Actually, it is there to play. But what makes them even without the owner noticing it? Data Protection Commissioner Peter Schaar is certain that the new Xbox One is a real problem case.
The Federal Data Protection Commissioner Peter Schaar has sharply criticized Microsoft’s new Xbox game console One. “Under the heading ‘gaming device’ Microsoft pushes a monitoring device in the market,” Schaar said the “mirror”. He pointed out that the console “all sorts of personal information” sign such as reaction rates, learning ability and emotional states. “They are then processed on an external server, and possibly even passed on to third parties.”More about
whether the data would ever deleted, the person concerned could not affect, Schaar said. Fears that Microsoft could also listen to conversations using the console, but he held to be excessive. “The fact that Microsoft now spying on my living room is merely a twisted nightmare,” said the Commissioner. Theoretically, be other experts to consider, but this is possible. The device has a voice control, which makes it necessary that a microphone is turned on permanently. If then there is a network connection, interception is not a big problem.
The company’s new console was unveiled last week. You should come at the end of the market.
