Germany is not Happy with Potential Xbox One Spying

Microsoft and its newly announced Xbox One console have taken a variety of different beatings over the past week. Whether it was for its lack of backwards compatibility, the fact that it looks like a clock radio from the 80s or its ridiculous licensing system for used games. In Germany however, the one aspect they’re particularly mad at, is the potential invasive spying that a Kinect 2.0 camera that’s always on and always listening could do. The reason for the Kinect listening out for every word you say, is that you may want to say “Xbox On,” at which point the Kinect would snap to attention and start that Xbox up for you.
