    I agree with you pricture sooo much! Xbox one is an outdated PC too basically lmfao..DDR3 memory and average graphics. I think this is the start of microsoft's downfall.

    When a security surveillance apparatus falls under the control of one branch of the government such as the Executive, it completely destroys the separation of powers provided for within the Constitution.

    The big danger is "Simple Data Mining"
    The focusing on individuals isn't the real power of a massive, population wide, data bases. Assuming you are the dictator or a just a president gone bad, on a gross scale, the NSA's data base can sift and sort the population so that all people of any specific group, can be identified and located if they possess a cell phone.

    Political enemies like opposition leaders, protesters, socialists, tea partiers, Jews, Moslems, blacks, or dissenters can be swiftly removed from the population..
    How would this be done?
    Fundamental laws have been modified or overridden so that NSA's gathered information goes to Department of Justice, Federal warrants are issued, the local police are deputized on behalf of the Federal Government and they carry them out in every city and town across the country.

    Suddenly the Dept of Defense Document for internment and resettlement begins to make sense.
    Far from keeping us safe, NSA has put millions of Americans in danger from unwanted intrusions that can be subject to misinterpretation. No one seems to see this danger.
    A secret surveillance apparatus is an affront to a free people.

    "The further we progress, more inevitable that bittersweet feeling grows. That feeling of over sufficient prevalence, as a distraction to the larger scale." People are losing themselves with the advancements, some use it to their gain, but the mass population can't keep up. Government utilizes this. People now'a'days are like cattle in a barn, following one another.

    Actually no, Xbox One will be giving NSA all the data
    PS4 however has confirmed that you do not need to be always online, While the XboxOne can change that at any moment with a update
    ALSO the fact that Xbox One has a camera installed right on it, and can also record voices and conversation.... So yea, America being a free country, nice joke

    Senator Frank Church spoke of the National Security Agency in these terms:
    "I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return."

    they want to make ppl buy games more than trading them, which will charm the studios and developers to make more games on the XONE

    hxhshow9 4 years ago

    they are doing that to make sure that the games you play are yours and still with you, because more than 24 h for ex. a week would be enough for your friends to finish the game you bought.

    Freaking Microsoft, thats exactly what many of us were worried about with their new console. Total submission to their services and/or products, WTF! I, personally, have been a Microsoft supporter for some time now, and to hear them causing mayhem with all of thier other non-gaming services to force users to use IE10 or begin charging for the use of their Office Products, they have decided to bring in the same stubborn, idiotic, ilogical, and random decision to the gaming platform for the Xbox

    Hey, PS4 is being quiet about any restrictions so you may never know what is going to happen. Knowing Microsoft, they wont be going alone especially knowing the consequences.
