PS4 and Xbox One privacy

Recommended Posts

Take a look back at the user agreement for both the Vita and the PS3 and you'll see they all detail Sony’s right to monitor messages on PSN, and that’s continuing with the PS4. When terms of service says “[W]e reserve the right in our sole discretion to monitor and record any or all of your PSN activity,” that’s merely the company making more clear the online policy that’s been in place all along.

Shocked that a game company would do something like this? Well, if you're planning on playing a next-gen console, you're going to have to get used to it. Here’s Xbox One’s eerily similar to the statement on the service: “You should not expect any level of privacy concerning your use of the live communication features (for example, voice chat, video and communications in live-hosted gameplay sessions) offered through the Xbox Live/Games for Windows-Live service.” Both are acknowledging the realities of 2013, a time when governments (or companies) can do basically whatever they want in the name of security.

 

This doesn't really surprise me.. I assumed they'd have full access to all the info stored on their servers. Just like Facebook and every other site. As long as they don't sell my information then I'm content with them knowing what games I play.

This is one instance that I support this type of intrusion. There actually is a pretty good reason they do this and its simply to cover their ass. There are child predators resorting to these gaming services now to lure in their prey. You also have all the death threats to keep tabs on in case some nut job makes good on it. By keeping all the records they can investigate and/or hand over all records to authorities.

In a lighter note.. I feel sorry for who ever has to sort through COD records... not only is it raunchy and offensive, but the lack of grammar, spelling, and increase use of slang is unbearable.

I've been watching my brother's streams when I can. He was owning some people with C4 while playing as Recon. I need to play this. The fact that snipers have C4 is huge to me. :D Its a shame the twitch.tv streaming has no audio. Looks like its an EA / BF4 issue.

 

He unlocked the EOD Bot and he said the controls are much better now compared to BF3. He was even able to drive it up some stairs. :P

 

I need to find a PS4 on black friday... :err:

 

EDIT

 

*realized I'm posting about BF4 everywhere* lmao! XD

I think we hijacked many posts about BF4 XD XD

 

I'm glad to hear this... the controls were so bad in BF3, I'd always try to roll in to a group of people in a straight line with the torch active hoping to luck out because if I had to turn or hit a bump it was all over. :P

      Do any of you use a specific VPN service for privacy? If so do you recommend a specific company? My older brother uses PureVPN life time subscription and swears by it. He has all his PC's setup with it and his family's cell phones via an app. I'm not as concerned about my privacy, google already knows everything already.. but when I want to download specific things I'll use windscribe's free vpn. I've been using it off and on for a couple months and it seems to work great so far without affecting my download rates too much. I noticed this deal earlier today and I upgraded my 10 gb/month plan to 60 gb. Heres the link:

      Windscribe is decent since it has a browser extension for quick toggling private browsing and a separate software that applies to everything running on the PC. Anyone else have a VPN recommendation?

      Uncharted 4 is $20. I just bought it. I might have to put Mass Effect on the back burner.

      The new PlayStation 4 firmware update will include external HHD support for game installation. Finally. I honestly didn't realize the original PS4s even had USB 3. They are also finally adding custom wallpapers via screenshots. About damn time. The wallpapers in the online store are complete garbage. I'd still prefer to use my own .jpg files like on the PS3, but modders used that feature as a way to hack the system which is why we never got the functionality in PS4. Using a screenshot is completely fine with me.
