    "It's gonna happen no matter what so why fight it"

    Brilliant life strategy.
    Yeah, buying PS4 instead of an XBOX because big brother is out there, while still posting on a device that has the same tech built into it is fighting the POWER.

    What is it exactly that you are fighting? I just really don't get that you think the PS4 wont be doing just as much profiling on you as microsoft. What service do you use for e-mail? cloud storage? do you have credit cards? ever send texts or use IM's? Facebook, Twitter? ever search for anything on the internet before via bing, google, ask, etc? If you live out of this bubble, but manage to post on here please tell me your tricks.

    I dont take the stance of if you have nothing to hide, why do you care if people know what you're doing. I even believe we are under a government/corporate structure that is 1 step away from being 100% fascism, but I will get an Xbox One eventually. And when I do, I will have no problem leaving my kinect plugged in. This is a difficult discussion, and i probably agree with you on a lot of points. I just dont see how to live a productive lifestyle and not use these services. I get the x-box is the easiest one to cut out, but i dotn see it doing much good personally.

    To each his own i guess. Enjoy your PS4.

    Heck, many TV's have built in cameras nowadays... I'd reckon that they would be easier to hack into than an XBox... In fact, there was a flaw in Samsung's TV where a hacker could control the camera, although it was fixed once discovered... http://money.cnn.com/2013/08/01/tech...ack/index.html

    Anyhow, back in track... I'm a little upset that the XBox One tour isn't coming to my town. Would like to check it out before the release.

    Google actively reads your email to profile you.

    The NSA has admitted to spying on the world.

    The current tos for Xbox live services state you do not have any privacy.

    But yeah, I'm just paranoid for no reason.

    People like you scare me.
    I'm actually concerned about privacy invasion on a whole as well... I'm just yanking your chain.

    Regarding the Kinect, Microsoft have stated outright that they have no plans to use it for data mining. How you rationalise that statement is up to you. Regarding the NSA and MI5, they have an arsenal of tools at their disposal to tap into our lives. Singling out the Kinect as the weak link is misguided.

    I already have a W8 laptop and I'll soon have a W8.1 tablet and WP8.1 smartphone, so I'm making a strong bet on Microsoft ecosystem. I know that those devices are going to be compatible with the xbox one, for streaming content to my tv and to play certain modes of some games and not with the PS4, but I prefer the PS4 exclusives and also the console is less expensive. I think I'll go with the PS4 because I want a console mainly for gaming. I'm sure I'll lose some other media capabilities but I'll probably have the basics (as I already have with the PS3).

    I am unfamiliar with PS4 exclusives outside of Killzone, Uncharted and God of War. What was it about his statement that you found surprising?

    Both consoles have incredible exclusives, I prefer Xbox exclusives but I can see why someone would like PS4's. No as far as the PS4 being better for gaming? No way pal, the end user will see no difference. Xbox for me because of all the extras (plus I'm too invested in MS to even consider anything else)

    for those interested...

    Xbox One manual leaks, tells you where to position the Kinect sensor | Games | Geek.com

    Not much, but hey, you probably won't be looking at this when you get your One.

    Posting here too cos its awesome!

    I just got a really sweet deal.

    The console, 2nd controller, Titanfall, another "AAA game" and a year worth of this local gaming magazine, all for 529, which is pretty much the normal price for just the console around here.

    It was a deal limited to preorders made from a certain retailer within and during the expo. My fiancee offered to pay half of it, too!

    Update: I have Xbox one day one edition paid for! Getting the play and charge kit. Also preordered BF4. Just for a quick game to install for launch. I will download and install a digital copy of Forza 5. But most likely from here on out im going all digital. I am on the fence about getting Ryse and Dead Rising 3. They look so great! But I'll already have two games to play. But hopefully there is demos for them both at launch and I might decide between the two.

    I'm not much for zombies, but both games looked great. Only played Ryse myself though, but didn't get to play the story mode. DR3 was largely voted as the best thing at this whole gaming expo I visited in the past weekend, there was so much queue to play the game that during the 3 day expo not everyone who wanted to got to even play the game.

    I'm not much for fighting games. But Ryse has interested me. Is it different and unique compared to other fighting/combat games? Not sure how well you can answer this next question since you probably did not have a lot of time with the game but do you think it would have some replay value to it? One more question did you play on a full version of the game or a demo of it?

    It was likely the demo and some.. "secondary offline content". Basically it was the Coliseum-arena with some kinda wave-based survival-thing with some objectives you had to do after you killed all the "gladiatiors". Apparently it's getting some sort of multiplayer (in that Coliseum) too and I've heard mostly good things about the single player campaign, but I can't really answer the question.

    I will most likely not get it myself, at least not at full prize but thats just cos games like that arn't really my thing either, but I did enjoy it and would likely enjoy the single player too.

    Xbox One Day One :)
    Same here...what do we have ? 17 days ? As long as Microsoft Next days it (I ordered my day one X1 through Microsoft)... This weekend, I am going to rewire my setup so I have a HDMI cable just ready waiting for it to hit...

    Pre-ordered Forza 5 at gamestop, going to pay it off tonight (put a $30 deposit down) so I can just pick it up... I will have Forza 5 and Ghosts to start with....

    As for you PS4 fans, The moment Naughty Dog annouces a Uncharted OR Last of US for the PS4, is when I put in the order for one. I will get both but, waiting for a title that I MUST have. I bet I will have one before spring anyway about it...

    I'll probably get the PS4 when it drops down to like $250ish like I did with the PS3. At that time there may be one or two Naughty Dog games that I want to play... Which is about the only reason I played the PS3 :)

    I guess I should look up this Naughty Dog team. I don't know anything they made, but people keep mentioning them.

    Edit: Took 10 seconds to look them up. Jak? Those games were cool. Uncharted? Meh. It seems they don't deal in the genres I care about.

    The first 3 Jaks were some of my favorite games. Uncharted is my 3rd favorite series behind Halo and GTA. They do seem weird from the outside, but they're amazing to play.

    For me, Titanfall is my "must have" game. It has all of my PS4 friends jealous.

    As much as I love Naughty Dog's games, I will say this - the latest Tomb Raider is a better 'Uncharted' than any of the Uncharted games are...

    But, Uncharted is a great game and series. Fun story, cool gameplay, looks great.
