added 285,000 additional servers on top of the 15,000 they already have bringing their grand total to 300,00 servers.
They claim it's so you can save your game saves and they can give you updates via the virtual cloud, funny this is, all that works just fine now on the 15,000 servers they have in place now.

Microsoft has already been caught spying on private Skype conversations.

You can ask anyone that knows me, I LOVE MY XBOX but there is NO WAY on God's green earth I will be buying anything that allows anyone to tape me in my own living room.
