“Microsoft’s new Xbox meets the definition of a surveillance device under some Australian laws, so they need to be upfront and tell customers whether anyone else can intercept their information or remotely access their device,” Vines says, hinting again that users should be able to disable the device’s listening and camera modules, if they so choose.

‘Of course, if Microsoft doesn’t allow that [control], then people should vote with their wallets and skip the next Xbox,’ Vines concludes.”
