The only shock is that they didn't already do it.

Man when i got arrested in 2012, the snitch told the DEA everything. DEA subpoenaed microsoft for all my private party voice chats, Microsoft gave them 3yrs worth. They have been doing for YEARS

Sounds like you must've done something serious. With that said, this just may be a lot of us in the future once (((political correctness))) goes completely bonkers and wrong-think becomes a federal crime.

Yeah, they’re just now “telling” us about it.

[–] elcob32 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

They do. But now they will be doing it for "safety and moderation".

Now the information they collect could be used for targeted advertisements

In other words, don't buy a PS5.

MIcrosoft has been doing this for at least 8 yrs they all do it

Every ps5 controller has an built in microphone. So you can't even avoid it.

i already gave up my ps4 to a family member.it goes without saying that PC gaming is were the freedom is at.

no censorship

no closed walled eco system

backwards compatibility and emulation of previous console games

discounts galore with the storefronts of your choice

no censorship,if a title has censorship the community will come with self made patches

free online,dont have to pony up for extra cash a la xbone gold live and praystation prus

access to free games online from time to time.

etc etc etc

Now that's a sad notion.

Oy vey, Soyny has all necessary rights to listen to all of your conversations through GoyStation network. Now bend over and take that tranny dick, we know you love it, Soyny fanboy.

Imagine being the fucker that has to listen to squeaky prepubescent voices calling each other niggers all day and then pretend that they're making the world a safer place by doing so. Dumb bastards.

I bet you there's a tranny with a gender studies degree that would LOVE to do nothing more than that for next to minimum wage.

Gaming has become so unfun and gay that the other day I dusted off the old GBA for some Metroid and was shocked I didn’t have to log in or connect to a server, it just plays. I can even cuss while playing without getting banned for hate speech. These AAA companies need to fuck off.

Emulators and roms are the way to go. These are the only games I play on my phone. No ads, no connecting, no updates, no microtransactions, no bullshit.

...Implying that they didn't before, which we know they did.

When an organization announces something like this, it's to bring their previously covert efforts into the open.

Just so you're aware this won't be just while using the system. Even if the power is off the microphone will still be listening.

Although if you have a smartphone you probably don't care about this issue.

Dammit, how am I going to call now that rooftop camper a fucking faggot? Oh wait, I'll do it regardless.
