This is great! Although I'm against the idea of PS+ being mandatory to game online but it's still way much cheaper than Xbox live

Isn't about the same price? Excluding any deals or sales I mean...I thought live was about $50 USD a year as well.

how will they staff enough people to watch you? even if they record it, there is a good chance they will never even roll over your footage.

so just as a high end example. there were almost 6 million, 360's sold the first year. for an example I probably play about 10 hours of games a week. probably average. so 10 times 52 weeks in a year = 520 hours of footage per person.

That is roughly 3,120,000,000 hours of video in the first year. and that is being generous not including the more extreme gamers that can hit 30+, maybe 40+ hours a week. AND that's only gaming, if you include the folks who will use it to watch tv, and browse and listen to music, since they are aiming for an entertainment system.

you think they are gonna staff people to watch all that? really seriously? the same exact thing with the audio. especially considering most of it will be the sound of the games or tv you are watching/playing.

I think the worry of them watching you is a bit out there. I'm all for good ol' conspiracy theories, but seriously lets use our brains here.

(disclaimer: these are really rough estimates, based on quick google searches for info. also I am not defending xbox or anything, I am actually digging both consoles. )

on topic: ps4 is looking pretty sweet. I actually like the look of both consoles, but I think ps4 wins that contest. the controller looks better too.

You have to think more realistically about this, of course MS doesn't a whole division to to spy on everyone 24/7, but this kinetic and also on DRM opens up a Pandora's Box of "What ifs?". I'm sure it doesn't take that much brain use for someone to see how this is a cause for concern.

The patent they got is one that surveys a room and based on the number of people there was supposed to determine whether to allow you to watch your movies or play your games (it focused on movies at the time but I'm sure game studios would be interested in this). The patent laid out that it would take snapshots at a random interval instead of stream video to verify that you aren't showing content to more people than permitted. So...yes MS can spy on you and have enough information all without having to have a constant feed from your kinect. To be honest I think that's ONE (they're not entirely evil; let's be reasonable people they wouldn't ad it if they couldn't offer some features with it that they knew people used or wanted) of the reasons they mandated it; they have a patent and they want to put that patent to use.

Right now I'm wondering how long/hard it would be to get a Linux system running on these either sideloading or as a replacement. Honestly, with XboxOne supposedly shipping with a version of WinRT(?) I think Sony should have snagged a customized Linux OS for them to just say they have something similar.

yea this would be a defecation storm, to put it nicely. If they started charging for how many people are in a room. I agree with you there

At that point if they actually did start doing that, I think people would just rent the dvd from redbox and use the dvd player instead.

well maybe its just my thinking, but I really see it getting them no where watching us through kinect. I feel it would be a huge waste of time and resources. but I could be wrong.

Probably not.

Generally the studios publishing movies are the ones who dictate whether or not it's regional.

I was always under the impression that it depended on the lock on the drive as you can buy region free blu ray players.
