Microsoft: "We'd Aggressively Challenge" Government Spying Via Kinect

Posted on Tuesday, July 23 @ 04:40:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


When Microsoft revealed the Xbox One and announced that the new-and-improved version of Kinect would have to be hooked up to the console at all times for the device to function, a lot of gamers cringed with a mix of disappointment and fear.

Having a camera in your living space that is constantly watching you has proven to be an unpopular feature of Microsoft's next-gen console. As such, the company has spoken out to assuage gamers' fears regarding personal privacy.

MS released the following statement to The Verge regarding government spying via the Kinect:

We’d aggressively challenge in court any attempts to try and force us to do so.

Do you trust Microsoft enough to embrace the Kinect? Does the idea of having an ever-seeing camera in front of your television disturb you? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
