that's just the beginning of how they're going to intrude on your life with that kinect thingie.

I just don't see how they can force the Kinect to be configured and on...

I have two Xboxes and neither could be used with the original. The first I have at my desk and with me sitting less than 24" from my screens there is no room to place it (keyboards, speakers, switches, mice, drawing tablet). The second is hooked up to a projector with the Xbox actually being in the room below on a ceiling mounted rack. The front wall is flush as the screen and speakers are all in wall meaning the Kinect, when we borrowed one, had to have the line ran up through the floor and taped down from the back of the room to the front where the Kinect was more or less useless as the projector blinded it no matter how we tried to position it.

Does MS expect us to rearrange out entertainment rooms and computer desks just to use their new system?!?|
Count me out MS... I had some fun with the current generation, but if you require Kinect and/or locked down games you will loose me as a customer.

I'm sure the new kinect is somehow built onto the system.....not an add on like the last gen. So from that standpoint it probably won't be invasive.....but it will be a heck alot invasive on many other levels. Guarantee the most interesting job in the world in the next few years will be the guys working for MS that compile the data on kinect users in order to sell to companies. I don't buy for one second that everything they compile will be with full complicity of the customer. We're lab rats to them, no more no less.

Kinect will have to be separate from the main system, either wired or RF.

There are far to many setups where the box is not going to be in front of the user. In my first case above (my desk) the Xbox is 8' to my right and under the desk. In my second case above the Xbox isn't even on the same floor in the house.

but that's not what they want. They want the kinect right on top of the box so it isn't offset in any way. They want this thing to have the best view of the room as possible, and not just so that kinect games get the best input...so that it has the best viewing angle of the whole room and who's in it and what they're doing. It's about data collection which MS can then sell to the highest bidders.

I really hope these really are just "rumors".

While I don't mind paying for my Xbox live gold membership just to play online. It'd be just ridiculous to not allow people to use second hand games...

Consoles just becoming less and less appealing these days. Anybody else missing the N64 and PSOne days?

Of course, but I miss the SNES days even more! I'm just thankful for emulation! biggrin.gif

The consoles are trying to become pc's and it's not going to work for them

Let me guess. You also think the government is trying to kill us with chemtrails, Roswell is a huge cover-up, all our food is made to kill us and they spy on us using our cell phones and webcams? I seriously doubt they are going to do that. Besides, what happens if you cover the kinect camera with a piece of paper..."Please remove the piece of paper from the kinect sensor so we can continue privately infringing on your life and collecting personal details to sell to large companies because we are nazi's".

my fiance and I have kind of gone old school.

We got a sega mega drive 16 bit, PS2, Nintendo 64, and an Atari 2600

I really hope these stupid rumours are not true, its the reason why i have just recently shied away from PC Gaming
