humble pie sony fans. After all you kept droning on that ms are spying on you through kinect but when ms did there tos it came out that no one can see you through kinect unless they read binary 1's and 0's and the last i checked the matrix is just a movie and neo does not exsist. but now sony tell you they are monitoring you what's the bet these same fanboys are suddenly not bothered about being spied on

Google is joining the spying gig with it's new Android Kitkat. This is bs. Why do we have to put up with privacy violations in all new tech?

I'm sticking with PC and handheld gaming this gen.

The ps4 unboxing is a take on Daft Punk's album release.

So let's see.... Xbox One did this and it was a bad idea.....

PS4 does this and it's a bad idea......

Now we find out that Big Brother is the one forcing them as if pissing off half of our allies weren't bad enough they have to piss off their own people as well? The Gov needs to be cleaned out. Our own Big Brother is starting to look like traitors more than leaders.

When did gaming activity become a terrorist threat or possibel attack!? are you f* crazy? you should worry about being more safe and protect users private information such as credit card numbers and adresses from PSN accounts! And that did not seem to happen on PS3 in the past did it Sony?

HAHA Sony is watching - zing to all the dunce cap shaped tin foil hats.  No surprise that they are able to track all usage.  As stated before read the EULA.  Now while all the tin foil hats try to explain why this is somehow different than Kinect Im going to enjoy some Enemy Within on my PC and wait for Killzone on Friday - cheers and please READ MORE!!!

What I'm surprised about is that people are surprised. If you own a smartphone, computer, or ANY device that has internet capability, you are possibly monitored. I'm a PS person, but all I could do was shake my head when everyone was all over Microsoft about the monitoring thing. Every device will do this. The US government is even forcing companies to relinquish data if the call for them to do so. 

I'm reminded of a day I was looking for deals for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. This was a month in a half ago or so. I STILL get Sly Cooper ads when I cruise the net. Many different sites, and this thing is right there in front of me. I can't say I don't find it a little unnerving.

next gen is worthless so far ,probably in a couple of years from now  when games get better and the price goes back to normal .

The PS4 does look like something from a 80's sci-fi movie.

Do people seriously think companies dont monitor chat via their programs? if nobody listened wouldnt every drug deal/ criminal activity/ terrorist organisation just use a ps4 to plan whatever they were going to do? use your brains people.

Well Sony gave away the personal information of 77 million users WITHOUT their consent in 2011 so I guess asking first is a step in the right direction.

Monitoring also took place on the PS3 to verify claims of cheating, hacking and racism claims filed on the Playstation website. Also this is similar to Apple, Google and cellular networks that save your text messages and picture messages for a minimum of 2 years as required by law. Read the Google terms of service. I also was told this by T-Mobile that they save all text messages in case the records are subpoenaed by court.

What can I say both the sony and MS are NSA little brothers.  Man The days of just playing console games without having the corporates raping your privacy are long gone.  Eff that eff the next gen this gen is my last gen for consoles.  I am done.  Enough is enough man,  cant stand these mofo invading my privacy, its bad enough the government is consistently doing it but to the one place to go to where I can escape reality is now doing it to extreme levels.  Eff it man.  I already let them this gen now they want to rape the shit outta my privacy next gen.  EFF THEM BOTH. Im done both SONY AND MS CAN GO EAT A D.

The PS4 unboxing video is freaking hilarious.  The sad thing is that in Japan, that's probably revered as a completely badass video. hahahahaha

I gotta see how this is gonna be before I judge. If they're watching when I'm downloading something, okay that's fine. Of course they're keeping track of the stuff we download. If they're listening on conversations, I can't say I really care. I won't be taking about anything important during an online match our anything. So really, this doesn't really matter

@xgraderx Well granted no one listened when Xbox tried to explain but PS4 and Xbox everyone knew something was fishy.

Funny, because the camera isn't being packaged with the system...kinda gotta buy it separately.

Also, I dont give a shit if they are watching what I buy or play....I would have a problem if they were spying on me through the camera though.

Price goes back to Normal??? These next consoles are "Underpriced" as far as development from the Manufactures... you think 8GB of DDR5 system RAM is cheap?

@PJthePlayer2 So has MS, Facebook, Google, Hotmail,and many other online services, you can't stop them unless you wanna live in a cave with no phone watching a wall all day.

Having no privacy certainly sucks but really your being monitored in some way every time you step by a public camera or make a phone call, the majority of citizens have probably had at least one of your emails read by someone other than yourself.

@fragsnipa But dude, if you own a smartphone they are doing this. They're doing it right now on your computer. No need to worry about it now, unless you are going to go totally off the grid, it's unavoidable, unfortunately.

@greenaj If it is revered, why would that be a sad thing? And do you even know enough about Japanese culture to even make a statement like that? There is nothing good about demeaning another culture.

@nigelholden @MALEVOLENT312 He is there because he knows they will do him in like JFK and MLK. Charging him with espionage is laughable considering the American people are not the enemy. Hopefully, he will be a playable character ina  future CallOf Duty DLC.

Yes the camera comes with Xbox one but you don't need to plug it in either. So what's your point. Rest assure that if Microsoft is monitoring and releasing data to the gov then is because it is mandatory by the gov which mean sony needs to abide by the same requirements if they want to sell the system in the states.

@Gears_0f_L0ve @hmmblabla @greenaj Who cares? And they would see it as your seeing them right now. Which means nothing. 

Unless of course you think your race is the superior in this world.
