I'm pretty sure the mass information gathering is more important to Microsoft than the gaming.

The gaming is important because they hope people will let that slide because of the great gaming support. Look at how people didn't react too much to the the news Kinect was almost always on, and watching you. I'm sure Bill Gates has seen me masturbate.

Customer's reactions is exactly why the always online aspect of the Xbox was changed.

what do you - didn't react much? They literally pulled a 180 and removed the always online + kinect requirements for the x1 due to sales losses and complaints

How do you gather mass information if people aren't using your OS a lot? Gaming is critical to that end too.

You're missing the point; the fact that most of the information gathering is opt-out rather than opt-in, coupled with the fact that 95% of users will not turn it off due to lack of knowledge/caring about it, means they will of course push their "free" OS to as many people as possible.
