Games Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten:

That said, like online, the console will still function if Kinect isn’t plugged in, although you won’t be able to use any feature or experience that explicitly uses the sensor.

The Xbox One used to require Kinect. Now it doesn't. Good move, obviously, but it does raise the question: whatever the hell was this company thinking? Microsoft really seems to have lost all its marbles - Windows 8, Windows Phone, and now Xbox One. Messy, messy, messy.

For spying, say, what if some black hat hacker, dunno how, can break the system security and take control of ones camera. And no less than when ones enjoying their time with their partner, like this one: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/03/rat-breeders-meet-the-me...

Plus, there's person that hate to be in 'voyeur' ;)
