+ - Details on Next Gen Xbox Durango Point To Mandatory, Always-On Kinect->

MojoKid writes "Last year, an enterprising fellow, with access to an Xbox Durango early development kit, got himself into trouble trying to sell it on Ebay. Now, the same mole has popped up with early data on the next-generation Xbox that confirms some rumors. According to SuperDaE, the Xbox Durango will ship with a more capable version of Kinect but what will raise eyebrows is the assertion that Kinect must be calibrated and turned on for the system to function. This is particularly disquieting given that Microsoft has already filed a patent application covering the use of a motion detection device to determine who is in the room watching content at any given time. On the plus side, reportedly the new Kinect is substantially more powerful than the old, with a 1920x1080 resolution, a wider sensor, and the ability to track up to 6 people rather than just two."
