Just how sensitive is the new XBOX Kinect sensor?

Microsoft demo’ed the new XBOX Kinect sensor and in the process caused a bit of an uproar with the device being able to descern a “buldge” at the users crotch. Calls of NSA spying have been made but really, do you think the NSA cares about the size of your package even if they were to somehow hack into your Xbox ONE and spy on you? Microsoft have aparently listened and provided an XBOX One option without the Kinect sensor.

The Xbox One

Microsoft have just released a bunch of videos in anticipation of the launch on Thursday Nov 21.

From the xbox blog:

As we announced last week, we’re celebrating this Friday’s launch of the Xbox One by throwing massive events for fans in dozens of cities across the world, including London, Sydney, Paris and Toronto among many others. While we look forward to seeing thousands of passionate Xbox fans at these midnight launches, we realize that not everyone can make it out to join in on the fun. With that in mind, we’ve decided to bring the biggest celebration of all, the Xbox One Countdown To Launch show, directly to you live beginning at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT on Thursday Nov. 21.
